Resveratrol Select (Herbal Supplement) REVIEW - Real results? Or "Anti-Aging" hype?
Everyone - it seems - wants to look and feel younger, have more energy, reduce not just the signs but the actuality of our bodies getting older.
But we're not talking of cryogenic freezing or any other extreme solutions here.
Resveratrol Select is a supplement which, the manufacturers claim, may†enhance cell function, boost energy, help you lose weight and burn fat, increase metabolism.
'Let me at it!' I hear you say.
So lets look a little deeper into this product, its claims and ingredients.
Resveratrol is a compound found in a variety of plants including cranberries, raspberries, peanuts, pine trees, and grapes. So the average person may consume resveratrol through eating peanuts, peanut butter, grapes and wine.
Ah... the wine connection. Red wine will keep you young!
It is true that the compound is particularly concentrated in red wines such as pinot noir.†
Resveratrol is produced in the skin of grapes in response to a bacterial infection that affects the plant, thus acting as a natural antibiotic.
And we have been hearing for years that Europeans who drink red wine daily have extended life expectancy.†
This is the purported 'French Paradox' - that consuming a diet full of butter, rich desserts and red wine still results in better cardiovascular health than most North Americans.
Red wine is a staple on most Mediterranean tables - and it contains the powerful antioxidant resveratrol.
Resveratrol Select is composed of the compound - along with other antioxidants such as Green Tea - in a purified form for daily consumption.
Rats! I thought I was going to get to drink my daily glass of red wine for a moment...
However, one serving of Resveratrol Select contains the equivalent of 200 glasses of wine.†
Which certainly wouldn't be healthy!
The manufacturers claim that many leading researchers have examined the potential benefits of resveratrol. 'The biggest medical discovery†since antibiotics!' they say.
'Promising heart-healthy benefits.'
So what does the scientific community say?
'King of the Hill in anti-aging medicine,' is the consensus. With health benefits against a broad range of degenerative diseases and well documented longevity effects.
Although there is still plenty of research to be done.†
Scientists now seem to understand less than they thought they had about the mechanism(s) by which resveratrol work.
The compound seems to work - but we donít understand exactly how.†
Thousands of animal experiments have demonstrated that resveratrol has anti-aging benefits, as well as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antiplatelet, cholesterol-lowering, and mild estrogenic activities.
So it's important to note that Resveratrol is considered a dietary supplement and is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Definitive studies demonstrating appropriate doses, uses, long-term safety and effectiveness have not been conducted.
But there is no doubt that resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant produced by some plants to protect them against environmental stresses. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which are believed to be the cause of aging. Japanese knotweed is the plant source with the highest resveratrol content.
Recent animal studies suggest that resveratrol can also have a positive effect maintaining normal-range cholesterol levels, supporting insulin health and optimizing immune pathways that protect cells.
The natural antioxidants and ingredients in the resveratrol capsules can help your body reduce fat and reduce fat storage.
Although some users say that claims about this product inducing weight loss are totally without substantiation.
But others are happy with the results of Resveratrol Select:
'It took about 3 months to see and feel the effects of this product, skin texture is younger looking and I have more energy.'Be careful about return policies - the 14 day return guarantee is from date of shipping not from the date received. † † † † † † † † † † † † † †
But overall this product is not over-hyped. It contains ingredients which have been researched and have shown benefits in animals and plants.
But it should be noted that the clinical utility of resveratrol in humans is still under investigation.
Always consult with your doctor before taking supplements, especially Patients taking blood thinning medications such as aspirin.
Do not use if you have blood disorders or are pregnant or nursing.
Alternatively, you could keep healthy through diet and exercise and grow old gracefully!
