Just 2 glasses a day of Red Wine enriched with Resveratrol, Phenols and Flavonoids can help repair cells and calm symptoms from Chemical Exposure injuries. This has been shown as a longevity tool used in many of the Blue Zones around the globe. These areas have the highest number or Centenarians on the planet where people live well into their hundreds in places such as Sardinia, Italy.
The red wines: Cabernet, Merlot and in particular the Sardinia Cannonau grapes have shown to have the strongest medicinal qualities for longevity. These wines have been linked to treating a wide array of Neurological problems such as Alzheimers, Parkinsons, and Dementia. They also provide extensive Cardiac health benefits which can help calm down the body tremors, seizures and heart spasms which many Cabin Crew experience following a Fume Event. The TCP and Organophosphate Poisoning from Fume Events create inflammation in the Brain, Lungs, and Heart. These conditions often become chronic in Cabin Crew after incurring this type of chemical exposure. The enriched Resveratrol ingredients in the red wines create a synergistic effect on the body tissues by reducing inflammation.
This is one way of combating these toxic effects on the body after dealing with a Chemical Exposure injury. Resveratrol, a compound found in red wine, red grapes, raspberries, and chocolate, appears to repair “leaky” blood-brain barriers, which allow blood from the body to enter the brain. This repair slowed the advancement of cognitive problems in Alzheimer’s patients, according to a study from Georgetown University Medical Center.
Researchers from the University of Malta suggest that chemicals found in red wine may protect the brain and could potentially ward off Parkinson’s disease (PD). The report, “Putative role of red wine polyphenols against brain pathology in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease,” appeared in the journal Frontiers in Nutrition.
Lifestyle interventions may combat neurological decline that occurs as a part of normal aging or as the result of diseases such as Parkinson’s. Epidemiological studies have indicated that drinking moderate amounts of red wine could be beneficial to the brain and general health. According to the article, red wine contains potentially beneficial polyphenols known as flavonoids.
In the first of two studies published in the July issue of American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, scientists at the University of Ulm, Germany, investigated the biological behaviors of resveratrol in human fat cell biology. Resveratrol is found in the skins of red grapes and has been shown to be a potent biological agent that may offer protection against cardiovascular disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers hypothesized that resveratrol might decrease obesity by preventing immature fat cells from fully maturing, and also help activate sirtuin 1 (Sirt 1), a protein that protects the heart from inflammation.
