Recently I attended a seminar where Dr. Carrie Louise Daenell lectured on the topic of Resveratrol. After attending a research conference, Dr.Daenell had shared some exciting research on the benefits of Resveratrol with her patients, who had then shared it with their friends. Her patients were reporting that some of their friends who had taken Resveratrol still ate foods high in carbohydrates and fat, but did not gain weight.
The research involved animal studies of twins where one was given Resveratrol and the other was not. Both were feed a high fat, high carbohydrate diet. The results were staggering. The twin given the Resveratrol was smaller, more active and did not develop the diseases associated with obesity, while its twin was sedentary, obese, looked aged, and had developed health conditions.
Dr. Daenell recommends Resveratrol for many reasons, but also encourages her patients to avoid high carbohydrate and processed high fat foods for maximum benefits. Much to her surprise some of these friends, who were not even her patients, called her office to ask for the product specifically. They were using the Resveratrol to avoid “getting fat” while still eating the foods they loved and keeping the weight off.
Some of the many benefits of Resveratrol include :
- Reduce appetite and cravings
- Better sleep
- Improve mood and concentration
- Lower blood sugar
- Improved fitness and lean mass ratio
- Increased energy levels and stamina

I concur with Dr. Daenell and often recommend Resveratrol to clients. However, my advice is to beware of your source of Resveratrol. Although red wine has been found to contain Resveratrol, it would take several glasses to reach a dose that would be effective. Always make sure to include regular exercise and healthy eating in any weight loss regimen.
