How to drink

…Ha! You thought HA was going to say, “Drink responsiibly,” didn’t ya? Well, she isn't--Real Simple magazine is.

…They point out the upside of alcohol, which is that goodness of red wine for the heart mantra. It’s the resveratrol, you know. And new studies show you get a therapeutic amount from very little red wine.

….Who wants very little red wine?

…But HA digresses. A little wine can also protect your liver.

…Drinking in moderation can also lower cholesterol, some docs think.

…Also, if you like fruit in your drinks, you are a genius—alcohol bumps uo the antioxidant power of fruit. Fresh raspberry margs, yuh-um!

…Sad face. There is also a downside to drinking (see half the movies ever made). Three or more drinks a day may increase your chances of breast cancer 30%. If you already have a 3% chance, that becomes 4%.

…Alcohol can make your skin look crummy. Stretching the capillaries.

…Drinking can lead to overeating. Those nuts and chips.

…Alcohol can also screw up your sleep patterns.

…And, of course, being unable to stop drinking can deplete your bank account, push your family away, cost you everything, and force you to sleep next to a dumpster or kill someone.

…Drink slowly if you do drink. Drink later in the day. Don’t drink in the hot sun—you will get dehyrated.

…Before drinking eat something with a little fat in it. Stick to light or clear drinks. The darker, the more compounds it contains—hey, what about resveratrol?

….Diet soda makes you absorb the alcohol faster—don’t use it in drinks. It’s kinda silly, anyhow.

…Women process alcohol slower than men, so don’t try to match them one for one.

…HA always was a cheap date.

Resveratrol is an antioxidant.
Just as botanicals produce antioxidants to protect them selves, our body
has it’s own antioxidant protection system. However after the age of twenty the production of this essential antioxidant slows down.

Did you know glutathione is the most powerful, prevalent antioxidant in your body? Increasing your glutathione level will naturally increase your energy, detoxify your body and strengthen your immune system.
Tests show these products are effective in those who are stressed, aging, lacking sleep, or with any prolonged illness. In these situations, you can stimulates the body's production of glutathione to compensate for the body's accelerated use of it, strengthening your natural defences, decreasing your risk of illness, and guarding against the effects of the body's aging process.

The wonder ingredient in wine is indeed resveratrol. Dr. David Sinclair, Associate Professor of Pathology and Co-Director of the
Laboratories for the Biological Mechanisms of Aging at Harvard Medical School is the leader in research into the anti-aging
properties of resveratrol. The current studies performed by Dr. Sinclair and many other researchers have shown great promise for resveratrol treating the diseases of aging. There are numerous articles that I have linked to at my website -
http://resveratrol.webiage.com - that document the findings for the potential health benefits in treating heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity, and other diseases.
Concerning supplements containing a high quality and potency of resveratrol that is necessary to achieve the dosage levels utilized in the lab tests, there is a new product called Vivix. Shaklee Corporation, the number one natural nutrition company in the U.S. (http://www.shaklee.com/index.shtml), has produced a liquid resveratrol supplement that is 10 times stronger than
resveratrol alone due to its patented formulation of polyphenols.
Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Oz are both users and promoters of Shaklee products and Oprah has featured Roger Barnett, Chairman and CEO of Shaklee (http://www.shaklee.com/company_lead_ceo.shtml), on her show.
So for a highly researched resveratrol supplement of exceptional quality, please visit - http://www.shaklee.net/davidhynes/vivix - to discover more about Vivix.
