Solgar PC-Extend Polygonum Cuspidatum Supplying Resveratrol
PC-Extend (Polygonum cuspidatum) Vegetable Capsules, supplying resveratrol, is one of Solgar's premium-quality antioxidants. Resveratrol might be a key ingredient in red wine that helps prevent damage to blood vessels, reduces "bad" cholesterol and prevents blood clots. Some research shows that resveratrol could be linked to a reduced risk of inflammation and blood clotting, both of which can lead to heart disease. More research is needed before it's known whether resveratrol was the cause for the reduced risk.
- supports healthy biomarkers
- improves quality of life
Scientists have long been puzzled by the “French paradox” – the surprising fact that the Frencheat more fatty foods than the American people, yet have better cardiovascular health. About adecade ago, researchers honed in on the French’s affinity for red wine as a possible explanation.New research shows that one particular ingredient in red wine – called resveratrol – may be atleast partially responsible for red wine’s beneficial effect. First isolated in grape skins, resveratrolalso occurs in peanuts and some herbs, including the herb Polygonum cuspidatum.
In recent years, the scientific anti-aging community discovered a family of genes in mammalscalled SIR (in lower animals) or SIRT (in mammals) encoding for proteins called sirtuins. Theseproteins were shown to improve quality of life under conditions of caloric restriction. Sincesevere caloric restriction is not a sustainable or ideal practice for humans, researchers begansearching for natural products that could turn on SIRT genes. They discovered that resveratrolcould mimic the positive effects of caloric restriction. Additional studies showed that even withhigh-calorie diets, resveratrol turned on SIRT genes, which supported healthy biomarkers such asincreased insulin sensitivity and balanced blood sugar that are usually compromised with highcaloriediets. While research in humans is ongoing, incoming data shows great promise.Previous studies have shown resveratrol is also cardioprotective.
