What is Resveratrol, how it’s the worlds best antioxidant

resveratrol worlds best antioxidant

Unless you’ve been living under a mushroom, you’ll know that resveratrol is the new buzz word in health and anti-ageing circles. But this leaves us with the question; what is resveratrol; the worlds best antioxidant? For the layman, resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant compound found in ‘superfoods’ like red wine. Antioxidants slow down the processes through which our bodies age and degenerate over time.

Resveratrol is a natural antioxidant, produced by plants, and found in the skin and seeds of red grapes (which become red wine), raw cocoa, and dark berries, like blueberries and mulberries.

Resveratrol explained

Resveratrol antioxidant is what’s referred to as a polyphenic bioflavonoid antioxidant, which regenerates the body at a cellular level. Consuming resveratrol (for example through The Wine Doctor range), can slow the effects of ageing, inhibit free radical damage, and protect against myriad health concerns, including heart disease and cancer.

As a naturally-occurring antioxidant, resveratrol has the power to neutralise harmful free-radicals in the body, when taken in a sufficient dosage. Free radicals are naturally produced by our bodies, but, left unchecked, are associated with premature ageing and harmful medical conditions, including cancer. Natural antioxidants, including resveratrol, have been studied and linked to blocking the process of carcinogenesis in humans.

Resveratrol promotes cardiovascular health by protecting blood vessels from oxidation and preventing plaque build-up in our arteries. The anti-inflammatory properties of natural antioxidants have been linked with a lower occurrence of heart disease and high cholesterol.

Resveratrol antioxidant is particularly effective in its ability to protect our brain and nervous system, in a way that other antioxidants fail to do. This is due in part to its ability to increase blood flow to the brain, prevent neurodegeneration, and to improve the cognitive deficits associated with Alzheimer’s Disease.

When paired with a reduced caloric intake, it is also believed that resveratrol can aid in the weight loss. Resveratrol antioxidant works by helping prevent fat storage, increasing the rate at which fat is stored and broken down, and regulating insulin levels.

Resveratrol works by combating inflammation in the body, and having a positive effect on hormone production, blood circulation and fat storage. Ingesting natural antioxidants, like resveratrol, can drastically reduce risk and occurrence of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. In this way, resveratrol antioxidant, paired with a healthy diet and lifestyle, can literally increase your lifespan and longevity.

Absorption of Resveratrol

Our next question is, then, how do we increase resveratrol consumption in our diets? Red wine is one of the most popular ways to increase resveratrol antioxidant consumption – this is in part due to elevated levels of resveratrol in red wine, and in part due to our bodies increased ability to absorb resveratrol through the buccal lining of the mouth (through the act of drinking wine), as opposed to absorption through the gut (in a tablet or capsule form), which is significantly less effective.

The higher absorption rate of resveratrol antioxidant through the mouth means that consuming your daily resveratrol through wine is both delicious and effective. The Wine Doctor resveratrol enhanced wine range is an affordable and practical option to seamlessly implement this consumption into your lifestyle. So know you know What is Resveratrol lets raise a glass to your good health today!

Simple Everyday Habits That Can Help Lower Your Cholesterol

resveratrol helps lower cholesterol

What if I told you that have a glass of Resveratrol Enhanced Wine a day help lower your cholesterol. Hearing that you have high cholesterol is a scary thing, no matter what age you are. Bad cholesterol leads to a plethora of health problems, including weight gain which heightens your risk of heart attack and stroke. Fortunately, there are many ways that you can help get your cholesterol under control. And we aren’t just talking about taking medications — there are simple everyday habits you can adapt. You may be surprised at what habits can help lower your cholesterol.

