Resveratrol Reduces The Risk of Cancer and Hot Flashes

 

" Begin menstruating before the age of 12 or reaching menopause after the age of 55 increases the risk of getting ovarian, breast and uterine cancers."

 

Menopause itself doesn't increase the risk for cancer, however, women are more at risk of developing cancer with age. Studies suggest that the long exposure to estrogen prior to menopause increases the risk of various cancers. Women who experienced menopause after the age of 55 or began menstruating before the age of 12 are at a higher risk of having ovarian, breast and uterine cancers.

Resveratrol

Resveratrol is a polyphenol naturally found in the skin of red grapes and the root of japanese knotweed. Known for its great health benefits, resveratrol increases the body's sensitivity to insulin, supports the healthy functioning of the brain and reduces the risk for heart disease and cancer.

Resveratrol reduces hot flashes in 78.6% of menopausal women

A clinical study at the Center for Menopause Maggiore Hospital of Charity of Novara, Italy, revealed that resveratrol reduced the intensity of hot flashes in 78.6% of menopausal women. The oral consumption of resveratrol was shown to reduce the severity of hot flashes from severe and moderate to mild.

Another study showed that menopausal women who took a combination of resveratrol and equol have significantly improved their quality of life after 12 weeks. 85.7% have less problems associated with dry vagina, 78.8% experience less heart discomfort/pain, 73.3% have less problems with having sex. It has been reported that 94.1% of these women also perform better at work and other activities. Their quality of sleep has been significantly improved too.
* Equol is a phyto-estrogen extracted from soya beans.

Resveratrol reduces the risk of cancer in postmenopausal women

In addition to biological factors; pollutants, unhealthy foods and UV rays are known to trigger the formation of free radicals in the body. Free radicals are harmful molecules that cause damage to cells and tissues our body. Our body needs antioxidant to neutralise free radicals, otherwise, these free radicals trigger oxidative stress which causes damage to cells including DNA. DNA damage can lead to the development of cancer.

Studies showed that resveratrol reduces the risk of cancer in postmenopausal women. It is worth for menopausal and postmenopausal women to discuss with their doctor about taking a resveratrol supplement to reduce the risk of having cancer. The skin of red grapes contains about 50 to 100 microgram of resveratrol per gram. However, it is likely that menopausal and postmenopausal women need to eat more than 500g of red grapes a day to get an enough amount of resveratrol.

Resveratrol Helps Prevent Collagen Degradation in Menopausal Skin

Free radicals are known to cause damage to collagen, one of the main components which gives skin its strength and firmness. During and after menopause the body produces less collagen. The declining levels of collagen in the body trigger the appearance of wrinkles, lines and sagging skin.

Studies showed that resveratrol has powerful antioxidative properties to neutralise free radicals. The antioxidative properties of resveratrol is much higher than those of vitamin A, C, E, catechin in tea, epicatechin in cocoa, gallocatechin in adzuki beans, gallic acid in blueberries and ellagic acid in pomegranates. A clinical data indicated that resveratrol has 17 times greater antioxidant activities than idebenone, the antioxidant used in some anti-ageing skincare products (Richard A Baxter, MD; Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, March 2008).

To boost the collagen synthesis and reduce the signs of ageing in the skin, apply Bio-Collagen Serum to freshly-cleansed skin after cleansing, morning and evening. Formulated with resveratrol, coenzyme Q10 and ferulic acid, this award-winning anti-ageing serum helps restore the youthfulness of the skin from within. Utilising the latest nano bio-technology, Bio-Collagen Serum has been infused with ultra-low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid and 24-karat nano gold particles to deliver active ingredients, nutrients and oxygen into the deeper layers of the skin. It also contains niacinamide and n-acetyl glucosamine to prevent and reduce skin pigmentation and melasma. Bio-Collagen Serum can also be applied to the skin around the eyes to reduce dark circles, eye puffiness and other signs of ageing.
