Resveratrol Shown to Reduce Deadly Brain Plaque of Alzheimer’s by 90%

Resveratrol is natural phenol or type of antioxidant found in red grapes, red wine. Research has shown beneficial effects as anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory agents along with supporting healthy blood sugar and cardiovasculature function. It has received considerable attention for its anti-aging properties involving the activation of the SIRT1 gene. Another aspect of Resveratrol function is to activate the production of friendly nitric oxide in your brain. Nitric Oxide is known to cause vasodilation throughout the circulatory system and in turn increasing blood flow and vital oxygen to all parts of the body, such as the brain. This offers a way to prevent the cascade of free radical damage that leads to plaque formation within the brain which leads to Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).

This friendly nitric oxide is called eNOS (endothelial nitric oxide). When eNOS production is disrupted, problems with blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar are much more common. These problems induce further depression of eNOS causing a vicious catch 22. In essence, free radical production jumps into high gear and can start making the most damaging of all free radicals, peroxynitrite. This is a short-lived oxidant species that is a potent inducer of cell death.

Resveratrol has now been found to activate the enzyme that helps make friendly eNOS, thereby breaking the catch 22. Interestingly, other researchers have just shown that the formation of Alzheiner’s actually depresses eNOS, in turn leading to more plaque. In an animal study, researchers show that Resveratrol significantly inhibits plaque formation in animals genetically altered to develop Alzheimer’s (up to 90% reduction in plaque formation).

This new information suggests that Resveratrol—along with blueberries and grape seed extract known as OPC-3—is another potent nutrient to add to the expanding list of nutrients that help to protect and preserve healthy brain function by increasing oxygen as well as reducing deadly brain plaques.

The type of Resveratrol that has the greatest absorption rate is in an Isotonic Solution. This type of delivery process, of an Isotonic solution, will deliver 95% absorption versus the typical 20-25% of a tablet or capsule. After 25+ years of studying antioxidants, I have found the strongest formulation of Resveratrol which can be found by going to http://www.nutrametrix.com/drbarry  which is what I recommend for my patients. Simply type in Resveratrol  in the search field to read more on this product.
