Since the Avian Bird Flu of 2005, scientists and researchers have been looking for a cure to these rapidly spreading viruses. Today's Swine Flu is no anomaly, it bears resemblance to the Avian Flu and reacts the same way to medications.Researchers have discovered that certain antioxidants and a blend of antioxidants significantly reduces the duplication of both the H1N1 Swine Flu and the H5N1 Avian Bird Flu. Scientists infected mice with the H5N1 bird flu and then administered high doses of resveratrol to them all. They administered doses just as they were getting infected, 3 hours, 6 hours and 9 hours after. 90% of the mice that were administered resveratrol even 3 hours after getting infected suffered little to no sickness.The key to remember here is that resveratrol is produced by plants to fight infection and disease. That's the whole purpose of it. Sure it's been getting a lot of media attention for its life-extending properties, but the truth is - it's an antibiotic.Resveratrol is found naturally in red wine, red wine vinegar, grape juice, grapes (not raisins), peanuts, Japanese knotweed, and dark chocolate. Start stocking up on resveratrol this H1N1 Swine Flu Season. Drink grape juice for breakfast, add peanuts to your salad, drink some red wine before you go to bed. And don't forget to put a piece of dark chocolate on your wife's pillow.Resveratrol can be found in supplements too. Don't just buy any supplement though. Make sure each serving is individually packaged. Try to avoid pills because resveratrol is best absorbed in the mouth -buccal absorption - so find a liquid that is isotonic and effervescent. There are lots of options on the market.
Did you know that resveratrol might not be the only reason red wine is considered to be healthy? In fact, red wine has other compounds that are more powerful and in higher concentration than resveratrol.
