Resveratrol Offers Plenty of Benefits For Weight Loss

Published:January 11th, 2011

A new study has unveiled the health benefits of resveratrol for regulating insulin sensitivity and energy. The results of the study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry are interesting for people interested in weight loss.

Resveratrol is a potent polyphenol which is a major compound found in grapes and red wine and it has been already associated with the French paradox, the low incidence of obesity among the French who still have high fat diets.

Adiponectin is a hormone released by the fat cells and its expression is stimulated by resveratrol. Adiponecting and resveratrol have been shown to display anti-obesity, anti-insulin resistance and anti-aging properties. Adiponectin can stimulate appetite, helping control blood sugar levels. The level of this hormone is lower in obese persons, but research showed that mice fed with a high fat diet but with high levels of adiponecting are more resistant to obesity.

More research in how resveratrol can stimulate the fat hormone can lead to developing new treatment options for obesity, diabetes and other age-related illnesses.

Resveratrol has been proven to have plenty of health benefits, assisting in fighting diseases brought about by obesity.

Resveratrol is naturally found in grapes and red wine but it is also an ingredient of supplements that are offered to assist weight loss.
