Can Red Wine Control Obesity?

Red Wine Researchers from the University of Ulm in Germany have taken what we already know about red wine and tested it on a different platform. Resveratrol is a compound found in grapes and red wine and has been apart of many different studies in the past. Within this study, Resveratrol has been found to reduce fat cells and could potentially be a future treatment for obesity, which seems to be sweeping our country today. Research from the past shows that resveratrol can protect lab mice from conditions like obesity when fed a high in calorie diet. This is possible because resveratrol literally creates the illusion that calories are being restricted.

The researchers from Germany wanted to take this research one step further. They wanted to test resveratrol to see if it could do the same mimicking for humans by changing the actual size of the fat cells. Within this study pure fat cells were used called preadipocytes. As these cells mature and expand they become nothing more than fat. In this study with only these cells in question, the researchers from Germany found that resveratrol could not only inhibit the growth of these pre-fat cells but also prevent them from becoming mature, pure fat cells. Also found in associated with this study was that resveratrol promoted the creation of a protein that has been known to decrease the risk of heart attack in obese men and women.

The leader of this research project stated in the recent publication that the resveratrol found in red wine can be used in the future as a way to treat or prevent obesity. With their research showing how resveratrol works directly with the fat cells causing the obesity, their results are quite promising for this chronic health condition and the many conditions that can be created from obesity. Right now unfortunately, there is not nearly enough information to promote long term treatment plans using resveratrol from red wine and therefore you are not being encouraged to include more red wine in your diet just yet.

Obesity is becoming a common problem in our society today and in order to avoid this condition altogether there are many steps that can be taken:

1. Be conscious of what you are putting into your body. Eating healthy foods and drinking a great deal of water is the key to a healthy diet.

2. Exercise at least 30 minutes per day, whether moderate or intense. This will keep your metabolism working sufficiently and strengthen your immune system as well.

3. Although there is nothing wrong with snacking throughout the day, choose wisely. Fresh fruit and veggies are smart choices.

4. Make sure to never skip meals. Eat smaller portions more frequently.

Make the decision today to start living a healthier life so obesity never becomes a problem you or one of your family members has to deal with. Remember that you lead by example and if you are close to someone who is obese do what you can to help them get back on track for the sake of their health.
