Resveratrol, Liver PF, Supernutrition

February 2007 - Print | Index

The world of anti-oxidants continues to bloom, with new research helping to guide our nutritional choices and demonstrating their extreme importance in living a long, healthy life.

One anti-oxidant that is currently receiving more scrutiny is resveratrol. It is a flavonoid or polyphenol classified as a phytoestrogen that acts as an antifungal agent in grapes. Biologically, it acts as an antioxidant, antimutagen, anti-inflammatory and neuro-protector. Most importantly, studies involving resveratrol use in rats dramatically increased both their endurance and longevity.

Studies indicate resveratrol helps stop the formation of blood clots, prevents cholesterol from blocking arteries, and may reduce the risk of leukemia and some forms of cancer. It also shows promise as a compound to protect against certain classes of environmental toxins, fungal and bacterial attacks, and as an aid in the prevention of noise-induced hearing loss.

The most abundant source of resveratrol is Japanese Knotweed, also known as Chinese Tiger Cane (Hu Zhang). It is also found in less potent doses in red wines -- especially muscadine table wines, where fermentation increases its abundance -- and boiled peanuts.

We currently carry two resveratrol products from Jarrow Formulas. The first is pure Resveratrol in a 100mg vegetarian capsule, one of the highest dosages in the industry. The other is called Resveratrol Synergy™ that blends resveratrol with other anti-oxidant nutrients. Regularly $19.95, it's currently on sale for $16.95.

More Jarrow Specials

Q-absorb CoQ10 100mg: Q-absorb™ is a proliposome lipid soluble delivery system clinically shown in humans to increase Co-Q10 levels up to 400% (3.2x) over baseline and is 3-4 times better absorbed than chewable Co-Q10 tablets. Co-Q10 supports heart function as a component of the electron transport system, and as an antioxidant protects mitochondrial membranes and cholesterol from oxidation. Regularly $55.95, it's now on sale for $47.55. Available in a 120 Softgel size.

Liver PF™ combines herbs and other nutrients known to support the liver's detoxification functions. It is especially directed toward the Phase 2 enzymes which remove toxins in the liver. Artichoke and milk thistle extracts have been shown to protect liver glutathione levels and to enhance the synthesis and release of bile, an action important for the elimination of toxins from the body. PicroMax™ contains the compound kutkin that, like silymarin in milk thistle, supports the liver's regenerative ability, most likely through a stimulation of protein and nucleic acid synthesis. Pantethine activates alcohol metabolizing enzymes and is a co-factor in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Alpha lipoic acid is an important antioxidant in its own right that also helps the liver regenerate glutathione. N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) serves as a precursor to glutathione. Uridine is important in the biosynthesis of DNA and in the preservation and transfer of genetic information. Regularly $29.95, now only $25.45. Available in a 90 Softgel size.
