Resveratrol Day 2

I took my second dose of resveratrol today at 12:30 AM. At this time I am not aware of any affects.

It is worth noting what this experiment will tell us, and what it won't. If I end up feeling nothing after 30 days on resveratrol, we will only know that I did not feel anything after 30 days on this dose. That, of course, will not mean that it had no effect; just that I was unable to feel the effect. If I have a sense of altered sensation or function during the 30 days, what will be known is that I have had a sense of altered sensation or function; nothing more.

If I happen to feel more energy, or other valuable functional improvement, you can bet that I will go off the resveratrol for a month, and then try another month on it again. If the improved function reappears, it will be more suggestive that the resveratrol is having an effect.

Isn't it fun to be a scientist?

Resveratrol w/o the Wine

My 60 year-old friend, Bill, told me last Sunday that he had been taking resveratrol for 3 weeks and was feeling a lot more energy; feeling younger. He offered to buy me a one month sample of the product that he was taking so that I could try it out.

Here is what the Linus Pauling Institute of Oregon State University says about resveratrol.

Here is what I started taking at 11:40 AM today; one per day:
I will be taking one each day and will try to blog about it each day for 30 days. We'll see how that works. :)

I believe Bill told me that he is taking what he gave me, every other day, and on the days in between, he is taking twice as much resveratrol.

I have no question about the safety of my taking this level of resveratrol, and I appreciate the opportunity to do yet another small experiment with my life and health. If we don’t experiment, we may not learn much, we may get into a rut, and we may not live as vital and engaged a life.

I will try to blog this each day for the next 30 days.

Thank you Bill!
