Anita has many years of experience in herbal remedies. She is also interested in natural health.


Research on Resveratrol

In 1992 two Cornell University plant scientists suggested that resveratrol might be responsible for the cardiovascular benefits of red wine.

Reveratrol might protect against cancer, heart disease, vascular dementia, alzheimer’s disease and support longevity.

One possibility is that resveratrol turns on genes that make sirtuins, ancient proteins which are found in virtually all species.

Activating sirtuins kicks off a response that fights disease and prolongs life. More research needs to be done>Home>Harvard


Strawberries are Anti-ageing

Strawberries contain vitamin C, manganese, fiber, copper, potassium, phosphorus, biotin, omega 3 fats.

Strawberries also contain resveratrol which research has shown to be anti-ageing and prevents degenerative diseases. Resveratrol was found to be richer in the seeds than in the fruit pulp.
