Even necessary biological processes like the transformation of food into energy have a down side; as we age, it gets harder and harder for our bodies to cope with the residual damage these processes ultimately cause. Along with nutritional deficiencies, the unavoidable side effects of these processes trigger 50 to 70 percent of the health concerns which affect us today. Meanwhile, aging itself has become the most critical risk factor for all of the ailments that will determine our fates in the 21st century: cardiovascular disease, dementia, diabetes, osteoporosis and even cancer.
Promoting healthy aging naturally requires protecting against the two major contributors to failing health: hidden unhealthy inflammatory responses within the body and oxidative cell damage caused by free radicals.
Enemy Number One: Cellular Inflammatory Processes
Internal stress triggered by silent unhealthy cellular inflammatory processes can go unnoticed for many years. These unhealthy processes, however, can play an essential role in paving the way for many major age-related ailments. Our cardiovascular system is particularly affected, and the relationship between these processes, cardiovascular disease and a weakened immune system has been thoroughly investigated. Inflammatory markers in the blood can also be indicators of other issues such as decreased cognitive function, unhealthy cell growth and function, metabolic concerns and conditions like osteoporosis.
Healthy cellular inflammatory processes are normal mechanisms of healing which the body employs to ward off infections and pathogens. These healthy processes are triggered by certain food molecules, namely omega-6 fatty acids, and halted via their natural antagonists, omega-3 fatty acids. The problem is that in our modern human diet, the pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids, especially those found in industrially-processed vegetable oils, outweigh omega-3 fatty acids such as those found in cold-water fish, walnuts, linseed, rapeseed and hemp, by as much as twenty-to-one! This imbalance contributes to unhealthy cellular inflammatory processes in each of the body’s organs.
Enemy Number Two: Oxidative Stress
The vital process of metabolic energy production involving the use of oxygen is naturally accompanied by the risk of continuous cell damage from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress, which occurs when the cell is attacked by aggressive oxygen molecules, may be compared to the rusting or oxidation of iron. The human body contains over 100,000,000,000,000 mitochondria; miniature “power plants” located inside each cell which are responsible for the formation of chemical energy carriers. In each of these tiny structures, every second of the day tens of thousands of oxygen atoms turn into explosive objects called free radicals, just because they’re missing a single electron. These free radicals wrestle an electron from another molecule, and in doing so turn their victim into a radical atom as well. This triggers a chain reaction of unimaginable dimensions!
The protective mechanisms of our cells are able to cope to a certain degree; but our lifestyles, environmental toxins, the electromagnetic radiation of laptops and TV screens, harmful effects of stimulants like coffee, alcohol, tobacco and even stress have the potential to multiply these aggressive molecules. Ultimately, oxidative stress can lead to cell destruction. When too many cells are affected too quickly, we age prematurely – if left to continue unchecked, entire organs may cease to function properly.
At some stage of their lives, millions of people will have to combat one or several of the following three major threats: cardiovascular concerns, cognitive decline and unhealthy cell growth and function.
For the first time, modern scientific research has discovered ways to help promote healthy aging using special plant substances, or “new phytamines.” These plant substances evolved to fulfill specific functions in plants, such as offering protection against heat and cold, but also help protect the plant against viral, bacterial and fungal pathogens and other disease factors. Plants have developed these phytochemicals throughout time because they are physically unable to evade attacks. Ancient civilizations revered Nature’s treasure trove of herbs and plants and have understood their significance for some 10,000 years, during which they have been able to achieve astonishing effects by using these botanical substances.
The ResverChron® regimen is focused around bioactive secondary plant substances with strong anti-oxidant properties, many of which also promote healthy cellular inflammatory processes. In keeping with the most valuable findings of Far Eastern and Western medicine, ResverChron® successfully combines several dozens of standardized and pharmaceutically pure constituents together in one unique scientific formula.
In ResverChron®, this holistic “East-meets-West” philosophy spans a geographically wide range of phytochemicals including green tea, the well-known health-protective plant from Asia, certain berries used by Native American tribes and the red wine polyphenol resveratrol, the super-phytonutrient from Europe that promotes healthy aging. The results that can be achieved through the use of these substances are continuously validated by clinical trials and by traditional Western medicine.
What’s more, the carefully-formulated AM/PM doses in the ResverChron® regimen assure that essential vitamins, minerals and vital substances are administered in the optimal combination at the right time of day, in tune with the principles of chronobiology.

Resveratrol: The polyphenol resveratrol is an extremely effective antioxidant usually obtained from the skins of grapes. Its general effects in the body are to help promote healthy cellular inflammatory processes and to protect cell health. Resveratrol’s mechanism of action is particularly beneficial to the blood vessels and cardiovascular system in general, which is eminently threatened by the aging process.
Resveratrol has been shown to support healthy cognitive function and enhance energy production in the mitochondria, the “powerhouses” of the body’s cells. It also protects cardiovascular health and supports healthy weight, healthy insulin levels and healthy blood sugar levels already within normal ranges. Moreover, so far, resveratrol is the only substance shown to prolong the lifespan of diverse organisms.
Quercetin: Because high concentrations of this flavonoid are also found in grape skins, red wine that matures in oak barrels is particularly rich in quercetin. Quercetin helps promote healthy cell growth and acts as a free radical scavenger.
OPC: Another free radical scavenger found in grape seeds, OPC is approximately twenty times stronger than vitamin C and fifty times stronger than vitamin E. OPC is able to pass through the protective blood-brain barrier and even appears to protect healthy brain tissue, thus its reputation as a protector of healthy cognitive function.
EPA, DHA: The most important omega-3 fatty acids are obtained from algae and fat-rich sea fish. The average amount of these fatty acids typically obtained from food is far below the amount recommended by scientists. A dramatic imbalance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids is associated with an extremely high risk of disease. Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are available in pharmaceutically-pure form in softgel capsules.
ResverChron® was designed for broad-spectrum use to support healthy aging, in compliance with the results from countless scientific studies and treatment observations.The following overview shows some of the numerous ways secondary plant constituents have been found to produce positive changes subject to certain circumstances:
Supporting healthy cellular inflammatory processes: Protecting against inflammatory stress is crucial to healthy aging. Evidence of this type of stress is provided by easily-detectable proteins in the blood called hs-CRP (high sensitive C-reactive proteins). In combination with coagulation factors, unhealthy cellular inflammatory responses are the driving force behind an unhealthy cardiovascular system and poor cognitive health.
Oxidative stress: The substances in ResverChron® help protect against free radicals through different mechanisms of action.
Supporting a healthy cardiovascular system: The active ingredients in ResverChron® work to support healthy oxidation and LDL-cholesterol storage in body tissues.
