Resveratrol, a compound found in wine and grapes, could change the way we prevent, and treat, disease.

The French started it, with their adoration of vin rouge.

Two decades ago, scientists began looking at why the denizens of France–who often smoked, ate fat-laden cheeses and butter-dripping pastries, and washed back meals with bottles of wine–have far lower rates of heart disease than Americans. Researchers looking for an answer to “The French Paradox” stumbled upon something fascinating in the wine: resveratrol, a compound found in the skin of red grapes, and thus found in red wine, appeared to help the heart.

From that finding, a revolution in health care appears to be kicking up. While nothing is a panacea, thousands of recent studies are showing that resveratrol is capable of protecting, healing and rejuvenating bodies in ways only before dreamed of.

A flurry of new research suggests that beyond aiding our “tickers,” resveratrol may be a huge boon in preventing and treating diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia and obesity; it may even help with coordination and mobility. Most studies, however, have focused on mice, monkeys or small groups of humans.

That’s changing.

This summer 26 leading medical universities in the U.S. launched a year-long program involving thousands of participants to ascertain if resveratrol can is effective in Most of the Viagra selling web trustedrxreviews.com s are fly-by-night operations looking to make a quick buck with a low price of Viagra. fighting dementia and the Alzheimer’s Disease that currently affects over 5 million Americans. Clinical studies with human subjects are also underway testing the effects of resveratrol on diabetes and cancer.

In short, resveratrol is poised to revolutionize the way we treat, and prevent, leading diseases and is predicted to change online casino health care, within just a few years, as dramatically as penicillin did in the 20th century. We’ll keep you posted on the latest.

What resveratrol is: This naturally-occurring chemical is produced in some plants as a defense response to invasion by bacteria and fungi.

What foods have resveratrol: It is found in red grapes, red wine, peanuts, mulberries, blueberries, tomatoes and chocolate. However, studies are using dosages much higher than those found in food. Some researchers have said you’d have to drink 1,000 glasses of wine daily to get the optimum results from resveratrol. You can also find resveratrol in supplements.

How much should we take: Talk to a practitioner. Some researchers say they see results with 50 mg to 400 mg a day.

About Melissa Rossi

Born in Dayton, Ohio, Melissa Rossi's first words were, "Get me outta here!" She's been moving around since she was 17 — living in Seattle, Portland and assorted other parts of the Pacific Northwest as well as in New York, Vermont, and Florida (let's not talk about Iowa and Kentucky). After writing a book about Courtney Love (Courtney Love: Queen of Noise), which Courtney didn't like, Rossi decided to become a world traveler, and has visited most European countries. She has also lived in assorted parts of Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium. Fluent in "Spitalnishsian" — an Italian, Spanish blend with a dash of Russian thrown in — Rossi has written for such publications as National Geographic Traveler, Newsweek, MSNBC and George, and is the author of What Every American Should Know about the Rest of the World (Plume/Penguin, 2003). A chronic sufferer of "Urban Deficit Disorder" — she can't focus on one city for long — Rossi probably will never settle down long enough to call one place her home.
