Resveratrol 2012

Hello James, I appreciate the work you are doing on this, and accept the benefits of Resveratrol, but I would also add there is a lot of other naturally occurring substances with extremely impressive properties, I wouldn't say Resveratrol was unique. It's often the case that something which gets attention for research looks head and shoulders more important than substances that are poor relations in research awareness. Combinations of these agents have truly phenomenal properties.

Resveratrol 2012

I, along with about 80 of the most important scientists and physicians in the US, Europe, Middle East, and Asia just participated in the Resveratrol 2012 scientific conference in the UK. The evidence for resveratrol's ability to prevent, and treat the diseases of our modern lifestyle and obesity were impressive to say the least. When I was interviewed 6 years ago I stated that Transmax resveratrol would be ultimately considered more important to human health than penicillin. At the conference, after my presentation, I amended this statement. I now believe that Transmax resveratrol will be more important to all antibiotics within 20 years. Its potential to prevent diabetes, cancers, cardio-vascular disease, and inflammatory conditions is unique amongst both natural compounds and pharmaceuticals.