1) First, give the restaurants a rest

A big part of lowering your cholesterol is adjusting how you eat. The biggest key is to eliminate trans-fat, which is probably packed into many of your favorite foods. By preparing your own food, you can control what ingredients go into them. Plus, you don’t have to be a professional chef to eat better

2) Load up on nuts

Part of adjusting your habits to lower your cholesterol is getting rid of the saturated and trans-fats and replacing them with polyunsaturated fats. The best way to do this is to stop snacking on processed foods like cookies and crackers, and reach for a handful of nuts

3) Have a glass of The Wine Doctor

That’s right — adapting a Mediterranean diet can help lower your cholesterol. And that includes having a glass of red wine at the end of the day. As Mayo Clinic explains, red wine contains resveratrol, which is good for your heart’s health. Plus, red wine is packed with antioxidants, which help prevent buildup of bad cholesterol in your body.

4) Take a walk or Swim

Food isn’t the only thing that can help lower your cholesterol. Creating healthy habits like regular physical activity go a long way as well.

5) Eat Protein

It’s smart to incorporate lots of lean protein into your diet to get your cholesterol levels down. One very easy way to do that is to eat fish a couple times a week.

6) Cut down on sitting

If being active helps lower cholesterol, then you’ll want to get as much exercise as possible. Of course, there will still be days when you want to slouch on your couch and not do anything. But you must fight that urge!

7) Add Fiber

Part of adjusting your diet to lower your cholesterol is adding foods that will fill you up and keep you from craving all the bad stuff. This is where fiber comes in.

8) Incorporate more omega-3s

Olive oil, avocados, spinach, and eggs are just a select few foods that can help give you the good fats that you need.

9) Snack on Fruits

If you’re cutting processed sweets out of your diet, you’re probably going to get cravings and end up relapsing. The solution? Start munching, in moderation on fruit instead.

10) Consult your Doctor

Like with all lifestyle changes, it’s important to have an open dialogue with your doctor about what you can do.

Our favourite thing to help Lower Your Cholesterol is number 3, incorporate daily a glass of our Shiraz, Resveratrol Enhanced Wine.

What are the Health Benefits of Cooking with Wine.

health benefits cooking with wine

We all understand or want to believe the benefits behind a moderate intake of red wine, however can those benefits cross over when we start cooking with wine and how do we make sure we are enhancing not ruining our dishes.

Adding wine to your dishes has the potential to impart mouth-watering flavour and enhance an old recipe or on the other hand, overpower and spoil a delicious dish if poured too generously or at the wrong time. Consider these tips before you start splashing with abundance so that no dinner – or worse wine – is wasted.

Does alcohol burn off over cooking?

If you add alcohol to the end of your cooking process and you will only evaporate anywhere from 10-30% of the alcohol content, however if adding at the beginning stages and allowing the dish to simmer for any longer than 30 minutes will leave you with only 5% of the original alcohol remaining in the dish.

Quality over quantity

One of the biggest misconceptions about cooking with wine is using a product that has either gone off, or you wouldn’t drink yourself. An easy guide to follow for this is if you wouldn’t drink it; don’t use it in your cooking. Cheap wine usually has a high salt content which can ruin even the best of dishes.

Are the health benefits of red wine still available if the wine is reduced to half through the cooking process?

The short answer is probably yes: You can drink your wine and cook with it too.

The long answer; Red wine has two different properties that make it good for health when consumed in moderation. One is its alcohol content, which is known to increase “good” HDL cholesterol and the other is an abundance of natural compounds like Resveratrol that according to studies can help protect blood vessels and help reduce inflammation amongst other things.

In a study publishes in 2011 in The Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology, scientist found that red wine heated to conditions “applicable to the preparation of a mulled wine and for cooking” retained its ability to dilate blood vessels. The researchers found that this ability to relax blood vessels persisted even when the red wine was heated to temperatures reaching 180 degrees Celsius for long periods of time.

In Conclusion

That being said, all evidence points to the consumption of wine in food still contains most of the same health benefits as drinking in moderation. That’s good news if you ask me and to celebrate, I am going to have a glass of wine tonight while indulging in some of my favourite recipes. I’ll be Cooking with Wine using The Wine Doctor Resveratrol Enhanced Wine.

