Dr. Rosenfeld on Resveratrol and Diabetes

by drt on April 14, 2008

While watching the Sunday Housecall on Foxnews this morning, I saw Dr. Rosenfeld explained the benefits of Resveratrol, particularly in reducing the complication of Diabetics. However, when Dr. Rosenfeld mentioned that he had no connection to any product he mentioned in the show, I thought it would be fair to my readers if I let them know my affiliation with Market America as an independent distributor.

Isotonix® Resveratrol

I sincerely believe in the integrity and the effectiveness of Market America dietary supplements, and I’ve enjoyed the benefits as I’ve mentioned repeatedly in this blog. That’s why it should not be any surprise, if I’d preferred Market America Isotonix® products than other companies’ products, even the one mentioned in Dr. Rosenfeld’s video. You may find more info on Isotonix® Resveratrol on Market America Resveratrol site by clicking the advertising link on the right side, or you may watch the product info video by clicking the ‘Watch the video!’ button below.

After watching this 2:23 minutes video, you may also check the FAQ and other info there. Then you may listen to the opinion of Dr. Rosenfeld on Resveratrol in the 1:36 minutes video below.

I hope you enjoy the videos and with all these information, and now you know what to ask your doctor about Resveratrol. According to Dr. Rosenfeld, not only Diabetics but everybody (which means you and I :smile: ) should take Resveratrol.

Last but not least, thanks to Foxnews that has made the sharing of this video possible.

Thank you for the video clip and info about the grape’s skin. Grape has been my favorite fruit for snacking and I wonder if I can stay young because of it now ha ha ha ha

drt April 15, 2008 at 10:20 pm

Thanks for your comment CaptainB. You must have to consume tons of grapes since they said to gain the same result people need to consume 1000 bottles of redwine. :smile:

BTW, I received many complaints that the videos in this site could not be accessed. I also just found that the MA video on Resveratrol sometime would not show up in the page if I use Mozilla Fairfox, but it works okay in Internet Explorer and Netscape 8.1.2. I don’t know why but after I brought up the Netscape and went back to check the Fairfox browser, the video finally showed up. Any pointer on why this happens would be appreciated.

My friend Betty told me that it would be better if the title used Diebetes instead of Diebetic and I’ve corrected it.

Nancy Conaway September 11, 2008 at 2:39 pm

I thought Dr. Rosenfeld said something about a “sleeve” which could be inserted non-surgically through the duodenum, which would have the same effect as gastric-bypass surgery. Did I not hear correctly? My doctor knows nothing of it and I’m very interested. Please inform me.

Marybeth February 18, 2009 at 1:53 pm

I am sorry, but i feel consumers should know that Resveratrol is not all that! I have been taking it (I had cancer) and I don’t feel any better, actually, I feel a bit worse…PLEASE do not get scammed by these people that sell this product! It is not worth it! If you want grape seed, etc., just buy a bottle of dark, red wine, and save yourself some money. I am VERY disappointed and have tried to complain to the company itself and of course, they never responded.

drt February 18, 2009 at 2:49 pm

Marybeth,

I respect your opinion, and I let it be posted here. However, as far as I know, Dr. Rosenfeld is a respected authority in the medical field and that was the reason I posted his video here together with Market America video. Again, this is for information sharing purpose only and it is always a good practice to check with your doctor before taking any supplements.

I don’t know where did you get your Resveratrol. For Market America Isotonic Resveratrol, as you can find from the FAQ section here,
there are these warnings:

I am currently taking medication to manage my cholesterol. Can I still take Resveratrol?

There are no documented interactions with cholesterol medication and any of the ingredients in Resveratrol. However, before taking any natural supplement, you should consult your physician.

Who should take this product?

