Resveratrol and You
From interview aired January 25, 2009 on 60 Minutes between Dr. Christoph Westphal and Dr. David Sinclair with correspondent Morley Safer.
"Red wine is brimming with Resveratrol. It is found in high concentrations in the skin of the grape, and seems to play a role in protecting it from invading bacteria and fungi.
Sinclair says he was aware of research into red wine and certain health benefits. "I mean, that's why I almost fell off my chair when the link was made. And I thought that this was a potential explanation for the benefits of red wine."
Convinced they were on the verge of a major scientific breakthrough, Sinclair and Westphal launched Sirtris, a Cambridge, Mass. research company. They, along with a handful of other cutting-edge biotech companies, are developing resveratrol-based drugs that they believe zero-in on the longevity gene.
"The important news here is not that we'd found something in red wine. The important thing is that we passed a milestone where we can now make drugs based on this knowledge and we can potentially slow down aging itself," Sinclair explains."
Resveratrol and Shaklee's new Resveratrol based Vivix Cellular Anti-Aging Tonic is here now and is a natural supplement with 10x's the power of Resveratrol alone.
