Lately there has been an interest in examining more closely the roles that natural plants play in aiding regulation of balance in the human body. Resveratrol and several other noted products have gained prominence as researchers uncover ever more exciting properties in terms of human longevity and the potential to treat human disease. Most alkaline based natural plant life, when edible, are extremely potent anti-oxidants.
Resveratrol in particular has proven to be extraordinarily exciting for researchers because of the plethora of diseases it has shown positive results on. The research is not all concluded, but dozens of repeatable tests are showing that Resveratrol has had a very positive action in mice and smaller animals. They share a large portion of the human DNA.
There are even strong hints that chronic lifestyle type diseases such as Diabetes Type 2 and certain symptoms leading to high blood pressure may react positively to Resveratrol. The Japanese Knotweed is one of the primary natural sources of Resveratrol. Resveratrol is now available in convenient capsule form.
One of the paths that first led modern researchers to examine Resveratrol in a different light within the past decade has been the emergence of what some are calling the French Paradox. The French apparently have lower incidences of high blood pressure and heart attacks on average as a population than many others in the western world. This revelation prompted many researchers including the French themselves to examine their diet(s) for differences.
The most obvious to most onlookers is the love of the French for their red wine. Red Wine is often consumed at every dinner and for some almost all meals. Red wine, but not white wine, contains very small amounts of Resveratrol of between 4-6 grams per liter.
Some researches say that by the time the stomach digests or converts this resveratrol there is too little Resveratrol getting into the blood to make a difference. Others say that the French drink so much red wine and so frequently that these small amounts have a very positive ongoing accumulative effect over many years.
Part of the continuing debate about the French paradox is that those who have studied the science state unequivocally that you can’t drink enough Red Wine to get the amounts of Resveratrol required. Getting some Resveratrol into your diet in other ways is preferable for most. If you believe in the positive results shown in many smaller animals already, take a resveratrol capsule or two daily and get its many benefits now.
