  • When “Finally Put To The Test” NutritionFacts.Org Says Resveratrol Pills Fail. We know better.

    May 24, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    If a newly published report is correct, that resveratrol (rez-vair-a-trol) dietary supplements are based upon on thread-thin if not altogether bogus science, I ought to be confessing I’m a charlatan and snake oil salesman and resign from my self-appointed position as defender of res-pills and editor at ResveratrolNews.com

    The latest knife that has been thrown at resveratrol comes from a doctor-run website that claims it is an authoritative non-commercial source of information on topics like resveratrol.   The NutritionFacts.org website accepts no advertising and has no hidden sponsors.  There is no product line of dietary supplements that are being sold covertly at “SnakeOilWondersupplements.com.”  We are all pleased to hear that.

    Anyone who has commercial interest in resveratrol pills, like myself, is biased I guess.  Yes, after living 73 years without any evident disease or need for medication, without a hint of a cloudy cataract or cholesterol (drusen) deposits at the back of my eyes that are apparent in 91% of adults my age, I guess I am biased.

  • Resveratrol Improves All Measures Of Cardiovascular Health Even When Instituted Months After A Stroke

    May 11, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    The use of 100 milligrams of supplemental resveratrol (rez-vair-a-trol) among post-stroke patients (average age 65) improves all measures of health compared to standard medical treatment including body mass index, blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c, a measure of long-term blood sugar control.

    In some patients resveratrol was instituted months after the occurrence of a stroke but still produced a positive result.  No strokes reoccurred during the study period in any group (control group/standard medical treatment or resveratrol group).

  • Telomerase: Research To Nowhere?

    May 2, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    It is true that laboratory mice engineered to lack telomerase, an enzyme that facilitates lengthening of end-caps (telomeres) on chromosomes (bundles of DNA), became prematurely decrepit.   But can human aging be slowed by elevation of telomerase activity?  Probably not, because the decrepit mice were not normal mice.  These animals were “grossly abnormal” and genetically engineered to age prematurely.  What has been demonstrated in the laboratory may not apply to humans.

    But research that is headed nowhere continues.  No telomere anti-aging drugs have been developed.  But researchers will do anything to get another research grant.  So yet another report that speculates telomerase is the fountain of youth was recently published and made headlines news.

  • Moonshot Medicine: Who Can Afford It?

    April 19, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    The medical research community now talks of moonshots (big leap-forward cures), regenerative medicine, precision individualized medicine, even one-time complete treatment cures. It is all part of the 21st Century Cures Act, which spreads $4.8 billion of research funding in an attempt to accelerate the development and approval of real cures. But will this Herculean effort bankrupt insurance pools?

    The money is being directed toward expensive pharmacological cures that will further burst the Medicare Trust fund. Gobs of federal money are going towards innovations, like CRISPR gene therapy, that intends to completely remedy single-gene mutation diseases like cystic fibrosis, sickle cell, Huntington’s disease, and muscular dystrophy, all cured in a single treatment. But at what cost?

  • First Genetically Modified Humans; But Maybe Try Resveratrol First

    : by Bill Sardi


    Modern medicine likes to pull off hoaxes, like the great cholesterol hoax that is still in play after four decades. It likes to produce expensive cures on deliver them on its own terms. Inexpensive remedies are shunned, go untested, are said to be unproven (but not disproven), and are peddled by hucksters.

    Now that you have that straightened out in your mind, you will love/loathe to hear that humans are about to be genetically edited. No, this is not an attempt to build a super-race of humans. But it is, well, a bit of an expensive scientific high-wire act that will be used to “cure” a blood disorder.

  • Resveratrol: The Biological Rhythm Reset Button

    April 16, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    Day / Night Cycle

    The human body and all living creatures for that matter have a biological clock entranced and synchronized by day and night (light and dark) cycles, what is called the 24-hour circadian rhythm.  As humans age their inability to maintain synchronous sleep/wake cycles shortens lifespan.  It is no surprise then to learn that with advancing age those individuals who retain uninterrupted nighttime sleep cycles tend to live longer.

    Likewise, exposure of animals to artificially short or long light/dark cycles shortens their lifespan.

  • All Roads To Longevity Linked To NAD

    April 13, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    Over a decade ago genetic researchers claimed niacin (vitamin B3), being ubiquitously found in food, serves as a “found-food signal” while resveratrol, a red wine molecule, serves to produce a “food deprivation” signal that mimics a calorie restricted diet.  We were told resveratrol activates the Sirtuin1 survival gene whereas niacin shuts it off.  However, we are now told the niacin derivative NAD boosts Sirtuin1 gene protein levels.

    Fast forward to today.  The target of life-prolonging calorie-restricted diets is NAD –nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide.   Resveratrol is now considered passé.  Niacin derivatives are posed as “beyond resveratrol” pills.   This is despite the fact resveratrol is probably a more powerful NAD booster.

  • Resveratrol Prevents “Chemobrain,” Extends Life Of Stored Blood Cells, Fosters Growth Of Beneficial Gut Bacteria

    March 27, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    Abolishes chemobrain

    Resveratrol continues to astound.  Now if modern medicine would only take it out of the research closet and make it applied medicine.

    Chemobrain is a symptom reported by many cancer patients with difficulty processing information.  Symptoms of chemobrain include fatigue, confusion, mental fogginess, short attention span, short-term memory problems, recall and memory, difficulty concentrating.  In an animal model of chemobrain, laboratory mice received injections of three cancer drugs, taxotere (docetaxel), doxorubicin (Adriamycin), cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan), preceded by one week of resveratrol treatment.  Resveratrol resulted in far less brain inflammation and other interference of brain activity.  According to the Mayo Clinic, no cure for chemobrain is at hand.

  • A Corner In Aging Has Been Turned; Population Reductions In Biological Age Now Being Reported

    March 20, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    As expressed in a recent published report entitled “Past, Present, and Future of Healthy Life Expectancy,” it has become apparent the current “disease model” paradigm in healthcare may have to be abandoned and replaced by a “delayed aging” approach because of the large number of chronic comorbidities inflicting older people.

    Caring for millions of senior Americans with chronic brain, eye and heart disease would be so overwhelming as to drain insurance pools as well as incapacitate society.  Given that most chronic disease among senior adults is caused by aging, any technology that slows aging would delay the onset of physically or mentally debilitating diseases.

  • Is Cancer Caused By Unbalanced Chromosomes Rather Than Gene Mutations?

    March 9, 2018: by Bill Sardi


    What causes cancer? Or more important, what un-causes cancer?

    In widespread circulation on the worldwide web today (March 7) is investigative reporter Jon Rappoport’s coverage of the work of cancer researcher David Rasnick PhD. Rasnick proposes cancer does not emanate from accumulated gene mutations as commonly believed but rather from unbalanced chromosomes. Dr. Rasnick attempts to raise funds to complete his book on this topic (Precarious Balance: What Cancer Really is)
