Just a a quick announcement to you connoisseurs of primary literature...
Have you seen the August article in Nature re: actual INCREASES IN LIFESPAN in experimetal models with resveratrol (in raspberries, peanuts, etc.)?
Effects seem to be independent of the typical antioxidant properties (they also activate sirtuins).
If only I had access to this info. when writing High Steaks! (At least I mentioned the compound, eh?) Even life-extensionists have great difficulty restricting kcal dramatically enough to significantly activate such pathways and add years to their existence.
I'm sure tons of age-reversal hype is about to pour from supplement companies (Ugh.) but I'm still interested to see the effects of those upcoming rat (and human) studies...