Proof that Red Wine is Good for your Health

red wine good for health

Recent studies have now proven that drinking a moderate amount of red wine is good for your health, but what is it about red wine that is benefiting us. Lucky for you we now have the facts to support this health suggestion without damaging your social calendar.

We’ve been told time and time again to eat your greens; exercise for 30 minutes a day, watch your carb intake, but ‘drinking red wine to improve you health’ now that’s something I am happy to dedicate my time to! Besides, who doesn’t want to feel good about skipping the gym for a few social drinks, knowing that in moderation we are actually contributing to a greater good?

Creina Stockley from the Australian Wine Research Institute has explained that drinking wine with a meal can actually decrease your chance of having a stroke, heart attack and could increase brain longevity. Looking further into these claims it has become more obvious that the one common ingredient to all of these benefits is Resveratrol. So what is Resveratrol and what does it actually do?

Resveratrol is found naturally in plants and has been around for a very long time, this compound is a protective chemical manufactured in times of stress and can be considered as a natural antibiotic (phytoalexin) produced by plants as part of their defensive arsenal against invading parasites. The benefits to taking Resveratrol as a supplement was found to lower blood sugar levels and promote cardiovascular health, however the benefits are endless;

  • Reduced Cholesterol levels
  • Enhanced motor neuron and nerve coordination
  • Lower inflammation of vascular tissue
  • Boosted antioxidant support
  • Improved liver function and skeletal muscle, whilst reducing fatty tissue deposits

Now that’s all well and good however what if I told you, you could receive similar benefits by drinking some specific red wines and by doing so you could actually be improving your health. Resveratrol can be found in all wines although more dominate in reds, keeping in mind that not all red wines will have the same levels of Resveratrol; lucky for you we have done the research for you. One bottle of The Wine Doctors Shiraz has been proven to have the equivalent amount of Resveratrol as 20 standard bottles of red wine.

As if you needed any more convincing to have a glass of wine tonight – raise a glass to your health this evening with The Wine Doctor, Resveratrol enhanced wine, proving again that Red Wine is good for your health.

How Resveratrol can be effective for Metabolic Syndrome?

Metabolic Syndrome and the effects using Resveratrol

Resveratrol is a simple and naturally effective way for Metabolic Syndrome to repair. Most people with heart disease and diabetes are insulin-resistant, which is a root cause of metabolic syndrome with symptoms like raised blood sugar, increased triglycerides, reduced HDL, heightened inflammation, and an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and diabetes.

Diabetes and heart disease are intimately connected. Diabetics without heart disease have the same risk for heart attack as non-diabetics with established heart disease.

The first step in guarding against metabolic syndrome is to gauge the risk of insulin resistance through simple blood tests such as triglycerides, insulin, HDL, CRP, and DHEA.

Insulin resistance and inflammation can usually be reduced effectively without the need for prescription drugs by using the right nutritional supplement and lifestyle strategies.

An Effective Natural Supplement

Nutritional supplements that are effective for reducing insulin resistance include fish oil, chromium, white bean extract, DHEA, vitamin D, lipoic acid, magnesium, cinnamon, beta glucans, resveratrol, and polyphenols found in red wine, skin of grapes, dark berries, cocoa, green tea, and apples.

Resveratrol, a flavonoid found in grape skins and concentrated in red wine, has also attracted a good deal of research attention. Red wine, 355 mL or 12oz per day, has been found to improve insulin responses in people with diabetes. Resveratrol suppresses inflammatory mediators and powerfully inhibits enzymes that break down. In data extrapolated from animal studies, resveratrol doses of at least 20 mg/day are necessary to protect against heart disease. A glass of red wine (about 180 mL or 6 oz) averages just 500 mcg of resveratrol.

