What role does resveratrol play in the health benefits provided by grapes?

It looks like if you if you want to feel better and maybe even live longer, eating more grapes might be the answer for you. There are some genes inside of you that get helped with the more grapes that you do eat. The less calories that you put in your body, the better overall.

    Key Takeaways:

  • Several grape phytonutrients are now believed to play a role in longevity.
  • Resveratrol has recently been shown to increase expression of three genes all related to longevity. (These three genes are SirT1s, Fox0s, and PBEFs.)
  • Interestingly, some researchers have shown a parallel between activation of these longevity genes by resveratrol and activation by calorie-restricted diets.
