If you’re curious if there is a cancer cure with Resveratrol then the answer is maybe but probably yes. Resveratrol is a substance that is created from the plant world in order to protect itself from attacks from compounds such as toxins and fungus’s. Grape skins, peanuts, strawberries all have this substance in it but of course it’s most famous for being in red wine.
The French culture has also helped propel the buzz because in their culture they have a very high diet of saturated fat yet have low cases of heart disease. One of the theories in this is because the majority of the population in this country drinks a lot of resveratrol which is in red wine.
This nutrient can be a cancer cure because it’s an antioxidant. This means that it prevents free radicals and toxins from damaging cells and a damaged cell is mostly what this disease is all about. Resveratrol can also cause cancerous cells to kill themselves, sort of like every cell of resveratrol is a little Jim Jones that can persuade cancer to drink some cool-aid.
Resveratrol was fed to mice with the worst kind of cancer diagnosis and the result was an 87 percent increase in the chance that the mice would not get the cancer.
Yes, I know mice are not human however the result is still very positive, yes?
When it comes to breast cancer in lab studies resveratrol was found to suppress the abnormal cell functions, which could help with prevention. In a study in the University of California it was found out that this nutrient protected enzyme called caspasses that kill of cells that are in danger of turning into cancer.
Plus it has anti-inflammatory properties which can also help. Preventing Cancer is just one area that this substance can help with, others include acting as a blood thinner which can reduce the risk of strokes or heart attacks, a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s, hearing loss and can help with reducing weight.
Resveratrol is one of the nutrients where I believe many health professional recommend taking a supplement rather than drinking tons of wine. Of course grapes are great to eat however there are negative side effects with drinking too much wine.
One major side effect with too much wine consumption is a condition called cardiomyopathy which is where the heart muscle becomes weaker and this can lead to heart disease. The ailment Pancreatis can occur from too much alcohol, obesity can happen as well because of the calories and intoxication.
Also to clear up any confusion resveratrol helps someone lose weight because it activates the SIRT1 gene which enables more stored fat to be burned for energy while wine provides calories which people can gain weight from.
Supplements are not the holy grail and there are some problems with them. The big one is that regulations are very tiny which means consumers don’t have a lot of protection. If you do a Google search on how someone can choose a good supplement your probably not going to find any good information.
Due to this I created a eBook on this subject. What is very interesting on all the research I did was the role of the FDA. To view this eBook click on FREE eBook on herbal supplements.
