Resveratrol (50 mg)
- Powerful antioxidant capabilities
- Counteracted negative results of high fat diets in mice studies.
- Current research shows potential benefits for those suffering from symptoms of diabetes and age-related conditions.
- Increased insulin sensitivity in mice studies.
For years scientists have pondered the "French Paradox" – how the French could eat a high fat diet yet have low incidence of heart disease. The answer may in part be a newly identified compound: resveratrol. Resveratrol is a naturally occurring substance found in grapes, peanuts, some vines and Japanese knotweed, a popular plant used for years in Asian medicine. The potential benefits of resveratrol for the human population are still being explored.
Researchers at Harvard Medical School and the National Institute on Aging found that resveratrol in high doses let mice eat a high fat diet yet avoid health problems commonly associated with obesity.
The liver and other systems of these obese mice remained healthy and fat-related deaths dropped 31% for mice fed resveratrol.
Another study showed less weight gain in mice fed resveratrol, greater physical endurance, and better insulin sensitivity.
Resveratrol also demonstrated the ability to increase life span in yeast, mice, and certain fish.
Further research and study is needed before specific health benefits can be established.
Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant. One scientist referred to it as "one of the best free radical scavengers." This may account for its beneficial effects. Free radicals are produced naturally by the body and can damage healthy cells.
Resveratrol shows promise for a wide variety of human health problems, and many clinical trials are currently underway to further explore its possibilities.
