Red Wine Ingredient Resveratrol Mimics Calorie Restriction in Obese Men

The red wine ingredient resveratrol mimicked the metabolic effects of dieting and exercising in obese men, a small study found.

Although it didn’t lead to weight loss, a daily 150-milligram dose of resveratrol lowered blood pressure as well as blood glucose levels and liver fat in obese men after 30 days, Dutch researchers reported today in the journal Cell Metabolism.

“It seems to make you metabolically healthier without weight loss,” said study author Patrick Schrauwen of Maastricht University in the Netherlands. “I don’t think it’s a weight-loss drug.”
