Medical School Study Concludes That Resveratrol Could Reduce Adverse Health Effects In Smokers.

LIGHTNING RELEASES: Arlington, Virginia, Biotivia Bioceuticals (1/13/2014) – The World Health Organization (WHO) says up to half of the world’s 1 billion smokers will die prematurely of tobacco-related diseases (1). Now a human trial researches if the plant molecule Trans-resveratrol could offer some help to smokers wanting to reduce lung damage.

According to research published by Oxford Journals (2), the smoke inhaled from each puff on a cigarette contains about 10 trillion free-radicals. Free radicals are dangerous unpaired electrons which cause damage to cells and DNA and lead to diseases like emphysema and lung cancer. The blizzard of free radicals in tobacco smoke leads the WHO to write: ‘More than 70% of deaths from lung, trachea and bronchus cancers are attributable to tobacco use’. Researchers think virtually everyone who smokes regularly will contract the pulmonary disease COPD later in life.

The US National Institutes of Health write on their website (3): “The evidence is becoming increasingly strong that free radicals are involved in many of the chronic diseases that are associated with smoking. In particular, radicals appear involved in emphysema and chemical carcinogenesis.”

Now a human clinical trial conducted at the University of Turin (Torino) Department of Internal Medicine, has confirmed that the plant molecule Transmax Resveratrol might help smokers to limit the damage caused to their lungs and other organs. In this study – titled ‘Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of resveratrol in healthy smokers a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over trial’ – subjects were administered 500mg daily of Transmax Resveratrol for a period of one month. The researchers concluded that: “Because resveratrol has anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and hypotriglyceridemic effects, its supplementation may beneficially affect the increased cardiovascular risk of healthy smokers”.

James Betz is the founder and Chief Science Officer of Biotivia, the company who supplied the Transmax 500mg Trans-Resveratrol used in the study. Betz stated: “This new peer-reviewed double blind study by one of the world’s oldest and most respected University Medical Schools confirms the multiple protective properties of Transmax Resveratrol for smokers. The Turin University Medical School study found that daily use of Transmax produced a strong beneficial effect in heavy smokers by reducing inflammation and quenching damaging free radicals, two of the most serious adverse effects of tobacco use. Prolonged exposure to free radicals has been strongly implicated in lung cancer as well”
