Human Clinical Trials
• 2015-2018 A number of phase II clinical trials are currently under way testing the effects of Resveratrol on Alzheimers biomarkers. More study is necessary before a definitive relationship can be proven, but so far, results are promising. • 2007 French Agronomic Institute study showed that 400mg of Bordeaux grape extract resulted in a 21% improvement in athletic performance, reduced inflammation by 48% and reduced cellular damage and cramp risk from exercise significantly. • 2007 study by Dr. Smoliga at Marywood University showed that the combination of grape polyphenols, Resveratrol and Quercetin found in Vindure™ improved neurocognitive performance and improved memory. • In 2007 researchers at Appalachian State University found that 1000mg of Quercetin daily can improve upper respiratory immunity and help maintain performance in physically stressed test subjects.** As a result, some US soldiers are now being supplemented with Quercetin.
• In 2004, scientists at the University of Montpellier in France used healthy animals to demonstrate that Quercetin reduced blood sugar and decreased appetite. • In 2003, Drs. Baur and Sinclair of Harvard University discovered that Resveratrol increased the lifespan of organisms and animal species by 20-40%. Their research concluded that the subject animals lived longer and healthier than the control animals. The most striking results were in the protection of the heart and blood sugar control in laboratory mice. • At the University of Michigan, animals that received grape extract had improved blood pressure, heart function, reduced oxidative stress and healthier heart muscle.
Chemicals called “Free Radicals” are produced in our bodies by oxidation. Antioxidants act as scavengers, removing these free radicals before the can damage cells. Researchers at the USDA suggest that a person consumes 3000-5000 “ORAC” (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) units of antioxidants each day. Due to ever-increasing processing, the amount of antioxidants found in foods has decreased over time. One daily Vindure tablet provides 4 to 6 times this amount.
