Default Resveratrol

Any thoughts or experience on resveratrol? Research seems to suggest positive effects in animal experiments. Additionally many of those who have done the research publicly claim to be using it althought they add the standard disclaimer that it is too early to advice people to use it.

IIRC: Problems with getting it to the right places.

Yea...it looks legit but it is very fat soluble...tough to get a spike in blood concentrations.

folks are working on ways around this however.

They should compound it with phosphatidylcholine, as in Siliphos (silybin from milk thistle bound to PC). That gets blood levels of that compound much higher, for much longer.

Interesting. Could someone provide a reference so I can read up on it?

Nick,
Simply google "Siliphos study". Should give you plenty.

Thanks for the suggestion, Garret. That search gave me some interesting reading but none of it on resveratrol's fat solubility. I did find the following abstract which seems to somewhat answer my question.

It's another thing...perhaps a little intermittent fasting, a little ketosis, a little exercise and a little resveretrol all add up to big benefit?

Sorry, I thought you had meant more info on Siliphos. My bad. Hope you found more of what you were looking for...

One thing I think is highly underestimated, and seemingly pointed out in the abstract you posted, is that not all substances have to get into the blood (in their original form, intact, or at all) to make huge differences in health.

Interesting. Just by chance I've been taking this
- 2 caps of krill oil (phospholipid based omega3s) along with
- 2 caps of a superstack of resveratrol (Purple STAC) containing 125mg resv per cap (250mg total)
for a period of now nearly 9 months.

Yet, the best fat loss when I also combined this with regular fish oil , approx. 2-3 grams of EPA/DHA combined.

I've resumed the 'big ass' fish oil intake.

However, some clients of us have reported decent fat loss by using Purple STAC as a stand-alone, but then by using 4 caps/day. Even though it's our own supp, I'm too cheap for this and rather enhance the effect by adding extra omega3s.

Interestingly, the most eager customers aren't people looking for fat loss, but for competitive cyclists looking for enhanced performance.
