Using Resveratrol May Extend Your Life

Resveratrol has been extensively studied and found to have positive effects on everything from cataracts to Alzheimer’s disease.
A recent study has also found that it may have the power to expend your life by mimicking the benefits of dramatic calorie restricts, without the hunger pains.
In this double blind study, researchers gave obese but otherwise healthy men either 150 mg of resveratrol or a placebo for 30 day. The benefits from the resveratrol included reduced blood pressure, triglycerides, inflammation and fatty deposits in the liver.
The researchers described these benefits as a combination of calorie restriction and/or endurance training. Not a bad deal for taking around 150 mg of resveratrol a day.
