Turn on this gene, and it may be possible to eat what you want and live a long healthy life free from disease.

Has science found the Fountain of Youth... You will have to be the judge, but I am not waiting, and neither are other scientists and researchers. We are acting NOW!!!

Glaxo Smith Kline, a very large pharmaceutical company recently bought Sirtris Pharmaceuticals for $720 million, or $22.50 a share. Why should I care you ask? Well, Sirtris is a biopharmaceutical company that's developing drugs to target a class of enzymes called sirtuins. Its SIRT-501, which is in early-stage development, is an enhanced formulation of resveratrol (the healthful agent found in red wine) that targets one of those enzymes, SIRT1. Why were they bought? Because what they discovered may be the closest thing to the fountain of youth ever found and explains why the french could eat a diet high in fats associated with heart disease and yet show amazing resistance to it. I am not waiting for their drug and neither are the scientists that discovered this compound. I am taking the natural form of resveratrol that is available in concentrated form right now, and in a form that I feel will always be superior to any drug they will patent.
Sirtris feels they have found the possible cure for diseases that are associated with aging... diseases like cardiovascular disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's, obesity and osteoporosis.

Watch this video to see why they are excited and you will understand why they were bought out for so much money this year.

The average life span of Americans is about 78 years. Some people live much longer and don't seem to do it with any special help from diet. Is it possible that they have a gene turned on that promotes longevity, while some of us don't? It makes sense and I believe as do the scientists that created Sirtris, that we can turn this longevity gene on with daily supplementation of resveratrol.

The current research is very overwhelming. While I respect the work of these scientists to bring this compound to market as a drug, I do not think it is the best approach. Why make it a drug? If they isolate the exact molecule, they can patent it and have exclusive rights to the drug at very high prices for at least 6 years. The natural compound that I take is already available, but cannot be patented. It also has other phytonutrients that many biochemists feel are equally needed for achieving the anti-aging benefits it creates like grape skin polyphenols, found in red wine. Concentration the the key. To really get benefits like the ones they are getting, you would have to drink hundreds of glasses of red wine daily.

I have included below all the Blogs I have done this year on resveratrol and my other favorite anti-aging compounds like Green Tea Ext, Grape Seed Extract, Vitamin D3 and Alpha Lipoic Acid and L-Carnitine.

Share this information with everyone you love who values their health.

Good health to you all...
