The Miraculous Benefits of Resveratrol

What is Resveratrol?

Resveratrol is a phytoalexin, a class of compounds produced by many plants when they are infected by pathogens or physically harmed by cutting, crushing, or ultraviolet radiation.

What are the benefits of Resveratrol? 

Resveratrol has many health benefits but the simplest way to describe it as a supplement that nourishes the Mitochondria in the body. It seems to roll back the effects of aging on the cells.

Here are a few of the major things we covered in this video:

Resveratrol Helps Athletic Performance

Improve Athletic Performance

Resveratrol Protects the Heart

Pre-conditions the heart and brain from damage caused by strokes and heart attacks. Does this by raising the activity of heme-oxygenase, a protective antioxidant enzyme that is usually activated after heart attacks and strokes. This means individuals can sustain a heart attack or stroke and suffer small or no adverse consequences.*

Prevents blood clots that cause strokes and heart attacks by inhibiting the enzyme phosphoinositide 3-kinase.

Increases the activity of an enzyme called human endothelial nitric oxide synthase which then produces nitric oxide, an agent that widens blood vessels and controls blood pressure.*

Resveratrol Helps You Overcome Insulin Resistance

Resveratrol chemical Structure

Blocks fatty acid synthase, an enzyme responsible for the conversion of sugar to fat. Resveratrol also inhibits lipase, the enzyme that helps to absorb fat from the digestive tract.

Resveratrol helps to overcome insulin resistance, allowing insulin to enter cells to produce cellular energy, and thus reduces insulin levels in the blood circulation, and subsequently reducing hunger pangs. (High insulin levels tell the body to obtain more calories to burn.)*

Activates a DNA-repair survival gene called Sirtuin 1 that mimics the beneficial effects of calorie restriction. Produces health without having to deprive oneself of food.*

Resveratrol works as an Antidepressant

Works as an anti-depressant by inhibiting the enzyme monoamine oxidase (MAO inhibitor).*

Resveratrol Works as and Anti-inflammatory Agent

Inhibits the enzyme cyclooxygenase, making it an anti-inflammatory agent (COX-2 inhibitor), without the typical side effects seen with Cox-2 inhibiting drugs.

Resveratrol also lowers homocysteine, an undesirable blood protein.
Prevents blood clots, bacteria, viruses, cancer cells, and cholesterol plaque from sticking to the inside wall of arteries by an anti-adhesion factor, thus preventing the spread of cancer and infection.*

Resveratrol Protects the Brain

Eradicates brain plaque called beta-amyloid, believed to be involved in Alzheimer’s disease. It does this at very low concentrations (millions of a milligram).

Rescues the liver from a condition known as fatty liver despite a high-fat diet or alcohol consumption. 35% of Americans have fatty liver.

Inhibits the effects of excitoxins like glutamate on the brain. (MSG toxicity)*

Resveratrol Helps the Liver

Prolongs its half-life from 14 minutes to a 9-hour survival in the blood circulation by conjugating with (locking onto) sulfur and glucuronate in the liver (called glucuronidation). Then an enzyme called glucuronidase, which is produced as sites of tumors, infection, and inflammation unlocks resveratrol from glucuronate and delivers resveratrol at the right time and place.*

Resveratrol Has Anti-Aging Effect

Resveratrol inhibits telomerase, the enzyme responsible for shortening the end caps of chromosomes.*

Resveratrol Ha Been Studied on Cancer Cells and Viruses

Cancer cells express a protein called survivin, that allows cancer cells to evade the immune surveillance system, survive and multiply. Resveratrol inhibits survivin.

Resveratrol acts as an antibiotic against bacteria and is said to exhibit strong antibacterial activity against antibiotic-resistant bacteria (vancomycin-resistant Enterococci and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Resveratrol exhibits strong action against all manner of viruses, including the herpes virus (infects 80% of mankind), influenza virus, and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV).

Resveratrol is an anti-fungal agent on the grapevine and in the human body and is active against Candida albicans.*

Foods Naturally Rich in Resveratrol

Plants that synthesize resveratrol include knotweeds, pine trees including Scots pine and Eastern white pine, grape vines, peanut plants, cocoa bushes, and Vaccinium shrubs.

Resveratrol is found in that berries, including:

  • blueberries
  • raspberries
  • mulberries
  • cranberries
  • and bilberries

Resveratrol effects the Hormones in the body

It helps lessen the side effect associated with Menopause.

It supports the new cell growth of glands all over the body. Especially protective for the Thyroid and Pancreas.

