Reservatrol is being touted ast the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant of the past 5 years. However, as with any supplement, there is both appropriate and inappropriate usage. A recent study in the American Journal of Pathology by researcher Ikuo Tsundo at LSU found that mice with multiple sclerosis have more severe symptoms than those without. This does not mean that reservatrol promotes multiple sclerosis or can cause it. Interestingly, in other diseases which were caused by viruses such as Epstein-Barr (monosclerosis), reservatrol appeared to improve symptoms. The main message here: in patients who already have multiple sclerosis- probably best to hold off on taking reservatrol.