In addition, resveratrol content in red wines varies enormously depending on type of grape, soil characteristics, methods of barreling, etc., but averages around only 2.5 mg/L.  The Wine Doctor resveratrol enhanced wine has 100 mL + per 750 mL. Non-drinkers and those seeking protection for a health can obtain resveratrol in our concentrated formula 50mL per day. flavonoids.

Metabolic Effects

Although resveratrol has widely been studied for its potential health benefits, little is known about its metabolic effects in humans. Our aims were to determine whether the polyphenol resveratrol improves insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetic patients and to gain some insight into the mechanism of its action. After an initial general examination (including blood chemistry), nineteen patients enrolled in the 4-week-long double-blind study were randomly assigned into two groups: a resveratrol group receiving oral 2 × 5 mg resveratrol and a control group receiving placebo.

Before and after the second and fourth weeks of the trial, insulin resistance/sensitivity, creatinine-normalised ortho-tyrosine level in urine samples (as a measure of oxidative stress), incretin levels and phosphorylated protein kinase B (pAkt):protein kinase B (Akt) ratio in platelets were assessed and statistically analysed. After the fourth week, resveratrol significantly decreased insulin resistance (homeostasis model of assessment for insulin resistance) and urinary ortho-tyrosine excretion, while it increased the pAkt:Akt ratio in platelets.

On the other hand, it had no effect on parameters that relate to β-cell function (i.e. homeostasis model of assessment of β-cell function). The present study shows for the first time that resveratrol improves insulin sensitivity in humans, which might be due to a resveratrol-induced decrease in oxidative stress that leads to a more efficient insulin signalling via the Akt pathway.

Resveratrol a powerful antioxidant supplement,and is also a useful strategy to curtail inflammatory responses and improve insulin responses.

To receive your daily dose of Resveratrol get The Wine Doctor, R.E.W.  A glass a day, keeps the doctor away!

Resveratrol and how it helps to reduce Aging of the mind

One of the things we are going to discuss in this article is about Resveratrol, and it’s impact on Dementia. Dementia is a multi-factorial disease, linked to aging, environmental impacts and is different in each patient.

The greatest risk factor for neurodegeneration is aging. However, genetics at birth only contributes 20–25% to the determinants of lifespan, so we have around 75% control over how well individuals age in body and brain. Health is the real wealth and that everyone can significantly control/achieve sustainable health and quality of life through lifestyle choices needs to be better promoted.

Dementia is predominantly a disease of aging with millions of people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and in recent years little has happened to change and improve the cognitive functions of elderly people

Can diet help?

Diet has a dynamic molecular impact on human health. The nature and quantity of dietary intake profoundly influences cellular functions, epigenetic alterations and mechanisms that control gene expression.

To sustain healthy aging requires dietary restraint, a reduction of the consumption of processed foods and fatty diets, with negative nutritional attributes such as high energy refined sugars, saturated fats, high sodium content and an increasing affinity and tendency to consume those with positive health attributes including nutraceuticals, phytochemicals and micronutrient rich foods.

Polyphenols are found in a wide variety of foodstuffs and beverages and the high intake of fruits, vegetables, herbs and many plant foods is inversely related to the incidence of several degenerative diseases, highlighting the increased consumer attention to the importance of a balanced diet in relation to human health. It has been estimated that a balanced diet may provide around 1 g of polyphenols daily.

The increase intake of flavonoids and polyphenols especially resveratrol is a dietary preventative strategy to (a) reduce β-amyloid formation and (b) competitively prevent β-amyloid misfolding and toxicity against development of AD.

The most studied polyphenol is Resveratrol. So what is Resveratrol and what does it do?

Studies have shown Protective effects using resveratrol on aging-induced cognitive impairment in rats.

A neurobehavioral study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of resveratrol on cognitive impairment induced by aging in passive avoidance and Morris water maze (MWM) tests. Male Wistar albino rats were divided into four groups: young control (4 month), young resveratrol (4 month + RESV), old control (24 month) and old resveratrol (24 month + RESV). Resveratrol (50 mg/kg/day) was given to the 4 month + RESV and 24 month + RESV groups orally for 12 weeks.

