Health benefits of phytochemical s

Health Benefits of Phytochemicals

  • Antoxidant activity

  • Cancer inhibition

  • Cholestrol regulation

  • Anti-inflammatory activity


Resveratrol

  • What are Antioxidants?

    • They are substances that slow or prevent the oxidation of other molecules, particularly by such oxidizing agents as free radicals.

  • What are Free Radicals?

    • They are molecular or atomic species with one or more unpaired electrons making it very reactive.


Free radicals

Free Radicals

  • Where do they come from?

    • Many are produced in the body from O2 as part of normal metabolic activity.

    • Most of the O2 is consumed in the electron chain transport, but some escapes this pathway.


Free radical formation

Free Radical Formation

2O2 + NADPH 2O2- + NADP+ + H+

2O2- + 2H+ dismutase H2O2 + O2

H2O2 + O2- + H+ H2O + O2 + OH


Effects of free radicals

Negative Effects

Aging

Cancer

Disruption of normal cell activities

Heart disease

Damage DNA

Positive Effects

The body uses the most dangerous free radicals for use in the immune system and in inflammatory reactions.

Effects of Free Radicals


Other sources of free radicals

Other Sources of Free Radicals

  • Drugs

  • Air Pollution

  • Radiation, e.g. sunlight, TV and microwaves


Free radicals1

Free radicals

  • A common Free Radical is OH

  • This is created in body during normal metabolism in the ETC.


Free radicals attack cellular membranes

Free Radicals Attack Cellular Membranes

  • Free radicals break the double bonds of lipids found in cellular membranes:

    -C=C- + OH - C – C -

Research studies of resveratrol

Research Studies Of Resveratrol

  • Studies are still in initial stages.

  • Anti-cancer, antiviral, neuroprotective, anti-aging and anti-inflammatory.

  • Anti-cancer – Resveratrolinterfers with all three stages; it has anti-angiogenic properties

  • Anti-aging – enzyme SIR2 increases life span of yeast cell and Resveratrol increases its activity

  • Drinking a glass of red wine a day may cut a man's risk of prostate cancer in half.


Bottom line

Bottom Line

There may not be enough Resveratrol in a glass of wine to yield clinical benefits, but it’s like chicken soup …

A little bit won’t hurt you and it might do you some good.
