Resveratrol is a potent polyphenol found in grapes and red wine, studies of which have previously associated cardiovascular anti-inflammatory benefits. Moola Joghee Nanjan, from the JSS College of Pharmacy (India), and colleagues enrolled 62 diabetic men and women, in a study in which each was randomly assigned to receive their standard oral hypoglycemic medications, with or without a supplement of resveratrol (250 mg per day), for a three-month. Among those supplemented with resveratrol, the average hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c, glycated hemoglobin) level was 9.65, compared to 9.99 in the control group. As well, those receiving resveratrol displayed a systolic blood pressure of 127.92 mmHg, compared to 139.71 mmHg among the controls. Further, resveratrol supplementation improved total cholesterol levels and total protein levels.  The study authors conclude that: "Oral supplementation of resveratrol is thus found to be effective in improving glycemic control and may possibly provide a potential adjuvant for the treatment and management of diabetes.”

37. Anti-Aging Aid: Aspirin
Aspirin can lower a person's risk of death from any cause, even in men and women who are so inactive that their inactivity increases their risk of death. A daily low dose of aspirin (81 mg) can cut the risk of death in people known or thought to have heart disease by as much as 30-40%, by preventing platelet aggregation.
  A review of nearly 300 studies into the benefits of aspirin has confirmed that low-doses of the drug can dramatically reduce the risk of death from heart attack or stroke. People treated with aspirin or other anti-platelet drugs were 33% less likely to have a heart attack, 25% less likely to suffer a non-fatal stroke and nearly 17% less likely to die from cardiovascular-related causes...
