Resveratrol is a polyphonic bioflavonoid antioxidant that is produced by certain plants which mostly can be found in dark chocolates and red wines. It is classified as phytoestrogen because it can interact with a human estrogen receptors in a very positive way.

According to a published research in BMC Cell Biology, resveratrol can use to rejuvenate and regenerate old cells. Researcher were led by Lorna Harries, a professor of molecular genetics and Dr. Eva Latorre, a research associate as they both works at the University of Exeter.

Researchers found out that by adding “reveralogues” or any natural chemical that associates with resveratrol will make someone appear much younger and most importantly the old cell starting divinding anew.

“It was like magic. I repeated the experiments several times and in each case, the cells rejuvenated.” according to Dr. Latorre.

“..the cells regain some features of youth. They are able to grow, and their telomeres, the caps on the ends of the chromosomes that shorten as we age are now longer, as they are in young cells.” According to Professor Harries.

Studies point out that the best known source of resveratrol are red wine, raw cocoa, skin of red grapes and dark berries like blueberries, mulberries, lingonberries and bilberries.
