It has become common knowledge that red wine in moderation can do much to stop the effects of aging as well as make our bodies healthier. But researchers continue to find positive effects of consuming red wine on a regular basis whether as part of your meals or just a glass in the evening.
The naturally occurring molecule, resveratrol, is the key to all of these benefits and now research is showing that it can help treat diabetes. A study conducted in a new UT Southwestern Medical Center has found that red wine and it’s resveratrol can offer some protection from diabetes. The study monitored insulin levels in mice who were on a high fat diet with and without resveratrol. Those with had reduced insulin levels while those in the control group continued to have high levels.
While still more research is needed to see how this can be used to help those who suffer from diabetes and to even prevent diabetes in new patients things do look promising. While research continues, though enjoying a glass of fine red wine is still beneficial in other ways. Those who enjoy a glass of fine wine should continue to use their wine accessories to enjoy the excellent vintages that are in their cellar.
