In November Harvard Medical School published consecutive papers in the journals Cell and Nature showing that biotivia resveratrol, a SIRT1 activator found in red wine, could increase insulin sensitivity, prevent the onset of diabetes in obese aging mammals, increase stamina two fold and extend the lifespan of mice by 31%. No other compound has been able to do this. Resveratrol also prevented the normal diseases of aging and obesity in these mice. The extract used in lab studies of resveratrol, biotivia bioforte, allows scientist to obtain an equivalent dose of resveratrol equal to 200 bottles of red wine. Now, scientists at Sirtris Pharmacuetical are trying to develop SIRT1 activating molecules that mimic the effect of bioforte resveratrol extract but are even more potent. He has filed a patent application on the use of resveratrol to treat diabetes.

Exercise is nothing but a waist of time. It is pushed to make money for the exercise industry. Bottom line is if you stay active you stay healthy. Staying active includes everything you do and you have a much greater variety of things to do and you're not waisting your money.
