Resveratrol Promotes Brown Fat Formation

Red wine, grape seeds, blueberries and strawberries contain a powerful chemical called resveratrol that prevents cell damage, increases HDL (good cholesterol) and prevents blood clot formation and chronic inflammation. Studies on mice and rats found that resveratrol increased life span, prevented cancer and cardiovascular disease, and improved blood sugar regulation. Chinese researchers, in a study on mice, found that resveratrol promoted brown fat formation, which results in more calories dissipated as heat instead of stored as fat. Resveratrol has powerful effects on metabolism that could protect the body from premature aging. Resveratrol might be the Fountain of Youth among athletic food supplements. The researchers concluded that it was better to get resveratrol from foods rather than supplements. (International Journal Obesity, 39: 967-976, 2015)
