• Titanium Dioxide is used as an opaquing agent in the shell of Longevinex capsules to protect contents from light exposure. Unfiltered light may degrade a key ingredient (resveratrol) in Longevinex. The Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations says this about titanium dioxide. Given its insolubility in water, hydrochloric acid, dilute sulfuric acid, […]

  • The reference used by the manufacturer of the astragaloside IV dietary supplement to substantiate its use does not even mention astragaloside IV, it only mentions that telomere dysfunction is involved in DNA damage. It is true that telomeres shorten in most tissues during aging.  But there is question as to whether this is a cause […]

  • Users of Longevinex® often report better endurance and stamina (“no afternoon lull”), faster hair growth, better circulation, darkening of grey hair, and better mental clarity. Many consumers want to know if the resveratrol in Longevinex® will lower their cholesterol numbers or blood pressure. When Dr. Serge Renaud of France announced the French Paradox in 1992 […]

  • Resveratrol is a small molecule and about 70% is absorbed and rapidly enters the blood circulation and is attached to (conjugated with) detoxifying molecules (sulfur and glucuronate) in the liver. Longevinex® includes quercetin, a natural molecule commonly found in wine and onions, that allows resveratrol to make more passes through the liver, and thus makes […]

  • Currently, Longevinex is the only resveratrol-based dietary supplement to have been used successfully in a human study. A relatively low dose of Longevinex, about 1 capsule per day, was shown to reduce markers of inflammation and oxidation among endurance athletes. [Appalachian State University, 2007] There are hundreds of published reports which confirm the health benefits […]

  • The p53 gene is a tumour-suppressing gene, socalled because, when functioning, it stops tumors from forming. If damaged DNAis beyond repair, p53 causes the cell to self-destruct. So, early on, there wasconcern that resveratrol might increase the risk for cancer, though reams ofscientific evidence show resveratrol halts tumor formation. The most recentstudy now shows that […]

  • According to current research, while resveratrol is a molecule that has weak estrogen-like qualities, unlike other plant estrogens such as from soy, it does not increase the activity of estrogen. Resveratrol has been shown to increase sperm volume in animals by stimulating the hypothalamus and pituitary glands and protects sperm from oxidation. Resveratrol may hinder […]

  • It is true that resveratrol is an estrogen-like molecule.  We are all learning about the unusual properties of resveratrol.  These unusual properties help to explain its wide margin of safety in human subjects.  It is unusual in the following ways. 1. Resveratrol is the weakest of phytoestrogens, 1/7000th the action of estrogen (soy is about […]

  • Preferably with meals, as the French drink their red wine with meals. Taking supplemental vitamin C at the same time as Longevinex when consuming food will negate the mineral chelating effects of Longevinex. It is best to take vitamin C supplements at a different time. According to a recent study involving mice, published in Nature […]
