Weight Loss

Studies have revealed high doses of resveratrol reduce the weight of laboratory mice fed high calorie diets.  To accomplish this, it is believed resveratrol activates the SIRT1enzyme which, in turn, improves the efficiency and increases the number of mitochondria in the body’s cells.   These improved and ‘increased’ mitochondria (as the body’s ‘power plants’) burn more energy than before the resveratrol was taken.  The result is that fat is consumed in skeletal muscles, the liver, and brown adipose tissue – promoting weight loss (as well as healthier livers and tissue).
