The Secret of Resveratrol

The Secret of Resveratrol

This is not a product or site I promote, but will offer you some additional information on Resveratrol, for anti-aging and weight loss benefits. I am loving the fast delivery of the liquid Resveratrol in Eternity at Sisel.
The links and info are attached to the copy I am publishing.

"Dear Reader,

Patients often ask me if they should start drinking red wine. I’m really not surprised— reports touting red wine’s anti-aging benefits are all over the news. What is it about red wine that makes it so healthy? It is a source of a potent compound called resveratrol.

Interest in resveratrol exploded in 2003, when research from a team of Harvard scientists reported that it was able to increase the lifespan of yeast cells. According to their data, resveratrol activates a gene called sirtuin1, which is also activated during calorie restriction. Other studies of resveratrol have reported anti-cancer effects, anti-inflammatory effects, anti-diabetes potential, energy endurance enhancement, and protection against Alzheimer’s.

Now, researchers are uncovering even more of resveratrol’s health secrets. According to two new studies in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, this powerful polyphenol may influence both blood vessel function and the function of fat cells.

The studies report that red wine has a direct effect on the health of the cells lining blood vessels, while resveratrol may also influence the function of fat cells and reduce the risk of developing conditions related to obesity. While these findings are preliminary, they could prove quite promising for anyone with metabolic issues.

In the first study, researchers from the Israel Institute of Technology report that red wine may boost heart health by positively affecting the way the cells talk to each other in the lining of blood vessels. It also triggers the release of nitric oxide, which plays a key role in relaxation of blood vessels (vasodilation). Earlier research shows that resveratrol also helps lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and prevents blood platelets from clumping together inside blood vessels. Taken together, this strongly suggests that that resveratrol can significantly improve vascular health and may even play a role in preventing atherosclerosis.

In the second study, scientists from the University of Ulm in Germany report that fat production in the cells was inhibited by exposure to resveratrol. As in earlier studies, the researchers found that this fat-inhibiting action was due to resveratrol’s impact on the sirtuin1 gene. While this could have huge potential for preventing and treating obesity-associated endocrine, metabolic adverse effects and even possibly extending your lifespan, it’s probably not going to help you get back into your size six jeans.

So should you start sipping a glass of red wine with dinner? If it’s something you enjoy, feel free to one—just one—glass of merlot or pinot noir with your meal. But if you want to reap all the benefits resveratrol has to offer, it’s best to take it in supplemental form.

What’s the difference? One ounce of red wine averages around 90 mcg. of resveratrol. Taking a resveratrol supplement provides 20 mg. or more of the polyphenol in each capsule. This is at least 220 times the amount of resveratrol found in one fluid ounce of red wine. Just make sure to use a standardized supplement to ensure potency.

Another benefit? While drinking too much red wine has obvious drawbacks, supplemental resveratrol is extremely safe and shouldn’t interfere with any medications you may be taking. So, whether you’re looking to improve your survival odds or simply avoid chronic disease, chances are that resveratrol can help.

Be well,

Resveratrol..anit-aging and Weight Loss?

YES!!!!  Resveratrol has some anit-fat and weight loss aide properties. You know that resveratrol has been identified as an excellent anti-aging supplement, it has been seen on the news and now even Dr. OZ has his own supplement. If you have missed some of the discoveries check the 60 Minutes (Part 1) report below :

In fact, YouTube has a whole playlist on Resveratrol.  Through research it is also being looked at as a Weight loss aide. Resveratrol has been shown to reduce the number of fat cells  in laboratory mice in several studies. According to a recent study by researchers from the University of Ulm in Germany, resveratrol may one day be utilized to treat and or prevent adolescent and adult obesity.
Resveratrol can be found in red wine, which recently has been shown to be harmful to women (the red wine-not the resvertraol) and even in moderate quantities can add cancer risks for breast cancer.

The benefits of resveratrol are many, both for anit-aging and weight control. Taken as a healthy liquid supplement, the absorption can be maximized for long range health gains. It may even be possible to add 30 years to your life!!!  Sisel International's  Eternity is one of the most powerful Resveratrol supplements. SISEL uses nanotechnology to make Eternity up to 250 times more available than encapsulated Resveratrol. Each one-ounce serving of SISEL Eternity supplies approximately 124 mg of Resveratrol. SISEL Eternity is one of the most potent Resveratrol supplements available.  It is wonderful to find a company that makes such incredible products available on an international level so many can enjoy ultimate health benefits.

Cortisol and Weight Gain

Whether you have recently lost a job, started a new one, have any kind of crisis in your life (and who doesn't?) the added stress can make it difficult to lose weight. Stress causes your adrenal gland to secrete more Cortisol (the stress hormone). Cortisol can increase your appetite, but also stimulates your body's release of the fat-storing hormone insulin. The result: Your body holds on to its fat stores as hard as it can, even if you're eating less than before.

