Resveratrol is a potent anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-estrogen, anti-cholesterol, weight-controlling, blood pressure and blood sugar-normalizing agent. Resveratrol is the first natural medicinal to have solid evidence behind it showing that it blocks or stops many stages of cancer. Resveratrol not only prevents cancer, it’s being proposed as an additional treatment. [1-3]*
Now let's talk anti-aging. Does it seem too good to be true? Yes, of course, to many of us. But we're reading about it everywhere and watching the benefits on news report. In fact, just today the headline on yahoo.com features a You Tube clip of an interview with Barbara Walters and Dr. David Sinclair "Live to be 150. You can do it." Dr. Sinclair isolated the molecule from red wine and stated we would need to drink 1,000 bottles of red wine per day to experience the health benefits of resveratrol. It activates certain gene (the anti-aging gene)in our bodies. He hopes to get FDA approval in the next 5 years.
We have good news at Lake Pleasant Chiropractic and I know all informed natural health doctors would share the same news. Resveratrol does not have to be bottled into a pharmaceutical to provide the remarkable health benefits. We're been carrying resveratrol in our office for the past year and seeing the benefits ourselves. The natural extract is concentrated in "Resveratin" manufactured by Xymogen, one of our supplement lines we carry. We strongly encourage and emphasize that there is no miracle pill out there. This one may seem to be one. Our philosophy is that health is a journey, a participation sport between you and your natural health doctor (both on the same team of course). Health does not get handed to you in form of a pill potion or lotion. Implementing a healthy lifestyle involving physical, biochemical and psyhological strategies will have a synergistic effect on appropriate nutritional supplementation. Call us at (623) LP CHIRO for more information on Resveratin and our Creating Wellness Lifestyle Program.
