Resveratrol is a kind of polyphenolic antioxidant. It is mainly found in fruits such as grapes, berries, and peanuts. It is an antiviral substance secreted by plants and used to fight trauma and bacteria. Infection, ultraviolet light and other external pressures can be said to be the patron saint of plants.
1.Regulate blood sugar and prevents diabetes mellitus
In a small study, it was found that for people who are overweight, taking resveratrol daily can improve their blood sugar level and insulin concentration.
A recent comprehensive analysis also found that (including 11 cases, a total of 388 people), for diabetic patients, resveratrol can improve fasting blood sugar, insulin, glycosylated hemoglobin. The study also mentioned that the improvement of these blood glucose markers was not found in non-diabetic patients.
2.Reduce cardiovascular risk
Cardiovascular disease, commonly referred to as heart disease, is mainly caused by insufficient blood flow leading to hypoxia in heart tissue. The reason why cardiovascular disease is terrible is that it has no symptoms for most of the time, and once it is attacked, it has a mortality rate of up to 30%, which is unpredictable.
The experiment found that taking resveratrol (100 mg daily) can improve vascular health indicators: endothelial cell diastolic function, but other blood values have not changed. Taking it can not only significantly improve a variety of inflammatory factors, but also reduce the factors that cause thrombosis, or licensed as a gold component in the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
3. Resveratrol powder can reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease by preventing plaque formation.
The main pathological feature of Alzheimer's disease is the extracellular extracellular amyloid deposits, which cause abnormal cell function and necrosis. It is characterized by the destruction of brain cells. Over time, it is easy to cause memory and cognitive impairment, and even self-care can not take care of themselves. In animal experiments, it was found that administration of resveratrol to experimental rats reduced the average lifespan and reduced the polymerization of type B amyloid and tau protein, which protected nerve cells and slowed cognitive deterioration.
In a small study, it was found that taking resveratrol (200 mg daily for 26 weeks) not only improved blood sugar metabolism and body fat, but also helped improve memory.
4. Prevent ulcerative colitis
Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease. The main clinical symptoms include hemorrhagic diarrhea and abdominal cramps.
It is currently believed that oxidative stress and free radicals play an important role in the cause and deterioration of the disease, and resveratrol has become an objective of many researches because of its excellent active oxygen scavenging ability. Taking resveratrol (500 mg daily) in addition to helping to lower the concentration of malondialdehyde, it also enhances the body's total antioxidant capacity and superoxide dismutase
