There are enzymes in the body called sirtuins (silent information regulator proteins) that act as protection for cells and enhance their survival. These sirtuins have been shown to increase DNA stability and speed cellular repair.
"We think sirtuins buy cells time to repair damage," says molecular biologist David Sinclair, Assistant Professor of Pathology at Harvard Medical School and co-author of the study. It is believed that the self-destruction of cancer cells, a process known as apoptosis, is activated by resveratrol.
Scientists at the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine have found that combined levels of grape polyphenols, like those found in resveratrol supplements, provide much more potent healing power than do isolated compounds, even at much lower doses.
Reziva® brand resveratrol contains trans-resveratrol in combination with real red wine polyphenols - without the alcohol. The intake of one Reziva®capsule daily provides as much resveratrol as 30 glasses of red wine.
