If you are a rat that drinks a barrel of red wine per day.


I've found 80mg tabs as low as $0.10/per

An ordinary laboratory mouse will run one kilometer on a treadmill before collapsing from exhaustion. But mice given resveratrol, a minor component of red wine and other foods, run twice as far. They also have energy-charged muscles and a reduced heart rate, just as trained athletes do, according to an article published online in Cell by Johan Auwerx and colleagues at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology in Illkirch, France.

“Resveratrol makes you look like a trained athlete without the training,” Dr. Auwerx (pronounced OH-wer-ix) said in an interview.

He and his colleagues said the same mechanism seemed likely to operate in humans, based on analysis in a group of Finnish subjects of the gene that is influenced by the drug.

Their rationale for testing resveratrol was evidence obtained three years ago that it could initiate a genetic mechanism known to protect mice against the degenerative diseases of aging and prolong their life spans by 30 percent.

Cool. It alters your looks! Like Billy Cristal said, "It is better to look good than to feel good."

Resveratrol:


Everytime I see this word in print (esp if I glance at it quickly), I think that it's misspelled.

"prolong their life spans by 30 percent. "

But that means their SWR takes a big dive downward. I think that means if I take the stuff, I have to go back to work. Oh, the horror...
