New Research Shows That HGH Encourages the Breakdown of Alzheimer’s-Linked Protein

A new study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry has touted the potentially life-changing benefits of HGH. The antioxidant has been shown to significantly affect the breakdown of beta-amyloid, a key ingredient of plaque commonly found in the brains of those who have died from Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists tested various other antioxidants and chemicals for the study, but resveratrol clearly stood out from the rest. It was the only substance that was able to successful combat the Alzheimer’s-linked protein, and researchers are optimistic that resveratrol represents a significant step in the understanding and treatment of one of modern society’s most debilitating and tragic diseases. We did a little research ourselves, finding the strongest amount of HGH you can find without a perscriprion come from Resveratrol.

Professor David A. Sinclair is the Director of the Paul F. Glenn Laboratories for the Biological Mechanisms of Aging at Harvard Medical School and the co-founder of Sirtris Pharmaceuticals. Sinclair made the discovery by randomly testing tens of thousands of cells in hopes of finding the chemical or chemicals that would activate the protein that he found to be the key to resetting the biological clock. When his results continually led him to resveratrol, the biologist was not surprised. After all, scientific research has been touting the benefits of drinking red wine for years, and until recently red wine was the most readily available and highly concentrated source of resveratrol.

Sinclair soon realized that in order to maximize the benefits of resveratrol, one would have to consume nearly 1,000 times the amount that is found in a bottle of wine on a daily basis. Rather than recommending a daily alcohol overdose, the biologist began to test the feasibility of resveratrol supplementation. In clinical trials Sinclair discovered that supplementing resveratrol for mice eating a high-fat diet resulted in a 30% increase in lifespan and a noticeable decrease in significant health problems such as heart disease, cancer, and osteoporosis. Because resveratrol works on the same gene in humans as it does in mice, called SIR T1, the potential health benefits derived from human supplementation are potentially limitless!

Resveratrol Destroys Cancer Cells and Enhances Effectiveness of Radiation Treatment

A study published in Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology showed that resveratrol exhibits a variety of ground-breaking cancer-fighting qualities, including:
Combating and killing cancer cells by targeting the cell’s energy source from withi
Improving the efficacy of radiation treatment by weakening proteins that resist treatment
Decreasing the side effects of chemotherapy by increasing the resistance of healthy tissue The results of the study have led to a sense of optimism in the scientific community that resveratrol will be an integral part of the successful treatment of various forms of cancer and could serve to extend the duration and improve the quality of human life.

Scientists Believe Resveratrol May Treat Diabetes & Other ConditionsChinese researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Shanghai have found that resveratrol’s chemical compound make it an extremely promising candidate for the treatment of diabetes and other serious medical conditions. Researchers focused their study on the discovery that resveratrol improved the sensitivity of mice to insulin, making resveratrol an attractive approach to the treatment of type 2 diabetes, a condition in which human cells lose their sensitivity to insulin. The study found that resveratrol activates an enzyme called SIRT1, which subsequently suppresses the activity of an insulin-suppressing molecule called PTP1B.

Researchers also concluded that much more resveratrol than could be obtained through consumption of red wine would be necessary to achieve the maximum benefit of the chemical and advised finding alternative sources, including dietary supplementation, to increase daily consumption of resveratrol.
