Resveratrol: A Vitamin Supplement That Fights Disease

By John Fleming

Found abundantly in red grapes, resveratrol is an antioxidant that is being hailed by researchers as an important vitamin supplement in the fight against aging. Naturally produced in plants like peanuts, blueberries and cranberries resveratrol has been linked to stronger metabolism and a boost in the immune system.

While there are many natural sources of resveratrol in foods, red wine contains a healthy dose of resveratrol along with the heart healthy benefits of alcohol. Studies have shown that moderate amounts of alcohol in the diet increases the production of HDL cholesterol and helps to cut down on blood clots.

One of the characteristics of aging is the genetic damage done to our cells. Health researchers have shown that resveratrol inhibits cell damage and give a boost to the bodys autoimmune system. Recent studies have also indicated that resveratrol can aid as an appetite suppressant and metabolism booster and can be a help in the fight to lose weight.

There are even some good news in the fight against cancer. Recent studies have shown that resveratrol can slow down the growth of cancer cells and inhibit the creation of new ones. Alzheimer’s patients can also benefit from taking resveratrol because it has been shown to inhibit the dangerous effects of free radicals released by the oxidization of food in digestion.

Eating natural sources of resveratrol is always preferable to taking supplements and, fortunately, resveratrol can be found in abundance in many readily available fruits and vegetables. The health of your entire body will benefit because of the protection provided for the cells, the heart healthy effects of lowered LDL cholesterol and the increase in metabolism.

Much research is still being done on resveratrol. Recent studies suggest that resveratrol inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria and can act as a natural painkiller. The good news coming out of these findings indicate that resveratrol may very well be one of the best natural food vitamin supplements ever found.