The findings indicate that aging impairs emotional and spatial learning-memory and resveratrol reverses the effect of age-related learning and memory impairment. The results of this study suggest that resveratrol is effective in preventing cognitive deficit in aged rats by inhibiting the production of inflammatory cytokines.

Increase your Resveratrol intake by adding one glass of The Wine Doctor, R.E.W a day will help as an anti-aging resource and Resveratrol helps with the the impact on Dementia.

How Does Resveratrol Reduce Bad Cholesterol?

resveratrol reduces bad cholesterol

There’s exciting evidence that this polyphenol nutrient called Resveratrol can Reduce Bad Cholesterol. In fact, this evidence shows that it can lower your cholesterol even better than drugs.

Resveratrol is a natural polyphenolic compound found in a variety of plants like, buckwheat, legumes and other plants such as grape skins, peanuts, dark berries to name a few.

Studies explored the lipid-lowering effect of resveratrol by treating mice with relatively high doses of resveratrol. In this study however, mice fed with a high fat diet were treated with relatively low doses of resveratrol to observe the effects of resveratrol on their serum and liver lipid levels.

Effects on Cardio-Cerebrovascular System

Modern pharmacological studies have revealed that among the many benefits of Resveratrol is its apparent natural action on the cardio-cerebrovascular system.

But it’s even better than that. This polyphenol, resveratrol not only lowers your cholesterol, but it also lowers your triglycerides. Now that’s impressive! High triglycerides are difficult to lower.

In a new eight-week study, researchers studied the cholesterol levels of hamsters. They divided the animals into two groups. They fed the first group resveratrol. The second group took a drug called fenofibrate, which reduces cholesterol absorption. The hamsters that took resveratrol had significantly reduced serum cholesterol, serum triglycerides, apolipoprotein B (ApoB), Lp(a), and cholesterol ester transport protein. These are significant risk factors for heart disease.

But the news gets better still. Resveratrol also increases Apo A-1 and the Apo A-1/Apo B ratio. Apo A-1 reduces your heart attack risk!

And, if that’s not enough, there’s more.

Additional Health Benefits

Compared to the drug group, the animals that took resveratrol had much less cholesterol and triglycerides in their livers. And it also reduced their genetic expression of the enzyme responsible for making cholesterol. That means the nutrient caused their DNA to direct the liver to set a lower point for cholesterol levels.

Here’s what that means; Rather than taking a drug to inhibit your cholesterol-making enzyme, resveratrol may turn down the amount of the enzyme naturally. That way, you’ll have less cholesterol, but you won’t impair the enzyme, as statins do. The cholesterol-making enzyme is of critical importance in your brain. And, it makes the all-important heart nutrient CoQ10.

The only problem with this study is that it was in animals, not humans. But considering all the great information on resveratrol that we’ve told you about, this fits in quite nicely. Everything we’ve seen resveratrol do in animals has transferred over to humans. So, there’s little reason to doubt its ability to do all this.

Please consider resveratrol long before you consider a petrochemical pharmaceutical for cholesterol. I suggest 100 mg, two to three times daily. Then get your cholesterol level checked after at least eight weeks.

One of the best Resveratrol products in the market place is The Wine Doctor, R.E.W.  A glass a day of The Wine Doctor and a good heart healthy diet, you will be adding many pleasurable years to your life and Reduce Bad Cholesterol.

Learn how the Benefits of Red Wine is good for you

Have you ever heard of the French paradox? It’s a well-researched phenomenon that refers to people who live in certain parts of France where red wine is commonly consumed during meals having fewer cases of death from coronary heart disease, even though these people live a lifestyle that’s considered to have higher risks than those living in other Western societies and developed countries. Studies show that this phenomenon may be due to the many cardioprotective benefits of red wine.

