There was a piece done by 60 Minutes recently on resveratrol. You can still find at least part of the video on their website...it was called "Fountain of Youth in a Wine RX?". It was really interesting(there are several short clips...make sure to check out the 12 minute one), and the benefits of resveratrol look very promising according to recent research. It has been shown to extend lifespan in mice and chimps. They say for humans they're more hoping for it to improve health instead of extend life (so a 90 year-old taking it might be a healthy and active as a 60 year-old). Check out the video. Pomology makes a good Anti-Aging supplement, and they offer a free sample of it at their site (if you like the sample, I found it at a good price at seacoastvitamins.com). It's not 99% resveratrol, but has some other excellent antioxidants in it as well.
