I have long known the healing properties of grapes, particularly red, which contains resveratrol, but now it turns out that losing weight is also.
Resveratrol, a treasure hidden in the grape
Although not yet the right season to find the ‘ Grape research on the benefits of the fruit of the vine does not stop. To the already known properties of resveratrol, a compound anti-oxidant present in the skin of the grape’, we must also add the ability to lose weight. For claims are researchers at the University of Texas Science Center in San Antonio (USA) in a research journal published by the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
Benefits for type 2 diabetes
In recent years the research on resveratrol present in the skin of the grape (especially the red grape) has increased considerably. In addition to having potent anti-oxidant capacity fundamental to slow aging, recent studies have shown its beneficial effects in combating the onset of diabetes type 2.
Proper functioning of metabolism:-
Since the latter result, U.S. researchers have investigated how resveratrol affects the metabolism . From the analysis so far conducted in laboratory models, it was discovered that it is able to regulate the production of adiponectin, a hormone that controls the consumption of lipids and has been shown to be deficient in people who should lose weight .
In future, new drugs derived from?
Thus resveratrol help our bodies free from excess fat modulate the activity of adiponectin. Not only that, the study also confirmed once again the anti-aging and anti-diabetic molecule of this valuable anti-oxidant. As said Liu Feng, an author of the study, “These results should be of great interest to all those who are obese or suffer from diabetes and should also provide important information for the development of new drugs.”