Taking advantage of the health benefits of red wine is not a new practice.  Aside from the knowledge of our ancestors, who used wine to treat ailments and disease, thousands of studies published over the span of several decades have proved that red wine, when consumed in moderation, can have a positive effect on the health of your heart, improve cognitive function, reduce oxidative stress and even normalize blood sugar levels. When consumed in small amounts, red wine can be considered a superfood that provides powerful antioxidants that heal the body at a cellular level, like quercetin and Resveratrol. That’s why the benefits of red wine are so plentiful when you consume it in moderation.

Red wine is probably the best-known source of resveratrol due to the fermentation process that turns grape juice to alcohol. When red wine is produced, grape seeds and skins ferment in the grape’s juices, which has a positive effect on the levels and availability of resveratrol.

People use resveratrol for a number of anti-aging and healing benefits, and research suggests that it can boost your health in the following ways:

  • fight oxidative stress
  • support cellular and tissue health
  • protect against cancer
  • promote circulation
  • protect cognitive health
  • prevent premature aging
  • support healthy digestion
  • improve energy and endurance
  • protect against diabetes

Benefits of red wine for your heart, body and mind can be achieved by consuming 1-2 glasses a day of The Wine Doctor.  Let’s Drink to your health!

Differences between Red Wine and White Wine

red wine vs white wine

Both white wine and red wine are made from grapes, fermented without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients. Different varieties of grapes and strains of yeasts produce different styles of wine.

Though, wine may feel like an indulgence, it has a slew of surprising health benefits that come along with its consumption.

Process

Red wine grapes are fermented with the skin on, which gives the wine its colour and provides beneficial plant compounds. Grapes for white wine, on the other hand, have their skins removed.

Nutrition

In terms of nutrients, red and white wine is neck to neck.  However, red wine has slightly higher levels of some vitamins and minerals. White wine contains fewer calories.

Ingredients

Many different grape varietals are used to produce wine, including Pinot Gris, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.

While red varietals are used to make red wine, white wine can actually be made from red or white grapes.  For instance, traditional French champagne is made with the red Pinot Noir grape.

Health Benefits

There are many health benefits of red wine. Among these, it is known to be good for cardiovascular conditions, regulating cholesterol, slowing down mental decline and can help towards joint pains, diabetes and cancer.

Production

Many countries produce wine. Some of the main wine growing regions are in California in the US, France, Italy, Spain, Chile, South Africa and Australia.

While most regions grow several types of grape varietals, some places are particularly known for one or two.

Final Word

Red wine may be little richer in terms of nutrients; however none of the wines is significantly healthier than the other except for our anti-aging wine.

Drinking The Wine Doctor in moderation on a daily benefit  is the key to gain the utmost benefits. Limiting alcohol consumption is always safe. Enjoy your drink, be it White Wine or Red Wine but especially The Wine Doctor.

Resveratrol is the must have Antioxidant

resveratrol antioxidant

What makes Resveratrol a unique antioxidant among all others is because it can cross the blood-brain barrier to help protect your brain and nervous system, and studies show that its benefits are wide reaching, including:

Because resveratrol appears to be so effective at warding off many diseases associated with aging, it is often referred to a fountain of youth that can extend our lifespan.

The quest for eternal youth may be as old as human life itself, but the latest elixir to promise longer life—a molecule found in red wine—continues to surprise skeptics who can’t believe it could actually work. In the past five years, that compound, resveratrol, has been shown to slow aging in worms, flies, and mice.

Resveratrol has been touted as an anti aging therapy since 2003, when David Sinclair, a Harvard Medical School pathologist and co-author of the current study, found that the life span of yeast could be extended by up to 60 percent when treated with the molecule.

Naturally made in grapes as a reaction to environmental stress (drought, for instance), resveratrol is one of several related chemicals, called polyphenols, that plants produce.
