IS THIS SUPPLEMENT REALLY THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH?
I am, without question, a “lifestyle doctor.” My passion and understanding is what is normal physiology, and how do we get there using diet, exercise and targeted supplementation. The holy grail of longevity is protecting the mitochondria (regardless of whether or not you remember these little organelles from high school biology…). One of the most powerful ways to do this is via activation of a family of genes (the SIRT family of genes) through a low calorie, high phytonutrient diet. There is, however, a phytonutrient that also activates the SIRT family of genes. It is resveratrol, the compound found in red wine, red grapes and peanuts. Not that this is designed to REPLACE healthy lifestyles, but can be used as an adjunct to these changes.
