Resveratrol is a natural substance found in many plants including grapes, wine peanuts and Japanese Knotweed
Research has shown that resveratrol significantly extends the lifespan of lower organisms such as yeasts , worms and the fruit fly. Other research demonstrated that resveratrol had similar life extension effects on short-lived fish and mice. The reason that resveratrol has these anti-aging effects is unknown, but may be related to the production of proteins by the SIR2 gene. At this point it is unknown whether or not reseveratrol will help extend human lifespan, although research is underway to examine this issue.
Other human clinical research has shown that resveratrol has potent antioxidant effects and was able to help reduce the presence inflammatory chemicals in the body, leading to an anti-inflammatory effect. Consequently, resveratrol may prove useful in helping to reduce common, everyday inflammation caused by a number of lifestyle factors.
In addition, the SIR2 gene in the body of animals and humans produces the protein sirtuin 1 or Sirt 1. Sirt 1 promotes fat mobilization in adipose (fat) tissue. Resveratrol is also a known an activator of Sirt 1, and was shown in research to protect mice against diet-induced-weight and insulin resistance. By means of stimulating Sirt 1 in mice, resveratrol was further shown to improve glucose balance. The question of whether resveratrol will have a similar effect on humans is an intriguing one. More research needs to be done to answer this question.
