Resveratrol Fights Influenza Virus

Of all the health benefits resveratrol provides, there’s yet one more (so far) that you need to know about. According to very recent research, this polyphenol taken in sufficient amounts is now understood to fight off viruses, particularly of the swine flu variety.

Resveratrol performs this notable task by inhibiting the expression of hemagglutinin and neuraminidase — key proteins in swine flu, and by also increasing the expression of interferon beta through Toll-like receptor 9. Interferon beta enhances the innate antiviral defense system, while Toll-like receptor 9 plays a fundamental role in pathogen recognition and the activation of innate immunity.
