Resveratrol Anti-Aging Part1

Hi, I am Arrow from LYRA USA.
It's no joke, there really are health benefits to that glass of merlot you sip every now and then. It's true! Resveratrol, a powerful plant compound, is found in high concentrations in dark pigmented foods, such as blueberries, cocoa, and red grape's skin and seeds and red wine. But the benefits of resveratrol go far beyond the health benefits associated with moderate wine consumption.

What is Resveratrol?
Resveratrol is a polyphenol phytonutrient with strong antioxidant activity in the body that regenerates tissues right down to the cellular level. It provides an array of impressive health benefits and has been proven to reduce the effects of aging. Plants produce antioxidants like resveratrol as a protective mechanism in response to stress, infection, or injury.
Resveratrol is one of the most potent and effective polyphenols discovered to date. Its benefits were first discovered when research revealed longer life spans of organisms fed resveratrol compared to control groups.

What are the Health Benefits of Resveratrol?
Since these first modest discoveries, research surrounding the health benefits of resveratrol have exploded! Resveratrol has been shown to provide significant benefits for everything from cancer to heart disease to hormonal health.
Let's take a closer look at some of the main health benefits of resveratrol with evidence from clinical studies.

Resveratrol Research for Cancer
There are few diagnoses that strike as much fear in our society as cancer.
While evidence for resveratrol's ability to combat existing tumors is limited and conflicting, there is good evidence for its ability to help prevent the development of tumors in the first place. Resveratrol anti-cancer effects result from maintaining cellular health and integrity by protecting cells against oxidative injury and damage and regulating the inflammatory response.
This oxidative stress and injury to cells is a significant contributing factor to the development of cancerous tumors. By protecting against oxidative stress and injury, resveratrol can help prevent the development of cancerous cells before they progress any further. Likewise, unchecked or dysregulated inflammation also contributes to a higher risk of cancerous cell growth. Regulating healthy inflammatory responses within the body can have a cancer protective effect. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, especially when it comes to such a deadly illness!
And when it comes to fighting an existing tumor, it's no secret that chemotherapy and radiation are hard and damaging to the body, even if they are necessary. Resveratrol's powerful ability to protect tissues against oxidative damage resulting from these aggressive treatments can help prevent the development of compounding health issues often associated with their use.

Resveratrol Benefits for Heart Health
Resveratrol has shown great promise for helping protect heart and cardiovascular health. Its potent anti-inflammatory activity can help maintain the health and pliability of arterial walls, protecting against arteriosclerosis and lowering blood pressure.
These anti-inflammatory benefits to the cardiovascular system also include lowered LDL cholesterol levels and reduced risk of blood clots and heart attack, all risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. Evidence for the circulatory benefits of resveratrol in humans is mounting as more research is conducted all the time. Resveratrol has the ability to boost nitric oxide levels and improve the function of endothelial cells, like those which line your blood vessels. Nitric oxide is very important for circulatory health as it relaxes blood vessels allowing for improved blood circulation and promoting healthy blood pressure levels. (4)

Benefits for Brain Health
Brain health is crucial for our long-term health and well-being and is often a particular topic of interest for older adults. Unlike other antioxidants, resveratrol has the unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier making it a potent ally for protecting brain health. In fact, not only can it cross the blood-brain barrier, but it can also restore the integrity of this important junction and promote increased blood flow to the brain.
Use of resveratrol to restore the blood-brain barrier helps protect the brain against rogue immune cells that would attack brain tissues in Alzheimer's Disease patients. In this way, resveratrol reduces neural inflammation and can slow the cognitive decline associated with this devastating disease. Research has also demonstrated positive memory benefits of resveratrol. By improving inflammation levels and neuron health, resveratrol significantly improves functional brain connectivity in the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory functions. Neurotrophic factor is a protein that protects and enhances the growth and development of neurons and synapses in the brain. And guess what – resveratrol increases the level of this important protein in the brain! This improved brain function has led to markedly improved memory retention and scores in studies. Combine this with the neuroprotective effects of reduced free radical damage to tissues, including brain tissues, and you’ve got a powerful brain health booster. Regardless of age and stage of life, resveratrol can help protect and enhance brain health and function. (5, 6, 7)

レズベラトロール アンチエイジング パート1

エレメンタリストスタッフのMakana です。
信じられないかもしれませんが、今あなたが嗜んでいるMerlot (メルロー(赤ワイン))には健康への効能があるのです。パワフルな植物性化合物のレズベラトロールは、濃色の食べ物、例えばブルーベリー、ココア、赤い葡萄の皮とその種部分そして赤ワインなどです。



癌と診断されるほど恐怖を感じるものはそう多くはないでしょう。 レスベラトロールが既存の腫瘍に対抗する能力を示す証拠は限られており、相反するものであるもののそもそもレスベラトロールが腫瘍の発生を予防する能力を示す十分な証拠があります。レスベラトロールの抗がん作用は、酸化的な損傷や損傷から細胞を保護し、炎症反応を調整することで、細胞の健康と完全性を維持することに由来しています。 このような酸化ストレスや細胞への傷害は、がん性腫瘍の発生に大きく寄与しています。酸化ストレスや細胞の損傷から保護することで、レスベラトロールは、がん細胞がそれ以上進行する前に、がん細胞の発生を防ぐことができます。同様に、炎症が抑制されていない、あるいは制御されていない場合も、がん細胞の増殖のリスクを高める一因となります。体内の健康的な炎症反応を調整することで、がんの予防効果を得ることができます。このような致命的な病気の場合は特に、小さな予防が大きな治療の価値になります。
また、既存の腫瘍については、仮にそれが必要であっても、化学療法や放射線治療が身体にダメージを与えることは周知の事実です。これらの治療の結果として生じる酸化的な損傷から組織を保護するレスベラトロールの強力な能力は、それらの治療によっておこる関連する複合的な健康問題の発生(副作用)を防ぐのに役立ちます。(1, 2, 3)

レスベラトロールは、心臓と心血管の健康に大きな期待が寄せられています。その強力な抗炎症作用は、動脈壁の健康と柔軟性を維持し、動脈硬化から保護し、血圧を下げるのに役立ちます。 循環器系へのこれらの抗炎症作用の利点は心血管疾患のすべての危険因子LDLコレステロール値を低下、血栓や心臓発作のリスクを減少させます。

神経栄養因子は、脳内の神経細胞やシナプス(神経細胞の接合部)の成長と発達を保護し、強化するタンパク質です。レスベラトロールは、脳内のこの重要なタンパク質のレベルを向上させます。この脳機能の改善により、記憶力の保持力や成績が著しく向上するという研究結果が出ています。これに、脳組織を含む組織への活性酸素からくるダメージを軽減する神経保護効果を組み合わせることで、脳の健康を強力に増進させることができます。年齢や人生のステージに関係なく、レスベラトロールは脳の健康と機能を保護し、向上させることができます。(5, 6, 7)
