Lower the chance of stroke, with resveratrol?
Can Resveratrol lower the chance of stroke?
In the conference at the Society for Neuroscience in Atlanta, a new study was unveiled regarding resveratrol. It revealed that resveratrol considerably lowered the chance of stroke. This study showed that resveratrol directly protects against stroke and impacts brain functions. It is also in line with past research findings establishing resveratrol as a large factor in helping the brain control and regulate blood sugar. 
Scientists found that resveratrol led to increased levels of heme oxygen which is an enzyme that protects against brain cell damage. Through this enzymes' ability to protect against free radical damage, resveratrol triggers the process that lowers the risk of stroke. 
The mice in the study where given moderate doses of resveratrol, then provided stroke like damage to their brains. The mice pretreated with resveratrol where vastly protected from brain damage. The scientists found 40% less damage in mice that took resveratrol, than those provided a regular diet.
The findings point out another powerful reason why many consider resveratrol a staple in their diet. The chemical found in red grapes, peanuts and chocolate. While there have been many studies providing multiple benefits of resveratrol, most studies dissolve resveratrol in ethanol to micronize it and increase it's absorption before using it in the study. Resveratrol's general benefits are thought to provide longevity, high energy levels and protection against various cardiovascular and degenerative diseases. 
It's multiple potential benefits shown in lab studies range from treating the symptoms of menopause without any side effects of HRT, it's potency at reducing the influenza virus efficacy, It's ability to make HIV sensitive to drugs and enhancing the vulnerability of pancreatic cancer cells for chemotherapy.
While many studies use daily doses of resveratrol which is found in about 20 kilograms of peanuts, most people could likely benefit from supplements available on the market, such as the micronized resveratrol capsules.
The supplements ensure accurate dose amounts, easy storage, and convenient packaging that matches your busy lifestyle. They help ensure that you can always have easy access to micronized resveratrol.
