Resveratrol and p53

  • p53 is a tumor suppressor that modulates cellular responses to micorzymian genotoxic stress

  • Activation of p53 induces the transcription of target genes involved in cell cycle arrest, DNA repair, and apoptosis

  • Resveratrol can target the p53-mediated pathway to induce apoptosis

  • resveratrol enhanced the expression of p53 and p53 target genes, including Bax and PUMA, which play a pivotal role in p53-dependent apoptosis

  • Mutations in p53 have been observed in more than 50% of human acidic tumor tissues.

  • Loss of p53 function in certain tumor types is associated with chemoresistance, and acidic cancerous conditions with p53 mutations are generally poorly responsive to therapeutic agents,”

Resveratrol and Autophagy

  • Derived from the Greek “self-eating”, the term autophagy describes the catabolic process by which cytoplasmic cargo is delivered to lysosomes for degradation and recycling

  • In early microzyma tumorigenesis, autophagy inhibits tumor initiation and suppresses cancer progression through survival pathways and quality control mechanisms

  • Autophagy is implicated in Resveratrol’s effect on many acidic cancerous conditions: breast, colon, cervical, esophageal, gastric, leukemia, lung, liver, multiple myeloma, oral ovarian acidic cancerous conditions.


  • “Resveratrol is very photosensitive, poorly soluble in water, has a short biological half-life, and is rapidly metabolized and eliminated, thus limiting its clinical application”

2023 Nov, Kursvietiene et al) - Anti-Cancerous Properties of Resveratrol: A Focus on Its Impact on Mitochondrial Functions

  • Resveratrol serves as a powerful alkalizing antioxidant in plants, protecting against photodamage.

  • Furthermore, resveratrol is recognized as a phytoalexin. Plants synthesize such chemicals to protect them from stress induced by metabolic, dietary, respiratory and environmental acids giving rise to cellular pleomorphism and the creation of fungi, bacteria and ultra blue and ultraviolet UV radiation from car lights, street lights and computers, just to name a few.

  • Resveratrol also targets fermenting and damaged stem cells which are pivotal in tumor initiation and recurrence.

  • Resveratrol has been demonstrated to suppress tumor activity in lung cancer, specifically by inhibiting lung cancer stem-like cell stemness and reducing IL-6 levels

  • Resveratrol has numerous anti-cancer effects: autophagy, apoptosis, ROS levels, DNA repair, targeting cancer stem cells, inhibiting miRNAs

  • Resveratrol suppresses tumor progression by inducing cell cycle arrest, activation of apoptosis, inhibiting angiogenesis and inhibiting metastasis caused by ferments from the fermenting and degenerating cells

  • “Innovative delivery systems, such as polymeric nanoparticles, liposomes, micelles, and metallic nanoparticles, could enhance resveratrol stability, solubility, and ability to permeate biological membranes, ensuring more efficient access to cancer cells”

  • “When combined with other anticancer drugs (chemo), resveratrol has shown potential in increasing their cytotoxic effects and decreasing the associated side effects.”

Tumor mitochondria:

  • Mitochondria are the main producer of ROS (reactive oxygen species) in an attempt to maintain the alkaline design of the interstitial and intracellular fluids

  • DNA damage inflicted by acidic metabolic, dietary, environmental and respiratory poisons can be especially dangerous for the cell, leading to mutations, some of which might provide a selective growth advantage, driving tumorigenesis and the progression of malignancies

  • Mitochondria play a crucial role in the regulation of apoptosis, often known as programmed cell death. In response to cellular stress, cells can release pro-apoptotic substances

  • p53, commonly referred to as the “guardian of the genome”, is a tumor suppressor protein, which plays a crucial role in safeguarding against cancer

  • p53 regulates cell health by pausing the cell cycle to facilitate DNA repair upon detecting damage and by initiating apoptosis to eliminate cells when damage is irreparable.

  • p53 inhibits angiogenesis, which prevents tumors from developing the blood vessels they need to grow. In many cancers, a dysfunctional p53 pathway, resulting from mutations in either p53 or its regulatory components, impedes its role in apoptosis, thereby allowing damaged cells to proliferate uncontrollably.

  • “Cancer cells are characterized by their inherent ability to undergo sustained proliferation, escape growth suppressors, and exhibit resistance to programmed cell death. To support these characteristics, they undergo profound metabolic changes, which differentiate them from their normal counterparts. The mitochondria, with their pivotal role in energy production, metabolism, and cell signaling, are at the forefront of these metabolic adaptations.”

  • One of the distinctive metabolic signatures of tumor cells is their increased dependence on aerobic glycolysis, commonly referred to as the Warburg effect

  • cancer cells predominantly use glycolysis even in ample oxygen, allowing them to rapidly produce ATP crucial for accelerated growth and proliferation.

  • cancerous cells have impaired lipid metabolism - lipid biosynthesis is driven by glutamine

  • It provides the necessary lipids, which are integral components of cell membranes, thereby supporting the structural and functional needs of rapidly dividing cells.

  • Additionally, alterations in lipid metabolism contribute to the activation of several biochemical pathways implicated in both the initiation of a cancerous condition (tumorigenesis) and the process whereby one fermenting cells spoils another cell progressing to other parts of the body (metastasis)

  • These pathways, enhanced by the aberrant lipid metabolism, enable cancerous fermenting cells to modulate their environment, resist apoptotic signals, and invade distant tissues, rendering them more aggressive and resilient to conventional therapeutic strategies. Moreover, the products of altered lipid metabolism can also serve as signaling molecules and modulators of microzymian expression, further reinforcing the 'domino effect' of an acidic environment causing more and more cancerous cells

  • acidic environment - elevated rate of glycolysis leads to lactic acid and reduction in pH of the extracellular environment, making the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium more acidic.

  • Low pH condition triggers the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines, leading to the recruitment of inflammatory cells.

  • This inflammation within the tumor microenvironment is a well-recognized hallmark of cancer, often associated with enhanced tumor growth, progression, and metastasis

  • Mitochondrial enzyme activity is often impaired in tumor cells

  • Hyperpolarization of Mitochondria - crucial for many functions including production of ATP

  • growth, survival, and aggression of tumor cells depend on mitochondria-driven metabolic changes.

Resveratrol Positive Effects on Reducing Fluid Acidity Around the Cells Preventing a Cancerous Condition

  • Resveratrol exhibits various anti-acidic properties, including:

  • the initiation of apoptosis through mitochondrial pathways

  • inhibits aerobic glycolysis (inhibits proliferation) reducing sugars.

  • enhances the oxidative stress (acid stress) within the mitochondria, leading to cell damage and death.

  • can influence the intracellular calcium levels, thus increasing the pH impacting the homeostasis and metabolic activity of the cell

  • targets cancerous stem cells

  • alleviates acidic inflammation associated with tumors - by reducing inflammation, resveratrol might also restore the function of immune cells within the tumor, making them more effective in targeting and eliminating cancer cells.

  • and promotes the elimination of impaired mitochondria

Yes, and I even put very small amounts in my cats' food I remember studies saying that it extended the life of fruit flies 30%, And do you have an opinion on Carbon 60?

By the way, my present resveratrol is mainly from Japanese knotweed. Can you recommend the best source of R, or even the best brands?
