Hi people, I've been on this site for a long time and found the information excellent, now I'm going to ask a couple of questions and see if you guys can helpout. My brother in law has just been diagnosed with a very serious Butterfly Glioma on the brain, I've been doing some digging around and found some really good papers on the effect of RES on tumours, such as: Resveratrol Enhances the Antitumor Effects of Temozolomide in Glioblastoma via ROS-dependent AMPK-TSC-mTOR Signaling Pathway (Yuan Yuan,1,2 Xue Xue, Ruo-Bing Guo, Xiu-Lan Sun & Gang Hu1). Personally I've been taking RES for about 20 years so I've suggested that he also takes it, alongside a full ketogenic  diet, interestingly his Oncologist agrees and says that it is one of the most promising non pharmaceutical supplements he has come across. Now for my first question, have any of you had actual experience including dosage levels for this form of supplementation?


My second question is a little bit concerning because I’m not sure if somebody is trolling or trying some misinformation, I’ve been getting my RES from two main sources, RevGenetics, and though the web site is a pain and has recently not allowed me to get an order delivered to the UK for some reason, I do trust them. The second source has been I-Herb and Genceutic Naturals, pTeroBlue, Pterostilbene + Resveratrol, 350 mg, 60 V-Caps. These have always appeared to have been fine but I've never actually had them analysed, now on the I-Herb review part of the website comes this:-

Short of testing the product, I don't know of a way to tell.  I've not heard of pteroblue, that's neither plus or minus. 


As for resveratrol dosing, pharmokinetic studies  have shown a linear dose to blood level relationship up to doses of one gram.  Beyond that, less is absorbed but you are probably increasing blood levels with up to 4 or 5 gram doses. Doses that high produce diarrhea in many people.  Rather than a two gram dose, one might do better with two one gram doses. 8 to 12 hours apart. 


My guess is one should take the highest dose one can tolerate, and if there is any sign of intestinal distress, cut back. 


Individuals I've known who had lung cancer did not benefit from resveratrol.  A dog with liver cancer that had metastasized apparently recovered,  and lived another two years though he was expected to live for 3 month at most.  His owner put him down when his legs stopped working and she could no longer carry the 135 pound dog up to her 3rd floor apartment.  The dosage was a teaspoon mixed with salmon or other dog food.  The owner did not measure precisely.


I hope your brother does well.
