Hi Carl,
I used resveratrol before but stopped after having read a few articles stating that it blunts the creation of satellite cells.
Do you have a take on that?

It may come down to a matter of the dosage of resveratrol:

two things.. we now know this about all antioxidants and their potential ability to derail muscle gains and endurance adaptation.. so yes.. even Vit C does this in high enough doses. More is not better when it comes to antioxidants.. and while the antioxidant potential of resveratrol can have a negative effect on muscle gains it's not through downregulation of mTOR and this is an important one because blunting mTOR via a downreg of ALL growth factors will lead to some of the advanced aging issues seen with muscle wasting IMHO.. but yes you are right too much resveratrol can have a negative effects via the ROS pathway. Thank you for posting this!

I will have to look into this. Have you seen the study showing this? I'll dig for it and get back to this thread.
