(NaturalHealth365) A recent study shows resveratrol improves cognitive performance. Though resveratrol does not receive considerable attention from the mainstream media, it is becoming increasingly clear that it provides several benefits for human health.
What’s behind resveratrol’s brain-protective effects?
Study shows resveratrol has anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties
Though resveratrol is a relatively unknown compound, it is quite beneficial. Resveratrol can significantly affect several responses, both inflammatory and non-inflammatory, safeguarding the body’s tissues and organs. Resveratrol’s protective qualities result from its interactions with immune cells and activity on the protein called Sirtuin 1 or SIRT1 for short. SIRT1 is an important protein linked to metabolic and inflammatory stressors.
In terms of resveratrol’s anti-aging impact, the compound has been shown to mitigate the aging process. The mediation of anti-aging effects occurs with pathway alterations. Resveratrol binds to molecules that signal to cells, trigger transcription factors, deter protein kinases and modulate certain regulatory genes. In other words, resveratrol is essential in the quest for slowing the aging process, especially in preventing the development of diseases.