Anyone that has struggled with Cushing's Disease can tell you what a MAJOR impact cortisol can have on weight gain. Hormones regulate almost every cell and organ, and function in our body. In an earlier post we mentioned the hormone ghrelin as a hormone that stimulates appetite. Cortisol is known as the “stress hormone” due to excess cortisol being excreted during times of physical and physiological stress. Cortisol has been shown to not only affect weight gain, but also where weight is put on. An elevation in cortisol levels has been shown to cause fat deposition in the abdominal area. A high amount of fat in the abdominal area has been correlated with cardiovascular disease, heart disease and stroke.

This was a brief explanation about how high cortisol levels and weight gain are related to each other. High levels of cortisol for a prolonged duration doesn't just cause weight gain, but also causes muscle pain, premature aging, insomnia etc. Cortisol release in blood flow increases when a person is under stress.
Through the science of getting thin a new product has been introduced that acts favorably with the glandular system of the body to nutritionally support optimal levels of weight related hormones including Cortisol and Grehlin. The product , called Transfigure has been developed to synergistically work with the other products in SISEL’s Slim & Slender Rapid Weight Loss System. It is exciting to know that science is working to make things easier in life, and explain some of the many factors that make losing weight  so difficult.

Metabolism and Weight

Many of us find it harder and harder to lose weight, even that five pounds we used to shed in a week for a new party dress. Remember those days? 

"If you never had problems losing or maintaining your weight in your 20s or even in your early 30s, you may not be ready for what happens next,” warns Madelyn H. Fernstrom, Ph.D., director of the Weight Management Center at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. “Your metabolism slows by 5 percent each decade. Compared to age 25, you’ll burn about 100 fewer calories a day at 35 and 200 fewer at 45. Do nothing, and you could gain eight to 12 pounds a year.”

With age, muscle mass diminishes and so does your metabolic rate (the number of calories your body burns throughout the day, whether you’re sleeping, sitting, or sprinting to catch a bus). " (From GoodhouseKeeping)

In fact as you age your basal metabolic rate (bmr) drops by two per cent for every decade of your life. Also, you lose 3.2kg (7lbs) of lean body mass with every decade, which is replaced by fat. Therefore, as you get older you need to change what you do to stay fit, slim and toned - you need to do more exercise to turn back the clock.

Another thing that affects metabolism is smoking. We all know NOW is the time to quit...but what will it do to our weight? The nicotine in cigarettes acts as an appetite suppressant. The nicotine may slightly increase your metabolism as well. When you quit smoking, your appetite and metabolism return to normal — which may lead you to eat more and burn fewer calories. Also, your ability to smell and taste food improves after you quit smoking. This can make food more appealing, which may lead you to eat more. And if you substitute snacking for smoking, the calories may quickly add up.  (Mayo Clinic)

Considering all of the facts, it is only reasonable that science would start working on ways to help moderate these changes in metabolism. The incredible progress made here can help attain and maintain a healthy weight.

Are We Battling Biology or Bad Habit? Hormone may cause Obesity

This is from an article at Science

Action Of Ghrelin Hormone Increases Appetite And Favors Accumulation Of Abdominal Fat

"ScienceDaily (May 26, 2009) — The ghrelin hormone not only stimulates the brain giving rise to an increase in appetite, but also favours the accumulation of lipids in visceral fatty tissue, located in the abdominal zone and considered to be the most harmful. This is the conclusion of research undertaken at Metabolic Research Laboratory of the University Hospital of Navarra, published recently in the International Journal of Obesity......
It is precisely this accumulated fat in the region of the abdomen that is deemed to be most harmful, as it is accompanied by comorbilities, visceral obesity being related to higher blood pressure or type 2 diabetes. Moreover, being located in the abdominal zone and in direct contact with the liver, this type of fatty tissue favours the formation of liver fat and increases the risk of developing resistance to insulin. Normally, on being associated with hypertension, high levels of triglycerides, resistance to insulin and hypercholesterolemia, visceral fat favours the metabolic syndrome, the researcher pointed out."

Japanese scientists discovered ghrelin in 1999. A year later, American researchers found that it drives appetite.  

Ghrelin is mainly created in the stomach, where it circulates in the blood, eventually sending a message to the brain to stimulate appetite. The Implication is that this is one of the ways in which the body fights against weight loss, which might help explain why millions of yo-yo dieters can’t keep the weight off. It works to keep up the weight..for survival purposes.

With this knowledge there has been product development that can decrease the effect of ghrelin by up to 40% helping to curb the appetite.  Obesity is becoming a major health issue and understanding the science of getting thin can help develop aids to work against obesity and help people lose weight and keep it off.
