Article Body:
Resveratrol supplements are the latest antiaging fad. Aging is breakdown,
but broken things can be fixed. Aging is characterized by a progressive
deterioration of physiological functions and metabolic processes.

The healthy reputation of dietary antioxidants just got more support,
with one type turning in a spectacular anti-aging performance. Research
studies continue to find more interesting benefits from this red wine
compound, including potential anti-cancer and anti-aging activity. As to
its antiaging potential, resveratrol activates a cell's survival defense
enzyme, which prolongs the time cells have to repair their broken DNA.

Newspapers, magazines and TV over the last few years have been filled
with news of the anti-aging, antioxidant and seemingly miraculous
properties of red wine. Wine lovers are probably already aware that red
wine contains a powerful antioxidant: resveratrol. Resveratrol appears to
work as a powerful antioxidant helping quench free radical damage in the
body, but also has a unique mechanism of action that may prove to have
significant life extension properties.

Antioxidant resveratrol action is very important for the heart health
because it can reduce the blood pressure by opening the arteries hence
increasing the blood flow through them. Antioxidants slow down cell
damage and the progression of degenerative diseases such as heart
disease, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's and improve organ,
eye, skin, teeth and gum health.

The primary health component of wine that researchers have uncovered is
called resveratrol. Resveratrol is also found in a number of other foods
and berries, such a peanuts and blueberries but grapes, particularly
winemaking grapes such as Muscadine, are the clear winner.

Resveratrol maintains cell viability and exerts an anti-oxidative action
by enhancing the intracellular free-radical scavenger glutathione.
Resveratrol is an active polyphenol found in red wine that has anti
cancer effects. Resveratrol is known to fight cancer tumor growth.
Resveratrol protects heart tissue from cancer chemotherapy drug.
Resveratrol is known to be protective against oxidative cardiovascular
disorders.

Red wine contains tannins and resveratrol, substances which could explain
the drink's anti-cancer properties. Consumption of red wine is associated
with a slight but statistically significant reduction in the development
of lung cancer, as reported in the journal Thorax. Red wine has been
shown, in some experiments, to be more effective than other alcoholic
beverages in decreasing some of the risk factors of coronary heart
disease. Many believe that the proven benefits of red wine explain the
“French Paradox ” in which the French have lower rates of heart disease
yet consume a high fat diet.

NFI's resvinatrol complete contains the powerful red wine antioxidant,
resveratrol, called « The Fountain of Youth » in a formula that includes
several other important antioxidants. Resveratrol, just one of the
powerful antioxidants in Resvinatrol Complete, is being heralded by

disease, strokes, obesity, diabetes and Alzheimer's.
