In a recent article in Diabetes Forecast, Resveratrol has been found helpful in several ways for those with Diabetes. In a summary of the article from Endocrinology: “Resveratrol, a chemical found in red wine, has received a lot of attention because of studies that suggest it (or related drugs) could someday help treat diabetes and other diseases. Yet scientists aren’t sure how resveratrol imparts its benefits. Now, a study has found that resveratrol’s anti-diabetic activity may come straight from the top: the brain. Lab mice on an all-you-can-eat diet tend to develop diabetes. But when researchers delivered resveratrol directly into the brains of mice with diet-induced diabetes, their blood glucose levels dropped regardless of diet or weight. The findings suggest that resveratrol may work by interacting with receptors in the brain that control insulin and glucose levels.” This is from Endocrinology, December 2009
In another article from an Australian researcher from Queensland, Dr.Lindsay Brown of the University of Queensland School of Biomedical Sciences, and colleagues conclude that resveratrol may help protect against a wide array of diseases and conditions. “The breadth of benefits is remarkable – cancer prevention, protection of the heart and brain from damage, reducing age-related diseases such as inflammation, reversing diabetes and obesity, and many more” said Brown.
This is good news for those with Diabetes since resveratrol is available in natural supplements like Shaklee’s Vivix Cellular Anti-Aging Tonic. Shaklee Scientists sourced the purest and most potent natural resveratrol. In fact, this extract’s resveratrol content is no less than 98%, and the amount of resveratrol found in Vivix is guided by the latest scientific studies and emerging research. Also, Shaklee processes the resveratrol in such a way as to not have the bad side affect of diarrhea often associated with some resveratrol products.
