ISORHAPONTIGENIN, A NEW RESVERATROL ANALOG, ATTENUATES CARDIAC HYPERTROPHY
My friends think I’m nuts, but I really am starting to believe that oxidative stress and subsequent mitochondrial dysfunction is darn close to the root of all evil. Here we see the link to enlargement of the heart and how this event is protected against by a synthetic version of resveratrol. Resveratrol is the compounds found in red wine, grapes and peanuts that is known to protect the heart.
My question is, we already know that resveratrol protects the heart–why are we looking for a synthetic version? Can you say patent…?
