Introducing NuRev!  America's #1 Anti-Aging Supplement
 Resveratrol - The Elixir of Youth!
The discovery of Resveratrol has caused a flurry of excitement amidst scientists and researchers. This is due to the fact that Resveratrol holds promise of longevity and defiance of premature aging.
Resveratrol is a member of stilbenes, a class of polyphenolic compounds.  It is rich in flavonoids and has antioxidant, anti inflammatory and anti atherogenic impact.  Some plants like Eucalyptus and knotweed produce stilbenes when they are exposed to stress, fungal infection, UV rays and injury.  Resveratrol is also found in natural foods like grapes, blueberries, cranberries, bilberries, peanuts and the French red wine.  An ounce of French Red wine contains 90 micrograms of Resveratrol.  Since Resveratrol is found on the grape skins it is hardly present in white wines were the grape skins are discarded during preparation of the wine.
A study by the Harvard University on mice revealed that when Resveratrol was fed to mice on a high calorie diet, it reversed the enlarged liver conditions of the mice.  The incidence of obesity, heart diseases and arteriosclerosis in these mice cause by their unhealthy diet was eliminated by Resveratrol.  In fact Resveratrol augmented survival rates of mice on unhealthy diets by 31%.  These mice also built up energy levels that the researchers compared to that of trained athletes.  The study results have indicated that Resveratrol may help treat aging related diseases.
Resveratrol works as an anti aging agent by targeting HDACs- histone deacetylase enzymes related to aging and life span control.  Resveratrol has been found to be able to imitate the effects of calorie limitation; Resveratrol stimulates a gene called mammalian SIRT1 gene just as calorie restriction does.  This gene promotes life span.  Resveratrol activates AMP-activated kinase (AMPK) which is an enzyme that enhances insulin sensitivity and fatty acid oxidation.  Resveratrol also kindles AMPK, which promotes longevity.

Resveratrol is rich in antioxidants.  The Resveratrol antioxidants may help to prevent photo aging
and enhance skin freshness, softness and quality.  These antioxidants may help destroy free radicals that cause premature aging.  Resveratrol is hence great for skin care.
Resveratrol may also help to boost your energy levels and give you the vigor and flexibility of youth.
Resveratrol may combat ailments related to natural aging process of your body.  It may help make blood vessels nonstick by slowing platelet formation.  This may improve blood flow and help to prevent cardiovascular diseases like Arteriosclerosis.  Scientists are attributing the low incidence of cardio vascular diseases in French people, despite their fat rich conventional diet, to their prodigious consumption of French red wine which has Resveratrol.  There is also a strong relation between Resveratrol and cholesterol.  Proper intake of Resveratrol supplements helps in lowering cholesterol levels and eventually may decrease the risks of heart attacks.

It has the potential to reduce blood sugar so it may help to prevent diabetes, an old age disease.


Resveratrol In The Media Spotlight

Red Wine Ingredient May Delay Aging.

Resveratrol may prolong life and fight age-related diseases.

Resveratrol is one of a group of antioxidant compounds called polyphenols found in red wine that has been reported to have anti-inflammatory as well as anticancer properties.

Resveratrol, may counter type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance, a new study shows.

At high doses, Resveratrol appears to prolong life spans and improve health in mice. Human trials are under way.

This research, funded in part by the National Institute on Aging, was published in the journals Nature and Cell in November, and bottles of Resveratrol have been flying off the shelves since. Dr. Brent Bauer, director of the Department of Internal Medicine’s Complimentary and Integrative Medicine Program at Mayo Clinic says “This may be the best thing since sliced bread for human beings, but we just don’t know yet.”

For years, red wine has been linked to numberous health benefits. But the new study, published online in the hournal Nature on Thursday, shows that mammals given ultra high doses of Resveratrol can get the good effects of cutting calories without actually doing it.

“If we’re right about this, it would mean you could have the benefit of restricting calories without having to feel hungry,” Sinclair said. “It’s the Holy Grail of aging research.”
Resveratrol is the ingredient in red wine that made headlines in November when scientists demonstrated that it kept overfed mice from gaining weight, turned them into the equivalent of Olympic marathoners, and seemed to slow down their aging process. Few medical discoveries have generated so much instant buzz.

“Resveratrol makes you look like a trained athlete without the training.”

You can buy this Nurev from Nutronix International.


I think Resveratrol is probably good for you, but be careful where you buy it!! I purchased a free trial supply online from a "60 Minutes" site and was scammed by a Florida Lab. I was billed approx. $500 for numerous "Berry" health products which I did not order, and I was told I had become a member of a monthly supply program... I'm still digging out of all the trouble this has caused me. I think it's better to buy from Costco or other well known stores.
