  1. resveratrol or TRANS-resveratrol


    Which is the better form to take? I see both used equally in products.


  2. the trans-isomer is the extract that you are looking for. The higher the percentage the better. The bioavailbility of non-extracted japenese knotweed (resveratrol) is very very poor.

  3. Ok, so this isn't great?

    Stoked would be better, right? This is for my wife and possible cancer; would the icariin in Stoked be ok, or interfere in any way?

  4. I cannot speak on icariin because I don't have much knowledge on it. However, maybe someone else can chime in. As far as the resveratrol aspect, the stoked is a higher quality and better value if you break it down to price per mg of active. You may also want to look into the new IBE product coming out triacetyl resveratrol.

  5. You want trans, also I dont see what all the "whoo ha" is about, I dont see logs of people getting all this aggression and training intensity and on and on from resveratrol products.

    I think people are more interested in resveratrol for the anti-oxidant properties, and the studies that have shown it may have potential in preventing many age-related diseases (diabetes, alzheimers, etc.). I don't think people are expecting to get huge of Resveratrol

    Bodybuilding is a large part being "in tune" with your body and leading a healthy lifestyle, and this may be one means to that end.

    Well you can use an extract standarized for resveratrol (total).

  9. So total resveratrol, instead of trans?

    The bioavailablity of trans is already weak enough, resveratrol must be close to helpless.

  11. So is it not worth taking?

  12. I wonder if there would be benefit from a pain-free oral?

    First step is to see a doctor. Debating the benefits of a resveratrol product should not even be at the forefront of your mind.

    It is absurd to think that any supplement is going to alter the course of an unknown neoplasm in the neck.

    cheers.

  14. Also, how well would it work in a transdermal? Either for anti-aging or used for test therapy?

  15. Many people report great success with primordial performances line of transdermals that are resveratrol based.

    dep. on what your using it for, if you using it for some antioxidant effect, anti cancer type effects you can go with total. Total res. has 4 res. isomers, the other extracts standardized for trans. has all 4 isomers also, just the trans res. is quantified.

    Good thing I agree, then, huh? Otherwise I'd be a total retard, right?

    Her biopsy is on the 9th. Until then, I'm doing research. Nifty, huh?

    Very good, thanks, Chuck.

    I think that seeking a supplement with anti-neoplastic properties for a neoplasm that you do not even know IS a true neoplasm or cancer for that matter is somewhat along the lines of "retarded".

    No research has been done to the extent that would implicate complete confidence in TRUE anti-cancer properties of ANY of the aforementioned supplements in human use.

    You may as well consider overall caloric/dietary restriction as anti-cancer it has been MUCH further studied in cancer rather than resveratrol.

    Heck, even a good support network has been shown to help with cancer so you may even consider powering down the computer and simply giving her a hug rather than cellulose wrapped resveratrol.

    cheers.

    I'm looking at every option. At this point, we don't know, but we will soon. Until then, call it MY therapy, or way of dealing. OK?

    There's no such thing as 'complete confidence'. I certainly wouldn't use ANY 'researched' cancer treatment proposed by an MD with 'complete confidence': it may or may not stop the cancer, andit may or may not have long term health effects.

    Who says I'm not? It was brought up in my original thread a month ago.

    You're a ****. Get out of my thread.

    i wouldn't buy anything from that shady outfit, period!

    You're a ****. Get out of my thread.
    I won't even begin to relay pertinent information regarding anti-cancer therapies that have been proven in 100's of peer reviewed journals and clinical trials.

    A simple example that you may or may not understand is the role of anti-estrogen therapy in estrogen receptor positive breast cancer. For a hematologist oncologist to say that he or she is not completely confident in treating a biospy proven ER+ Her2/Neu - PR+ breast cancer with an anti Estrogen is absurd.

    Who cares about the long term health benefits of chemo if it eradicates the cancer - which is most likely to shorten the lifespan significantly. Ask John Lester if he though twice about the possible long term effects of his chemotherapy.

    You're incorrect, I'm not a ****, rather an MD who has dedicated a larger portion of his life dedicated to researching and treating cancer.

    The thread is not yours, rather it is a public forum and belongs to every member. For the most part, positive contributions are accepted widely on this forum.

    cheers.

    I haven't seen one from you yet, in this thread. Feel free.

    Im not asking for advice on treating cancer here. This is the wrong forum, clearly(despite your illustrious presence). This thread was not specifically about that, but about two different forms of resveratrol, and which is more beneficial.

    If you have advice about natural cancer treatments, or other avenues to persue while the doctors do their thing, I'd love to hear it. But don't assume you know who I am, how we're approaching her growth, or anything else about me or what I do.

    Oh, and lose the arrogance. It stinks, and won't make you a better doctor.

  24. A little story for you, Deerdeer.

    My wife has the lump. Saw her doctor (a respected UCLA doctor). Had an MRI, just to see. After the MRI, they said results would take several days. She came home, and the same day, several hours later, her dr called and said to get into her office ASAP, she was bumping people to see her. Obviously, this was worrisome. We packed up the kids, and I dropped her off. She was there an hour; when she came out, she wouldn't look at me, asked to go to the pharmacy to fill a prescription.

    We got home, and she told me: she walked into the office, the dr sat her down, and said 'Your cancer is back', and handed her a box of kleenex. Literally. Then proceeded to be so negative, IE 'I'd be very worried', etc, that my wife was upset, at which point she handed her a prescription for Xanax.

    She referred her to a specialist. She had a full body MRI, then saw him. He said' I'll cut to the chase; your doctor, and the MRI tech are both known to over-read these things, I can name at least two dozen other people who've been through this. I don't think it IS cancer, but let's find out...'



    What's this got to do with you, deerdeer? Nothing, of course, except that you seem to share the same ****ty attitude and superiority complex my wife's doctor has.
