Resveratrol for longer and healthier life?

According to Joseph Maroon M.D. in his book – The Longevity Factor (2009) you can live healthier and longer life if you add certain foods that contain xenofactor –  Resveratrol, the most potent poly-phenol to your diet.  Resveratrol has powerful benefits for us, like prevention of heart attack, cancer and strokes, writes Maroon.

I don’t know if this is true.  But if you look at these foods, they are really good healthy food choices. If  you never eat some of these foods, you might want to add them to your diet to make sure, that you are not missing anything. Just take it easy on the drinks.

Here are the best dietary sources of Resveratrol:

  • Red wine
  • White vine
  • Port and sherry
  • Grapes
  • Dry grape skins
  • Red grape juice
  • White grape juice
  • Raw cranberry juice
  • Blueberries
  • Bilberries
  • Peanuts
  • Roasted peanuts
  • Boiled peanuts
  • Peanut butter – 100 % natural
  • Pistachios
  • Dry rhubarb root
  • Pomegranate juice
  • Dark chocolate

My personal goal is not to live 120 or 130 years, but to maintain my present quality of life for as long as possible. To that end, I will continue to exercise my body and mind, cultivate family and friends, and extend altruism and kindness to my patients. Finally, I intend to continue to supplement my daily glass of Pinot Noir wine with natural xeno factors.   – Joseph Maroon.
