Switch On Your Anti-Aging Genes!


Hey guys! So many of you have been asking
me how do I know what nutrients are right for me, what’s the dosage, where do
I get them from, what do I look for on the label. And I think that I am uniquely
positioned to share this insight with you. I’ve spent the last two decades of
my life traveling all over the world finding out where things come from,
cutting out the middleman, so that we can work with smaller indigenous communities
or small farms or whatever it may be, so that we can all get the very best
ingredients at the best price and at the scientifically proven levels that we
need. So I wanted to share with you one of my favorite ingredients.
It’s called resveratrol. You’ve been watching the videos that we’ve been
putting out. Resveratrol is truly an anti-aging miracle this tiny little
capsule contains the power of over 500 glasses of red wine and without any of
the negative side effects of alcohol. What I love about resveratrol is there
are thousands and thousands of studies that have been done on it. It truly has a
longevity, anti-aging benefit to it. Today we’re here in Gainesville, Florida at the
University of Florida. And I’m in a laboratory where all sorts of nutrients
are tested for efficacy, for milligram dosage, really to show us what’s what. How
much is in here of the active ingredient that we’re looking for. You’ve been
watching the videos that we’ve been putting out. Resveratrol is truly an
anti-aging miracle. I interviewed Dr. Christian this morning and you can click
on the link in the description below to see his interview. It was amazing! We did
it at his house. But about a decade ago he wrote a very good article, a very good
paper on how resveratrol switches on our anti-aging genes. So as we get older,
these genes turn off and he- he showed that just with a small amount of
resveratrol, actually 20 milligrams, you could switch on these genes.
So I became fascinated. I went to the South of France, which is where you know,
this concept of the French paradox, that the French can eat a diet that’s super
rich in fats and all these different things, and yet have some of the
healthiest cardiovascular system- have some of the healthiest cardiovascular
systems in the whole wide world. So they have all this fat, they drink red wine. We
wonder what is it because? And so at the University of Bordeaux, I went over there
and I spoke with the scientists. I said, tell me everything!
Teach me everything! And what they told me was that it had a lot to do with
where you get the resveratrol from. Where this amazing molecule comes from, so they
sent me to vineyards in the Bordeaux region where I learned all about how
resveratrol comes from the seed, the stem, the vine of the plant. It’s a defense
system that protects the plant from different pathogens and it can work in a
very similar way within our own bodies. So if you eat peanut butter, if you like
red wine, if you eat dark chocolate, these are all places a lot of the dark- a lot
of the dark berries, these are all places that you can get resveratrol. But once I
really started to dig into the science, I learned that we needed more than what we
can just get from let’s say, a bottle of red wine. I learned that we needed
somewhere around 250 milligrams or 500 milligrams or even a 1,000 milligrams
to get the levels that we need from the science. So I only want you to remember
three simple things when you’re choosing to incorporate resveratrol into your
life. Number one: You’re looking for Trans-Resveratrol. So a lot of products
that are out there are just going to say “Resveratrol.” That does not work because
there are lots of different types of resveratrol. There’s Cis-Resveratrol
there’s Trans-Resveratrol and you want the Trans T-R-A-N-S. That’s the active
form of resveratrol. Number one. So you can’t get a ton of the Trans-Resveratrol
from the seeds, the stems, the vines or the grapes. In fact- you can
only get very small amounts of resveratrol. So in order to get the 250
milligrams, the 500, or the 1,000 of the Trans-Resveratrol, you need to get
it from other sources. There is a root that grows throughout most of Asia
called Japanese knotweed. And this weed grows all over the place. So if you can
get a wild crafted Japanese knotweed, that’s a great source for the power of
resveratrol. And we know that it has so much power on anti-aging. There have been
studies that it’s shown- there been studies that show that it helps with
weight loss. There have been other studies that show that it improves your
overall cardiovascular health. There are studies and you can google
this as it relates to people that are going through chemotherapy. The NIH has
done research, actually on the products that I developed over the years. And the
science is so incredibly compelling. The third thing I want you to look for when
choosing a resveratrol supplement is what sort of the capsule looks like. And
here, I’ve just got a couple of different examples. So this is a little soft gel. So
you can take it in this form. This is a capsule and you can see the material on
the inside and here is another capsule and you can see the material on the
inside. They all look very different and only one of these has Trans-Resveratrol, which you can see on the side of the packaging. Only one of these comes
from a wild crafted source and only one of these has none of the unnecessary
binders or fillers. So take the two minutes when you’re picking your
Trans-Resveratrol to make sure it’s at 250, 500 milligrams or 500 milligrams
depending on what you’re looking to achieve. Make sure that it’s coming from
wild crafted or an organic source and you know you can’t get organic Japanese
knotweed, but you can get it as wild crafted, so that’s the second thing to
look for. And the third thing is in the other ingredients. You want to make sure
that there’s no unnecessary binders or fillers that really hold back the
amazing benefits of Trans-Resveratrol. I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit
about what to do when choosing a powerful
anti-aging resveratrol molecule. I love your comments, so keep leaving them.
You’ll see in the description we have links to so many other articles, other
videos, ways to incorporate resveratrol into your diet. I’ve got tons of recipes
and just overall, I hope you enjoy the beauty of this incredible molecule.

  1. Thanks for watching! I became enamored with the health benefits of resveratrol and resveratrol supplements many years ago—not because it just so happened to come in nature’s seductive sources such as wine and chocolate, but because of how it could repair and rejuvenate the body from the inside out. This is one powerful anti-aging tool. Hope you enjoy the video -Naomi x

  2. I read that Pterostilbene has 7 times the half life of trans-resveratrol. Also, I read that it is 90% absorbed better than trans-resveratrol and 4 times the greater uptake into cells. https://www.nutraingredients-usa.com/Article/2011/11/21/Resveratrol-may-boost-mental-functions-but-pterostilbene-may-be-even-better-Animal-studies

  3. Hi Naomi, since you’ve done so much research, would you mind linking or responding with maybe 2or 3 on the market that you approve of thanks so much

  4. Hi Naomi
    I am a new subscriber to your channel. I work a health store as vitamin consultant…also a chemist with 16years of experience in pharmaceutical industry in quality assurance area…..
    I love your channel and your recipes
    I know all about resveratrol I know your product would be priced in US dollars we here in Canada 😉 it is kind expensive for until in gets here burlington.ontario recently they are charging costum on each product
    Do you if I want to use this supplement other than your Brand which one is good to purchase in here even if it is from professional line …I really appreciate ❤️🙏

  5. I heard Rev long time ago, not sure working or not. Until a few months ago, I met a gym bro, he said he s exactly the same age as me. He Looks amazing. He told me he ate Re for around 10 years

  6. If the French paradox is caused by resveratrol, then they must get it from the wine ….Or they're all taking the supplement?
    ….Or, is it because saturated fat isn't as bad as we've been lead to believe, so there is no paradox?

  7. Is there a specific time of day to get the best benefits of trans-resveratrol; and with food or on an empty stomach? Thanks in advance for answering! Love your videos.

  8. Do not plant Japanese knotweed in your garden…not unless you want to lose your home and have all surrounding houses sue you….interesting vid.
