Resveratrol Causes Rogue Cells to Self-Destruct

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola

Story at-a-glance -

  • A Swiss study involving lab mice suggests resveratrol may be effective in treating lung cancer because it causes rogue cells to self-destruct — at least when administered nasally in high doses
  • The researchers observed a 45 percent decrease in tumor load in mice treated with resveratrol, noting they developed fewer and smaller tumors than untreated mice
  • Given its ability to neutralize free radicals, resveratrol is well-known for its antiaging, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant and neuroprotective properties
  • Although resveratrol is available from food sources such as blueberries, dark chocolate, grape skins and red wine, its low bioavailability makes taking a supplement a more effective option
  • Pterostilbene, which has superior bioavailability and provides benefits similar to resveratrol, is another potent plant compound you may want to check out

A Swiss study involving lab mice suggests the grape constituent resveratrol may be effective in treating lung cancer, at least when administered nasally in high doses. The researchers observed a 45 percent decrease in tumor load in mice treated with resveratrol, noting they also developed fewer and smaller tumors than untreated mice.

Despite the favorable outcome showing resveratrol’s ability to cause rogue cells to self-destruct, more research is needed. This is so mainly because resveratrol, upon ingestion as an oral dose, is metabolized and eliminated within minutes — well before it has time to reach the lungs.
