A while back, I wrote about an amazing, facial serum that’s loaded with Resveratrol- the powerful, anti-aging compound found in red wine. Since then, I’ve officially become obsessed with Resveratrol. (It’s kind of like my Jonas Brothers.)
In a recent study at Harvard, mice, who were given Resveratrol, lived 30% longer and were able to run twice as far on a treadmill. (They think Resveratrol sends cells into maintenance mode, instead of growing mode, thus slowing the aging process.) Whaaaat?
According to the National Cancer Institute, there is also evidence that Resveratrol helps to prevent cancer.
And it’s believed that it’s also responsible for the “French Paradox”. The fact that the French smoke, eat fatty foods and have so much disdain (that was my addition), yet have such a low rate of coronary disease.
This 80 yr old French clergyman drinks 2 glasses of red wine a day.
He says people tell him he doesn’t look a day over 60.
There are three flavors. All of which taste really good. Kind of like a light, more sophisticated grape juice.
Thus my “Bottle of Embodi a day, anti-aging adventure”TM begins. I’ll let you know how it goes? Just a warning: by my next post, I might only be using one syllable words and talking a lot about ponies and unicorns.
and pencils in them? Oh, my God. It’s working already.
