    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. REFERENCE
