Can you make resveratrol even more effective?

Volume 5    |    Issue 100

As you may know, resveratrol is one of my favorite nutrients. Plants produce this phenol when they're injured or attacked by bacteria or fungi. Research has shown that it's fabulous for boosting your immune system, fighting bacterial and fungal infections, and even battling cancer. But what if you could make resveratrol even more effective?

For over 20 years, I've been extremely impressed with blueberry extract. Blueberries, and berries in general, are fairly low on the glycemic index and can fight metabolic syndrome, rather than contribute to it. But blueberry extract also has a natural antibiotic ability, which makes it a powerful complement to resveratrol. In fact, a recent study found that blueberry extract can fight gum disease and food-borne illnesses.

Most people have some degree of gum inflammation, or gingivitis. If left unchecked, dental plaque can move below the gum line and turn into periodontitis. And we know periodontitis can contribute to heart disease. So this is serious business.

In advanced cases, dentists will often resort to antibiotics to fight periodontitis. But antibiotics can cause all kinds of problems. So researchers started looking at natural antibacterial compounds to fight this type of infection. That's where the polyphenols in blueberry extract come in. In their study, researchers reported that the blueberry extract does inhibit the growth of periodontitis. What's more, it also stops the formation of biofilms. Biofilms are groups of cells that form a wide variety of microbial infections in the body. Some estimates say they're involved in 80% of all infections. So this is big news.

But that's not all. The blueberry extract also reduced inflammation in the gums. Other studies suggest this effect isn't limited to the gums. It can reduce inflammation throughout the body.

So does adding blueberry extract to resveratrol make it work better? The answer is yes. You see, blueberry extract contains pterostilbene. I've told you about this nutrient before. It's resveratrol's cousin. And I've also shown you how the two work together to fight disease. Two years ago, I told you about a study in which, "The researchers looked at 446 naturally occurring compounds from fresh fruits and vegetables. They were able to narrow down the list to two nutrients that had the most impact on chronic disease. They found that resveratrol (from grapes) and pterostilbene (from blueberries) both increased the expression of the human cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide (CAMP) gene. This gene is heavily involved in your immune function."

As a result of this study and many others, Advanced Bionutritionals was convinced it could supercharge its resveratrol supplement. After much research, the company developed what I think is one of the strongest supplements available. The name of it is Advanced Polyphenol Formula and it's now available. I've been using Advanced Resveratrol for years. I wasn't going to give it up easily because I knew how effective it was. But this supplement has really impressed me. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
