There has been a lot of hype in recent years about resveratrol because of its claimed benefits in longevity, action on sirtuins and increase in endurance in some cases. However, it is also docuemented that this compund possess estrogenic activity. What is your position on supplementing resveratrol?

It acts as an antioxidant, antimutagenic and antiinflammatory (lowers COX-2). It elevates cAMP, decreases platelet aggregation, and decreases levels and inhibits oxidation of LDL cholesterol. Research shows it to be a powerful phytoestrogen that can help maintain normal estrogen activity, reduce hot flashes, balance mood swings, & promote bone density for women with PMS or menopausal symptoms. It promotes cardiovascular health, and helps prevent premature aging for both sexes. A recent in vitro study with human cells showed it was 99.9% effective halting reproduction of herpes, shingles, & other viruses; and inhibited growth of cancer cells. Only 4mg of the extract 2 times per day is equal to the resveratrol in 2 liters of wine! Recently in the news for lengthening maximum life-span in yeast & flies, research suggests 20mg per day of resveratrol may be able to promote longevity by stimulating the human cell-survival enzyme known to increase through restricting caloric intake.
