Description

You've probably heard about resveratrol, a miracle antioxidant found in grape skins and some other foods/gourmetrecipe and linked to a lower risk of heart disease and to lessened effects of aging. Unlike other antioxidants such as anthocyanins, which give blueberries their color and are an integral part of the fruit, plants produce resveratrol only in response to fungal or bacterial attack.

Youve probably heard about resveratrol, a miracle antioxidant found in grapeskins and some other foods/gourmetrecipe and linked to a lower risk of heartdisease and to lessened effects of aging. Unlike other antioxidants such asanthocyanins, which give blueberries their color and are an integral part of thefruit, plants produce resveratrol only in response to fungal or bacterial attack.Thats right -- resveratrol is a natural antibiotic and fungicide. This means that themore natural fungi and bacteria a plant is exposed to, the more resveratrol it willproduce. If a grape plant is repeatedly sprayed with synthetic fungicides -- andgrapes are among the most chemically treated crops cultivated today -- theresveratrol content in the fruit will be lower.

Thats why eating conventional grapes sprayed with fungicides -- or drinking non-organic wine -- doesnt provide much resveratrol at all! So all those people hypingred wine as "medicine" may be totally wrong if the wine is made from grapessprayed with fungicides.This alone may be incentive enough to buy only organic grapes and wines,because resveratrol may also help maintain healthy programmed cell death, thusstaving off cancer. Resveratrol actually alters gene expression in your body,allowing your cells to better resist cancer, heart disease and many otherdegenerative health conditions.Studies have also shown that resveratrol can also make chemotherapy moreeffective against tumors, weaken viruses including influenza and HIV, counter theeffects of a high-fat diet and increase physical endurance. Perhaps mostmiraculously, resveratrol supplements appear to extend the lifespan of yeast,worms and even fish.
