RESULTS: The resveratrol could increase the content of SOD and decrease the content of MDA in serum. There was no change in spleen index, but thymus index increased obvionsly. There was no change in the quantity of CD4+, but the quantity of CD8+ increased and the ratio of CD4+/CD8+ was decreased. The serum IL-6 and IL-8 level were decreased obviously.
CONCLUSION: The resveratrol possessed the function to anti-aging and the applications foreground in anyi-aging.
