Marketing a resveratrol-based dietary supplement has given me a front-row seat to view how modern medicine obfuscates science and throws in other roadblocks to indefinitely delay public acceptance of a truly miraculous natural molecule.
Examination of events and published studies involving the red wine molecule resveratrol (rez-vair-a-trol) over the past decade reveals nine ways modern medicine has attempted to muddy the science and delay public adoption of this natural molecule as an affordable dietary supplement.

There is one technology challenge that is still beyond the reach of wealthy elite humans — avoidance of death.
Dare they chase the wind in an attempt to capture immortality?
That is what Google co-founder and CEO Larry Page now sets his sights on – an anti-aging pill. However, there are a lot of obstacles intentionally being thrown in the way.
Google’s objective is not new, nor is it far-fetched.

If it is a patentable synthetic molecule that could make research institutions and pharmaceutical companies billions of dollars, it will surely be heralded. But if it is an un-patentable natural molecule that does the same thing at far less cost, it will predictably be dismissed.
That is the current state of affairs when it comes to technology that would limit damage caused by a heart attack.
Researchers at Yale University report their MIF20 small molecule reduced damage to heart muscle by ~40% in an experimental animal model. The Yale researchers report their findings here.
These Yale researchers “Suggest that augmentation of endogenous MIF signal transduction via pharmacological activation” to address “susceptibility to ischemic (heart) tissue damage.”

While many Americans mistakenly believe they will not live as long others in their age group, Americans are more likely to live two to three decades beyond the typical date of retirement (age 65) even without the aid of predicted new advances in medical technology intended to slow the rate of aging.
About 46 percent of pre-retirees think they will not live as long as the average person their age and gender, according to the recently published Society of Actuaries’ Retirement Risk Survey that compared respondents’ estimates of personal life expectancy to those of the population as a whole.
But strikingly, according to the above report, approximately half the population will live longer than their average life expectancy.

Friday, August 9, 2013: Bill Sardi interviews Emmy-Award Winning Journalist George Knapp On KLAV-Radio
Tune in Friday at 9:00 AM Pacific Time, via the internet (also archived for later listening), or locally in Las Vegas at 1230AM on the radio dial, for a scintillating interview with the reporter who took on Big Pharma and brought public attention to Longevinex®.
Managing a dietary supplement company as I do, I have been in a unique position to launch, for the first-time, an effort to circumnavigate the Food & Drug Administration’s onerous grip over dietary supplements.

San Dimas, CA (July 28, 2012) – Researchers report calorie-restricted diets and red wine resveratrol (rez-vair-ah-trol) pills beneficially alter the same array of genes in both healthy and unhealthy individuals but may only produce measurable physiologic improvement in inflammation, blood pressure, blood sugar, insulin sensitivity and weight among individuals with metabolic problems (diabetes, obesity).
Healthy adults taking resveratrol pills aren’t wasting their money buying resveratrol pills as researchers surmise this favorable activation of genes will produce future health benefits via “metabolic re-programming effects.” Researchers are calling for long-term studies to validate their theory.
Because long-term calorie restricted diets progressively alter more and more genes (831 in laboratory mice) over a lifetime, it is assumed healthy adults who habitually take resveratrol pills will progressively activate more genes over time and derive unparalleled health benefits similar to those observed among laboratory mice on life-long calorie restricted diets. Calorie restriction doubles the lifespan and improves the health span of most animal species.

Researchers at the University of Copenhagen say they take my allegations of maligned science very seriously. They weakly defend their preposterous claim that resveratrol produces a significant reversal of the effects of physical exercise. Here is my response to their email:
To: Mr. Gliemann (student, PhD candidate):
Maybe you have learned to fool yourself with your own numbers.
At no time did resveratrol meaningfully (but maybe, just barely, statistically) negate the effects of exercise.

Las Vegas, NV (July 22, 2013) – Well, the above headline is not the one you are reading in today’s news.
What you are reading is:
“Red wine blunts benefits of exercise in men” -The Indian Express
“Too Many Antioxidants? Resveratrol blocks many cardiovascular benefits of exercise” -Science Daily
“Glass of red could undo the effects of exercising” (Express UK)
“La ‘píldora de la eterna juventud’ es cuestionada (the pill of eternal youth is questioned) (La Nacion Costa Rica)
A bevy of prior studies conducted in mice came to contrary conclusions. Mice on treadmills improved their endurance and stamina and many measurable parameters of health improved as well. But moving from mice to men is another thing. So why the disparity between studies with laboratory mice under controlled dietary and environmental conditions and senior (human) males in a placebo-compared trial?

“Molecular biologists are taking backward steps in calling for scientific studies that have already taken place. They are asking for scientific ground to be covered that has already been covered.”
Those are the terse words of Bill Sardi, managing partner for LONGEVINEX®, the world’s best tested resveratrol pill, in sharply written responses to recently published scientific reports calling for further study of red wine resveratrol pills.
“Molecular biologists are calling for research to be conducted with resveratrol pills that represent two steps backwards. Specifically they are calling for advanced encapsulation technology and studies comparing resveratrol to a calorie restricted diet, both which have already been achieved by Longevinex®, Sardi emphasizes.

Good News For Men- Resveratrol Restores Erectile Dysfunction In Diabetic Lab Rats.
The patents on Viagra just recently expired and prices are falling for generic Viagra, but a recent study suggests the red wine molecule resveratrol (rez-vair-ah-trol), taken at a dose of 5 milligrams per kilogram (2.2 lbs) of body weight (equivalent to ~350 mg for a 160-lb adult male), restores erectile function among diabetic animals. Lower doses probably work as well. Mega-dose resveratrol may be problematic.
Erectile dysfunction plagues males with elevated blood sugar levels. Erectile dysfunction is estimated to affect between 35% and 75% of diabetic males, which is three times higher than the incidence in non-diabetic men. ©2013 Bill Sardi, ResveratrolNews.com
