Learn more about the age-defying plant chemical resveratrol, found in red grapes and wine, which can extend lifespan, reduce heart disease and delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
Resveratrol is the latest nutrient to excite the natural therapies world.
A naturally occurring plant chemical, studies have shown that resveratrol extends lifespan. The mechanism appears to be the activation of an age-defying gene known as SIRT. It also reduces the formation of atherosclerotic plaques (a big part of heart disease), inhibits various tumour formation and delays the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Resveratrol is found in red grapes and wine especially cool climate varieties such as Pinot noir. In fact, it appears that resveratrol is the nutrient behind the ‘French Paradox’. Several years ago it was found that people who enjoyed a glass or two of red wine with their meals had a lower incidence of heart disease, even though their diet contained fatty foods. This effect became known as the French Paradox. Resveratrol is also found in peanuts, pistachios, pomegranates, and berries…although why bother to look further when you can enjoy all the resveratrol you need in a glass of delicious Domain Rogha Crois Pinot Noir?
