It has been found to be even better than thought and now, drug companies are working on a synthetic so they can "sell" it. There was a show on TV about it the other day. The studies are showing that someone old may be in the shape of someone about 30 years younger. Of course, you can buy the natural form at health food stores as a supplement. Does anyone have their boy on it? And if so, which kind, liquid or pill, what brand, etc? Here is a write up on it. There are all kinds of information on it on the internet, but the sentence at the end of this paragraph is the most interesting write up that I've found as there have been studies that Viagra may help our boys and well, at least, this is natural if you buy it at a health food store. They said the synthetic will be out in about 2 years. Here is what I found interesting: Nitric oxide is a critical component of heart/artery function. It allows blood vessels to “relax,” which enhances blood flow. In a recent study, a high-cholesterol diet decreased nitric oxide by about a third. Resveratrol supplements significantly reversed the trend.[4] In this respect, resveratrol is similar to Viagra, which also affects nitric oxide. However, whereas Viagra only affects small vessels, resveratrol affects the main arteries.* Michelle

I remember reading that Resveratrol is found in grapes ( the skin of the grapes). I might try eating more grapes considering the benefits it has.
Kelvin's favorite food is grapes, he has eaten tons ( I mean pounds) every week since he could eat (In the summer he eats less of them, as they are harder to find and he eats every other fruit too). Maybe that is helping him. We'll never know. He is doing great and with turning 7 soon, I hope that he continues as he is. He'll keep eating grapes! I hear only the red ones benefit better. Kelvin only eats the red ones, not the green ones. I tried a liquid Resveratrol, he hates it, so it is in the frig. Maybe I'll take it. Michelle

yes, my son use to take one a day for about 6- 8 months. I took him off his grape seed extract pill he took daily then added resveratrol to him regimen. I took him off of this eventually because he was on so many supplements at once.
After your post, I found this, so we'll give it a try...
