RESVERATROL

Resveratrol prevents precursors to fat cells from becoming mature fat cells

Resveratrol, a compound found in grapes and red wine, which has previously been found to prevent obesity in mice on a high-fat diet, prevents precursors to human fat cells from becoming mature fat cells according to new research from the University of Ulm in Ulm, Germany that was presented at The Endocrine Society's 90th Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California, USA on June 17th, 2008.

"In this cell-based study, they found that resveratrol inhibited the pre-fat cells from increasing and prevented them from converting into mature fat cells."

The study used human fat cell precursors, called preadipocytes. Read the entire article | Email this article

RESVERATROL

Resveratrol reduces chemicals linked to obesity-related disorders such as diabetes and heart disease

Resveratrol, a compound found in grapes and red wine, reduces production of certain chemicals in the body called cytokines -- interleukins 6 and 8 -- that are linked to the development of obesity-related disorders, such as diabetes and coronary artery disease according to a cell-based study from the University of Ulm in Ulm, Germany that was presented at The Endocrine Society's 90th Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California, USA on June 17th, 2008.

RESVERATROL

Resveratrol hinders fat storage

Resveratrol, a compound found in grapes and red wine, stimulates production of a chemical known as adiponectin, which decreases the risk of heart attack according to a cell-based study from the University of Ulm in Ulm, Germany that was presented at The Endocrine Society's 90th Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California, USA on June 17th, 2008.

RESVERATROL

‘Resveratrol has anti-obesity properties’ notes a German researcher

"Resveratrol has anti-obesity properties by exerting its effects directly on the fat cells," said Pamela Fischer-Posovszky, PhD, a researchers at Ulm University's Diabetes and Obesity Unit located in Ulm, Germany who presented findings of a her new study at The Endocrine Society's 90th Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California, USA on June 17th, 2008.

"Thus, resveratrol might help to prevent development of obesity or might be suited to treating obesity." Read the entire article | Email this article

RESVERATROL

Resveratrol safe in doses up to 5,000 mg per day

A single dose of resveratrol up to 5,000 mg, a compound found in grapes and red wine that has anti-obesity properties, did not cause any serious side effects when given to humans noted Pamela Fischer-Posovszky, PhD, a researchers at Ulm University's Diabetes and Obesity Unit located in Ulm, Germany who presented findings of a her new study at The Endocrine Society's 90th Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California, USA on June 17th, 2008.

However, she also noted that another study "theorized that resveratrol may stimulate the growth of human breast cancer cells, possibly because resveratrol's chemical structure is similar to a phytoestrogen, an estrogen-like substance found in some plants."
