Resveratrol improves aortic stiffness (in rhesus monkeys) | David Sinclair

Parent Episode: Dr. David Sinclair on Informational Theory of Aging, Nicotinamide Mononucleotide, Resveratrol & More

Over the past few decades, an abundance of scientific research has focused on resveratrol, a plant-based compound found in red grapes and peanuts. Much of this research has demonstrated that resveratrol exerts beneficial health effects – especially on the cardiovascular system – and has been shown to ameliorate the deleterious effects of an obesogenic diet (rich in saturated fat and sucrose) in monkeys. In particular, at high doses, resveratrol improved the monkeys' aortic stiffness by as much as 40 percent. In this clip, Dr. David Sinclair describes research demonstrating the beneficial effects of resveratrol on the cardiovascular system of monkeys.