Clinical studies have shown that resveratrol extract may be helpful in promoting apoptosis (programmed cell death) in unhealthy cells, supporting normal cell cycle activity, promoting the normal activity of the SIRT-1 gene, thereby supporting overall cellular health. If you are interested in promoting cellular health and maintaining good cardiovascular health, than Isotonix Resveratrol is perfect for you.*

Can men and women take this product?
Yes. However, women with a history of estrogen-sensitive cancers (breast, ovarian, uterine) should not take this product. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not take this product.*

Dear DRT,

Why do you think Market America’s resveratol is better than than the stuff from Botanical Vitality? Market America’s is certainly less expensive but, for one thing, Market America’s label info. for resveratol is not as detailed as the info on Botanical Vitality’s site. So, I would like to buy one of these…just give me concrete reasons why yours is a better choice. Also, do you have more detailed descriptions of the products content? For instance, here’s what the other guys provide and this is the kind of thing I would like from Market America’s. Thanks:

——————————————————————————–
Pomegranate extract
(standardized to 50% total
polyphenols, 20% ellagic acid) 250 mg*

——————————————————————————–
Resveratrol Concentrate
(20% standardized) providing
40 mg trans-reservatrol) 200 mg*

——————————————————————————–
Red grape standardized
extract (skins and seeds) 250 mg*

——————————————————————————–
Quercetin 75 mg*

——————————————————————————–
Soy lecithin 75 mg*

——————————————————————————–

Dear Stouk,

I’m glad you did your due deligent. I always hope my visitors would do that before they buy any supplement either from what they have seen here or elsewhere.

I don’t know anything about the product you mentioned. However, I like our Resveratrol, since, as you can see from Market America video on Resveratrol below, our Market America Resveratrol is one of our Isotonix ® products.

As for other ingriedients, you can check the ingredient list of our other Isotonix® products such as Isotonix® OPC-3 ® ORAC, Acai, B-Complex etc., or if you can go to complete the Nutriphysical Survey, you may create your own cocktail and order it from MA. They may contain most of the ingredients you mentioned above.

But again, please check with your doctor before you take anything you buy from the Internet. :-) Thanks for your visit.

RITA SCHLUNEGER July 15, 2010 at 11:00 pm

I am interested in the product that you indicated you recommended for lowering blood pressure.(over the counter,I believe) This was mentioned on the july11th.
thanks for your excellent show.

drt July 16, 2010 at 7:28 am

Hi Rita,

Thanks for your comment. However, I didn’t watch the last few shows of Dr. Rosenfeld. If you have any question concerning his show, you may write him at Foxnews House Call show. I only post his video to share with my readers, but I don’t have any direct connection to either Dr. Rosenfeld and Foxnews at all.

drt July 28, 2010 at 8:39 pm

Hi Rita,

I think I have found the video you mentioned above in your comment. Please check my newest post and watch again Dr. Rosenfeld’s video there.

Thanks.

Rosemary October 17, 2010 at 10:31 am

Dr.Rosenfeld
Sunday ,Oct.17, I was trying to watch your program on Fox years and overheard you say something about two shots everyone should have every 10 years. I know one of the was the Whooping Cough but did not hear what the other one was. Could you please let me know what is was.

drt October 17, 2010 at 11:24 am

Hi Rosemary,

This site is not related in anyway to Dr. Rosenfeld or Foxnews. I just posted their videos to share with all my visitors. Please email Dr. Rosenfeld directly to housecall@foxnews.com or visit Dr. Rosenfeld page on Foxnews and click on Email to Dr. Rosenfeld link there.

BTW, today’s videos usually would be available in the evening on their site. If I find the one you were asking for I may post it in this blog.

Hope this help.

drt October 17, 2010 at 6:37 pm

Hi Rosemary,

I went to Housecall webpage but couldn’t find the video you referred in your comment above. I then emailed Dr. Rosenfeld and cc-ed to you. However, after I sent it I went back to search the Health videos and this is the video I found. Just wonder if this is the video you were looking for? But this is from Dr. Siegel. Please check it out and let us know.


Also, this morning when I replied to your comment I asked you to write to a wrong address. The correct address is housecall@fornews.com. I have corrected that address in my previous reply.

