Effect of resveratrol on glucose control and insulin sensitivity

Effect of resveratrol on glucose control and insulin sensitivity

A meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the effects of resveratrol on glucose control and insulin sensitivity.

Resveratrol consumption significantly reduced fasting glucose, insulin, glycated haemoglobin, and insulin resistance levels in participants with diabetes. There was no significant effect of resveratrol on glycaemic measures on nondiabetic participants.

Resveratrol significantly improved glucose control and insulin sensitivity in persons with diabetes but did not affect glycaemic measures in nondiabetic persons. Additional high-quality studies are needed to further evaluate the potential benefits of resveratrol in humans.
