Life Extension Optimized Resveratrol With Synergistic Grape-Berry Actives is One of the Best Anti-Aging Supplements Available
Life Extension, through much scientific research, has discovered specific compounds which mimic calorie limitation's ability to cause youthful gene expression. This is the technique by which genes communicate signals that inhibit certain aspects of the aging process. These compounds include quercetin, trans-resveratrol (which researchers contend is the most active constituent), and certain chemicals found in berries, including trans-pterostilbene and now fisetin.
Resveratrol, a natural plant antibiotic, is a phytoalexin which is made by Vitis vinifera as a response to attack by certain molds. Due to the widespread use of pesticides in the growing of wine grapes, including the practice of copper sulfation, resveratrol levels in wines has drastically declined. Although it has fluctuating amounts depending on where the grapes are produced, red wine can contain high amounts of resveratrol. Today's red wine usually contains only 1 to 3 mg's of resveratrol per liter, even in the most robust red wines. Years of relentless scientific research has produced a standardized resveratrol extract which is now available as a dietary supplement.
Life Extension has funded research which has shown that a supplementation of small amount (20 mg) of resveratrol, along with grape seed extract, show the ability to mimic many of the favorable gene expression changes seen in calorie-restricted animals. However, other scientific research has shown that higher doses of resveratrol may be required to achieve all of the positive benefits including protection against the toxic effects of a high-fat diet, enhanced mitochondrial function, promoting healthy insulin sensitivity, and reduced expression of inflammatory factors.
Life Extension has combed through many published studies on resveratrol to achieve the perfect dose that humans might need to duplicate the results found in the research. Life Extension’s research has discovered a wide range of potentially effective doses: from 20 mg/day to 250 mg/day and higher. The potency of resveratrol you need should be based on your level of health and/or your desire to live the longest, healthiest life possible.
A chemical found in strawberries called fisetin, has the ability to enhance cell signaling molecules which support youthful gene expression, DNA protection, and healthy functioning of your cells. Fisetin also supports aging neurons in the presence of oxidative stress, but more importantly, it works in unison with resveratrol. Scientists have discovered compelling evidence of fisetin’s ability to stabilize resveratrol by protecting it from metabolic breakdown, thus extending its beneficial ability! So Life Extension added it, along with these other four calorie restriction mimics, to this most advanced resveratrol formulation.
A stilbene compound from the same family as resveratrol known as pterostilbene, has been shown to work in unison with resveratrol, to unlock your longevity genes … thus conferring even greater anti-aging benefits.
