Red Wine, resveratrol and
their health benefits.
.
Ben Wasseman on July 7, 2008 reported that red wine compound may help
middle-aged men’s heart. A recent study has suggested that middle-aged men
and women could slow aging-related deterioration and functional decline by
using resveratrol.

Resveratrol is a compound found in red wine, grapes and nuts. That study
sponsored and conducted by the National institute on Aging confirmed
resveratrol has some effects of calorie restriction, but indicated that this
compound does not increase lifespan in study mice when fed a standard diet.

The study compared mice fed a standard diet, a high-calorie diet or an every-
other-day feeding regimen with or without high- or low-dose resveratrol for the
aging related health conditions.

Calorie restriction including every-other-day feeding regimen has been showed
to improve markers of health.

The researchers found resveratrol prevented aging-related and obesity-related
cardiovascular functional decline in the mice.

Resveratrol also significantly reduced total cholesterol in 22-month-old non-
obese mice after 10 months of treatment. The compound also improved
inflammation in the heart of some animals. Treated mice tended to have better
bone health and bending stiffness. Aged resveratrol-treated mice were found
to have reduced cataract formation and enhanced balance and motor
coordination.

In spite of all the benefits, resveratrol did not significantly increase
lifespan in animals fed standard chow, suggesting that the treatment
did not affect all aspects of the basic aging process.

However, while the new findings are promising, it would be premature for
people to start taking resveratrol supplements to improve health, saying a
potent compound like this might interact in uncertain ways with other drugs. [3]

On the other hand, another study shows that consuming green tea appeared
to quickly improve the function of endothelial cells. Endothelial cell damage is a
key factor for the onset of atherosclerosis. Thus, consumption of green tea
may promote the health of our heart. [2]

Its side effect can be serious, especially if you are overdosed
