Hello everyone,

I have been a resveratrol consumer now for over 16 months. As most of you now know, resveratrol mimics the effects of caloric restriction to extend life spans. Calorie restriction has been around since the 30’s and is the only proven way to extend the human life span. Except I enjoy my regular calorie diet and that is why I take resveratrol.
During my research I came across a brand, which I now take, ...[they]recently came out with a dog product by the name of ...[for] Canine[s]. The main ingredients are resveratrol, Atlantic Kelp, Flaxseed Oil and Lecithin. This custom formulated blend of natural sources has Omega 3, antioxidants, amino acids, trace minerals and vitamins. All which support cardiovascular health, immune system function, healthy skin and coat, healthy joint function, energy and endurance.

I have been feeding ...[this] Canine [formula] to my 1 year old pitbull now for about 5 weeks. During which time I have not changed her diet or regular activities. She is now leaner and shows more muscle tone and her coat is much shinier. These two things are great but they are not the reason I feed her resveratrol. The reason is that I had two other dogs which died from cancer related diseases. Apparently, about 50% of deaths in dongs are cancer related. This means if you own two dogs, the chances are one of them is going to get some type of cancer.


Resveratrol has been shown to reduce tumor incidence in animals by affecting one or more stages of cancer development.” according to the National Cancer Institute. You can find this online in their website. I also found a report online by CBS NEWS in Denver which quotes the Chair of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department at CU Denver, “There’s no doubt, if you feed an animal this stuff, they’re going to get less cancer,”Dr. Robert Sclafani.

Hmm. Your post smells like cured ham in a can.

Calorie restriction has been around since the 30’s and is the only proven way to extend the human life span.


No, that's incorrect. CR has NOT been proven to extend max lifespan in humans.

Interesting point; there have been historical examples of alternate day fasting among religious groups, and the Okinawans have practiced a mild form of dietary restriction (adequate nutrition with limited calories) for some centuries. These groups have shown extended average life span, and improved health into old age, but no instances of life extension beyond the generally accepted maximal figure of 120 years.

While CR appears to increase the maximal life-span of lab mice, the one study of genetically wild mice showed no, i repeat no increase in age of the oldest cohort versus non-restricted controls. The average age of death did increase somewhat. One explanation is that CR merely corrects for metabolic defects caused by over-breeding in lab animals.

Still, increased health-span, which CR and probably resveratrol bring about, is worth something.

5mg?


Should I start adding animal resveratrol supplements to the list?

Anthony, I would certainly be interested in buying a potent resveratrol supplement for my dog - What are believe is important in this regard are e.g.:
1) a pure product - e.g. no grape seed extracts as this is supposed to be bad for dogs
2) adapted to a medium range dog (serving)
3) reasonable price with quantity discount

Sure that is a good alternative for now - I do this already with L-Carnosine and other supplements - I have until now been a bit hersitant to give my dog Res due to the fact that grape seeds whether it is the extract or the whole fruit are suposed to be bad for dogs (like Chocolate) - of course many Res products together I guess do not contain any form of grape seed extract/Red Wine. The next challenge would be to determine the right dosis - I will look around for some prior info on this in this forum - my dog is around 30 kiloes. Finally, I am not sure that I could get any Res powder to Europe without being heavily taxed or worse get it confiscated. Any suggestions to these challenges are most welcome. Br Martin

It's funny how people are quick to judge without educating themselves. Based on the response I received, I see I need to exposit on what I stated on Feb 12.

However, before I do that, I received notice from immininst that I was spamming. I just want to clarify that my intentions are to facilitate people with awareness so they can make an educated decision.

Let me show everyone where I found some of my sources of education on calorie restriction and resveratrol. Hopefully I will not get edited again and be accused of spamming.

Calorie restriction has been around since the 30's. In 1934 Dr. Clive McKay from Cornell Universtiy Medical Center published a paper based on the fact that calorie restriction extended the life span of animals. I also recommend you go to the medical news today web site and type in their search engine "First Gene Discovered That Specifically Links Calorie Restriction To Longevity". There you will find a few quotes from Andrew Dillin, Ph.D., an associate professor in the Molecular and Cell Biology Laboratory.

Edward Weiss, researcher from the Saint Louis University, published the results of his study on calorie restriction in humans in the June issue of the journal Rejuvenation Research. Currently Dr. Luigi Fontana MD, PhD, works at the Department of Internal Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO; and at the Division of Food Science, Human Nutrition and Health of the Italian National Institute of Health, Rome, Italy is tracking 45 members of the Calorie Restriction Society for the last 12 years and has published results of his study.

I hope this helps, best wishes to everyone.

Dre
