Taking Resveratrol will reduce the risk of falling!

in Dr. Rosenfeld, Resveratrol

On July 15, after watching Dr. Rosenfeld’s Sunday Housecall program, a visitor found my old blog and left a comment there.

Isotonix® Resveratrol

This visitor thought Dr. Rosenfeld mentioned a supplement that would lower the blood pressure. I am really interested in anything that would lower the blood pressure without all those prescribed medications. That’s why I went to the Sunday Housecall videos site, looking for that particular video, and this is what I found.

I am sure this video is what my reader Rita referred to when she talked about the supplement that may lower the blood pressure. However, as you may see from the video on top of the right sidebar, Dr. Rosenfeld was talking about the linkage between blood flow to the brain, high blood pressure and the falls in the elderly people. Once again, you will see Dr. Rosenfeld mentioned about yet another benefit of Resveratrol toward the end of the video.

Please note that if you move your mouse over the video screen, then click on the full screen icon as shown on the left, which is located at the lower right corner of the video, you should be able to watch the full screen version of this video. However, you will only see the icon when you slide your mouse over the video screen.

This is the list of what Dr. Rosenfeld said in the video:

  • Falls in the elderly is linked to decreased blood flow in the brain
  • Controlling the blood pressure will reduce the risk of falls, and
  • older people who take Resveratrol have been shown to have increased blood flow to the frontal part of the brain.

As you may see from the video, once again, Dr. Rosenfeld told us that he is taking Resveratrol daily, which is a repetition of what he had said in his last presentation on Resveratrol and Diabetes.

Thanks to Rita for the comment that have prompted me to do the search, and now I can share with you all here.

I hope you would be able to see the benefits of this powerful antioxidant – Resveratrol that promotes cellular health.

Note:

  1. For those who are interested in the research that was mentioned in the video, please check this reference on: Effects of resveratrol on cerebral blood flow variables and cognitive performance in humans: a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover investigation by Kennedy DO, et.al., from Brain, Performance and Nutrition Research Centre, United Kingdom. Did you find the info about making you sharper after taking resveratrol? :-)
  2. This post provides some of the ER visit data mentioned in the text. ( http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/view/165773 ) in addition to what Dr. Rosenfeld mentioned in the video.
  3. Mayo Clinic website ( http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/fall-prevention/HQ00657 ) and other sites provide useful tips to prevent falls in elderly.
