  1. OMG………’maybe’ they have found an explanation!! as I could work 24/7 before I had 8 female surgeries…..NOW I cant vacuum 1 room without falling on the sofa in pain……..for days!! and THIS would mean there IS a ‘diagnostic test” for Fibromyalgia !! yeh……..

    1. nothing relative to the CR/resveratrol acteiatvd pathway involving the SIR1 and FOXO genes. Can you point me to any research citation that supports your comncern? My normal habit, incidentally, is to exercise 6 hours after and 4 hours before taking antioxidants.
