Resveratrol Kills Cancer Cells
I was going through my twitter posts and found a post regarding a natural product resveratrol and how it is helping fight prostate cancer. Well, that search took me to the National Cancer Institute website. Once there I googled resveratrol at this site I found this article. There is valuable info for anyone who has cancer and is looking for a way to kill those cancer cells. It is shown that it might help in the fight against cancer, reduce the tumor incidence and is anti-inflammatory.

Pretty Pomegranate Source of Resveratrol
Pomegranates are one of a great source of Resveratrol out there. The anti-aging substance is not found primarily in its juice, though, it is also found also in its skin and seeds. A good way to get these benefits is to get a good pomegranate supplement that concentrates these parts as well as just the juice. One of the drawbacks is that it doesn’t slow all the key mechanisms of aging (Not slowing AGE proteins). Source
Natural News Say This about The Benefits of Pomegranates
Pomegranates effectively lower blood pressure in a manner similar to GSE and resveratrol as the juice and extracts contain powerful polyphenols that counteract oxidative stress. This magical fruit also is found to lower circulating levels of the angiotensin hormone that can help blood vessels to relax. The result of a study published in the journal Atherosclerosis demonstrated that consumption of pomegranate juice (50 ml per day for 2 weeks) lowered ACE activity by 36%, leading to a 5% drop in systolic blood pressure.

And finally this article on the health benefits of Resveratrol and Pomegranates
A previous study from our lab has shown that the polyphenol-rich pomegranate juice can protect the neonatal mouse brain against hypoxic-ischemic (H-I) injury when given to mothers in their drinking water. To test the hypothesis that this protection is due to the polyphenols in the juice, we studied the effects of the pomegranate polyphenol extract in the same neonatal H-I model. To further explore the role of a specific polyphenol in neonatal H-I we investigated the effects of resveratrol. The neuroprotective effects of resveratrol have been demonstrated in adult models of stroke but had not previously been examined in neonates. We show that pomegranate polyphenols and resveratrol reduce caspase-3 activation following neonatal H-I. Resveratrol reduced caspase-3 activation when given before the injury but not when given 3 h after the injury. In addition to preventing caspase-3 activation, resveratrol also reduced calpain activation. Finally, we show that resveratrol can protect against tissue loss measured at 7 days after the injury. These and other recent findings suggest that polyphenols should be further investigated as a potential treatment to decrease brain injury due to neonatal H-I.
