Longevinex (http://www.longevinex.com), maker of the world's first resveratrol dietary supplement proven to activate the Sirtuin 1 DNA-repair gene, has unveiled an online slide show that heralds a newly published ground breaking study showing for the first time that resveratrol reduces mortality in warm-blooded animals. The online slide show is available at http://www.longevinex.com
Scientists have been waiting for this study ever since it was reported in 2003 that resveratrol, known as a red wine molecule, prolongs the life of yeast cells. Since then, resveratrol has been shown to increase the longevity of fruit flies, roundworms and cold-water fish. Now researchers at the National Institutes on Aging report that resveratrol not only significantly reduces mortality in mice but also enhances the quality of life and reverses the formation of fatty deposits in the liver. Aged mice given resveratrol still retained their physical balance and coordination.
Calorie restriction has been shown to prolong the life of many species of life, and resveratrol is considered a molecular mimic of calorie restriction via its ability to activate the Sirtuin 1 DNA repair gene.
Longevinex utilizes Licaps (Capsugel) technology to encapsulate resveratrol in an airtight capsule. The ingredients in Longevinex are never exposed to light, heat or oxygen during manufacture. Independent studies show Longevinex/Licaps capsules retain their labeled resveratrol content, 40 milligrams of trans resveratrol, for up to 2 years without significant degradation.
