Nutrient Effective for Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Heart Disease

Nutrient Effective for Cancer, Alzheimer’s, Heart Disease

More and more research is stacking up on the healing properties of resveratrol.  Primarily found in grapes and blueberries, this powerful plant nutrient has been found to be an effective antioxidant that protects against free radical damage that is linked to many types of diseases.  It has also been found to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects.

It has even been shown to allow blood to flow better through the blood vessels, giving it excellent potential with high blood pressure and heart disease.  Studies at the University of Switzerland proved resveratrol’s brain-protecting ability.  They found that resveratrol mopped up brain-damaging plaques and free radicals, which have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease.  So powerful is this important nutrient that it has even been referred to a “Reverse-it-all” by many health practitioners.

In numerous studies, resveratrol has had a positive effect on cancer.  In another study, scientists identified resveratrol as a nutrient that activated the human gene for survival and longevity.  Research also shows that resveratrol protects the skin from damaging UVB rays of the sun, thereby protecting it against skin cancer.  What’s more, this potent nutrient has even been shown to protect the body against radiation therapy when used as an adjunct to radiation treatment of cancer.

"You can obtain resveratrol primarily from red or purple grapes and blueberries. While red wine is a good source of this phytonutrient, its alcohol content can be damaging to brain cells and the liver, and can disrupt women’s delicate hormonal balance."

Another reason they shouldn't mess with our food re GM because who knows what it does in the process to damage and destroy the goodness in those foods.

Pterostilbene does everything resveratol does and is 100 fold more bio available. I have researched this.
