In laboratory tests, resveratrol has been shown to have anti-aging, antioxidant and anti-coagulant properties - which means it helps keep the arteries from clogging.
Wilmington, NC (Vocus) July 30, 2009
Toast your good health! The American Heart Association has recently recognized the heart-healthy benefits of red wine. In fact, it now recommends drinking one glass per day for adult women and two glasses per day for adult men. Dr. David Friedman, health expert on Lifetime Television's popular morning show, "The Balancing Act", recently described what makes red wine so special.
"Actually it's not the alcohol that creates the health benefits. It's an ingredient in the red grapes called 'resveratrol'," said Friedman on the show. "In laboratory tests, resveratrol has been shown to have anti-aging, antioxidant and anti-coagulant properties - which means it helps keep the arteries from clogging."
Scientists first became interested in exploring the potential health benefits of resveratrol when its presence was reported in red wine, leading to speculation that it might help explain the "French Paradox": the French have a relatively lower mortality rate and lower incidence of coronary disease, despite a diet generally high in saturated fat. Their consumption of red wine containing resveratrol is considered by many in the scientific community to be the reason for their longevity and good health.
Resveratrol is a naturally occurring compound produced in plants and grapes, found primarily in the skin and seeds. Recognizing its many potential health benefits, Friedman chose to include this powerful ingredient in the dietary supplement he formulated, Chews-4-Health.
Chews-4-Health contains 16 ingredients, including a mix of four antioxidants -- resveratrol, Vitamin B-12, Folic acid and Alpha Lipoic acid. It is the world's first super fruit, sea vegetable antioxidant chewable dietary supplement.
Friedman is a renowned chiropractic physician and doctor of naturopathy, author of three books and creator of the best-selling CD, "America's Unbalanced Diet." The product he formulated is a delicious, natural, chewable dietary supplement derived from 16 of the world's most nutrient-rich sources from land and sea.