The properties of resveratrol are intriguing, and it may turn out to be a useful drug. But so far the studies on resveratrol are pre-clinical studies. We have no data on its effects in humans. Few people would want to take a proposed prescription drug that had not yet undergone clinical trials: why should resveratrol be any different? In the absence of clinical trials, resveratrol might be recommended for obese mice, but not for men.

Phil Sweeney April 14, 2011 at 10:59 am

In this same segment Dr R said tangerines were a great thing to eat if your diabetic… I am reading online today that this is a no no…who is right?

drt April 15, 2011 at 11:16 pm

@Phil. No. This video was from 2008, while the one in question was a recent video. I watched that video on Sunday morning either last week or the week before. Few moment ago, I went to search Sunday Housecall site but couldn’t find it. As far as I remember, Dr. Rosenfeld was citing a recent study saying that eating tangerine would benefit the diabetic people. You may write to housecall@foxnews.com, and ask the question directly to Dr. Rosenfeld.

Thanks for the comment.

Isabel moore May 12, 2011 at 7:40 am

Dr. Rosenfeld mentioned the new drug trigenta for diabetics on may 8on fox news Sunday house call. I cannot find info on the drug and neither can my dr. If possible also e mail my dr. With the info also. Drsmith@mdvip. Hope to hear about this drug. Love to watch Sunday house call.

drt May 18, 2011 at 9:11 pm

Dear Isabel,

I went to Foxnews Sunday Housecall site but could not find the video you mentioned since there were only 3 videos on that day listed, but none of them was related to this new drug. Like you, I could not find the information on the Internet for Trigenta. However, I found some related info here on a diabetic drug, Tradjenta, which probably was the correct name of the drug you mentioned above.

You will have a better luck if you email Dr. Rosenfeld directly at housecall@foxnews.com to ask for the video, and you may ask your doctor to check the references above for you. Good luck.

sandra bratter May 22, 2011 at 11:25 am

i am a healthy 70 year young woman. I excercise regularly, and do all the good things. However, i enjoy drinking 2 glasses of wine a night with dinner. How bad, is this for my health. I would love your opinion on this, since there is so many different opinions. thanking you in advance

drt May 22, 2011 at 3:16 pm

Dear Sandra,

Great to read your excellent health conditions. I wish when I get to 70 year young like you, I would still have a good health like you. :)

As for your question to Dr. Rosenfeld, I don’t think he will answer it since as I have mentioned it here so many times, this blog has nothing to do with Dr. Rosenfeld. I love to share the information from his Sunday Housecall Program with my readers. And that’s it!

You will have a better luck if you write to the email address I posted in my answer to Isabel Moore and others above. However, for your information, I have found some good references for you:

1. From American Heart Association, and
2. From Mayo Clinic.

Please check these links for your information, and please don’t forget to discuss it with your doctor. All these links could not replace your doctor.

Hope this help, and thanks for leaving comment on this site.

Dr Rosenfeld,
In watching your Fox program this morning you mentioned that blood pressure medication should be taken in the evening. My question is if the blood pressure medication is time released. does this make a difference in the time taken?
Thank you for your show, my family finds it extremely interesting

Dear Ron,

This is not Dr. Rosenfeld’s website. Please email Dr. Rosenfeld at the email address I mentioned in my answer to previous comments.

Thanks for visit.

Dr. Rosenfeld
Why are you not on channel 37 in Md. at 10:30 to 11:00.
We always watched you and have not seen you in that time period.
thank you
Mrs. Conway

drt November 6, 2011 at 7:26 pm

Dear Mrs. Conway,

As I have mentioned many times, this website doesn’t have any connection to Dr. Rosenfeld or Foxnews at all. Please email his at this email address: housecall@foxnews.com.

Just FYI, I have just visited the Housecall site and the last video I found was from Oct 9, 2011. Note that today is Nov 6, 2011.

Hope this help,

drt

drt November 13, 2011 at 10:44 am

This morning Foxnews has their Medical A Team in Sunday House Call slot, so I think Dr. Rosenfeld couldn’t make it again. I don’t know how long has this been going on. The last video I saw was from Oct. 9, 2011. I just hope to see Dr. Rosenfeld to be back soon.
