resveratrol -vs- type-2 diabetes
“The primary aims of the study were to examine the effect of resveratrol on skeletal muscle SIRT1 expression……in subjects with Type 2 diabetes mellitus.”
“…studies indicate that resveratrol increases SIRT1 expression that stimulates PGC1 activity. Sub- sequent upregulation of AMPK and GLUT4 expression are associated with improved insulin sensitivity in peripheral tissues.”

“10 subjects….randomized in a double-blind….”

“3g resveratrol or placebo daily for 12 weeks”

“There was a significant increase in both SIRT1 expression and p-AMPK to AMPK expression ratio in the resveratrol group compared with the placebo group.”

“In patients with type-2 diabetes, treatment with resveratrol regulates energy expenditure through increased skeletal muscle SIRT1 and AMPK expression. These findings indicate that resveratrol may have beneficial exercise-mimetic effects in patients with type-2 diabetes.”
