Study Says Resveratrol Helps Prevent Formation Of Fatty Tissue

May 10, 2011: 11:22 AM EST
A study that looked at effects of the polyphenol resveratrol on adipose tissue found that resveratrol's influence in reducing body fat is at least partly due to its capacity to reduce the uptake of fatty acid in circulating triacylglycerols as well as in de novo lipogenesis. The researchers fed the rats a fattening diet and, after six weeks, white adipose tissues were scrutinized and lipoprotein lipase activity was evaluated. There was no difference in final body weight between the groups of rats, but the group treated with resveratrol showed significantly less adipose tissue. Resveratrol also reduced lipogenic enzyme activity, and that of heparin-releasable lipoprotein lipase.