Is there Resveratrol in wine? 

I listen to a lot of videos by Dr. Eric Burg. I have learned from him that there is a little Resveratrol in red wine. But does that mean it is good for you? Not really, Alcoholic beverages hit your insulin receptors 3 times as hard as eating straight sugar or drinking a sugar ladened soda. The 2nd piece of is that Alcoholic beverages take a hit on the liver. The damage that one glass of wine causes to the liver may cause the liver up to a week to repair. The conclusion being that the amount of Resveratrol in a glass of red wine is not worth the damage that the Alcoholic beverage does to your body. 

Is drinking wine before bed healthy? 

Not really – it hits your body like a sugar making your body work on insulin management instead of healing the cells. 

A nice herbal tea before bed would be a much healthier choice.

Antibiotic Gloom and Doom

Over and over we are told the world is ending for modern medicine regarding the fight against germs and viruses of every form. We now know people are dying in hospitals from flesh-eating bacteria and the elderly are succumbing from upper respiratory infections by the hundreds of thousands.

What can be done? Hand-wringing… for sure. Research…yes. Money, money, money…you bet!

What if all of this was simply due to patents and control of the marketplace, not medicine? It’s true. Let me explain.

In ancient Egypt, batteries were produced to provide electricity for electroplating jewelry. Read More…

Sharing Results

By Jerry Petermann

Time Challenger Labs International, Inc., maker of Time Challenger Mitochondrial Nutrition systems was recently asked to relate actual instances of product success. This is important since Time Challenger is used by so many around the country and across the world.

Time Challenger was developed over 12 years ago. The base formula was created from information gathered over the Internet and in research journals. It was the first product in the United States to address the problem of depleted mitochondria in our cells, the material which extracts energy from the food we consume. It was noted a few years earlier that aging was in fact a mitochondrial “disease” as the death or mutations of this precious material lead to our eventual demise no matter what ordinary vitamins and herbs we were to consume. The scientific research pointed to special material that, if consumed in the exact ratios and at the proper times and in the correct amounts would restore mitochondrial functions.Read More…

The Benefits of Iodine

Iodine is one of the most important minerals required by the body for healthy cellular and complete metabolic function. Breast tissue, the uterus, the ovaries, the thyroid, the brain and the prostate depend on iodine. But typical intake levels for most people are not optimal.
They need Tri-Iodine®.

Why Increase Iodine Intake?
• Healthy Metabolism and Weight Management Support†
• Increased Energy
• Improved Libido
• Breast Health
• Prostate Health
• Detoxification
• Increased Immune Function*
Tri-Iodine provides the three beneficial forms of iodine you need most.

Tri-Iodine contains three beneficial forms of iodine to nourish multiple body systems. Three forms are included because different tissues in the body prefer different forms. For example, your thyroid tissue absorbs iodine best as potassium iodide, while breast tissue takes up iodine in the
form of molecular iodine. Additionally, there is evidence that using sodium iodide enhances absorption of the other forms.

Reishi Mushrooms 

Reishi, or Ling zhi is the extract of the Ganoderma lucium mushroom.

This mushroom has been used in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicines for thousands of years, who place it in the highest class of tonic medicines, those who benefit the vital life energy.

Often recommended for conditions such as:

  •  anxiety
  • high blood pressure
  • bronchitis and asthma
  • insomnia

It is particularly renowned for its use in hepatitis and other diseases of the liver and for promoting longevity. Reishi is used to prevent “fatty-liver” and cirrhosis.

The Western focus on reishi is on the mushroom’s immuno-enhancing and anti-tumor activities, the exact mechanism is still unknown, but it is thought that the mycopolysaccharides contained in the cell walls may hold the key to the mushrooms medicinal properties

Melatonin & 5-HTP for more Restful Sleep

restful sleepby Dr Mercola

An estimated 40 percent of Americans are sleep deprived, according to the documentary “Sleepless in America,” with many getting less than five hours of sleep per night.

There are many reasons for this, from intentionally staying up late to watch TV or surf the web to health problems (like pain) that keep you awake.

Millions of Americans struggle to fall asleep each night, including about 10 percent who suffer from chronic insomnia. This latter condition involves difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep, as well as waking up too early in the morning.

In many cases, making changes to your sleep-hygiene routine and lifestyle, such as exercising more and avoiding exposure to blue light at night, can significantly improve your sleep.

However, if you feel like you’ve tried virtually everything and you’re still struggling to get a restful night’s sleep, it might be time to consider two natural supplements, melatonin and 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP).Read More…
