Resveratrol can give someone some nifty advantages and it can help with controlling diabetes. Diabetes is a condition in which someone's body has a ton of sugar which is glucose and is unable to properly use insulin. There are two different types of diabetes, type 1 is when the pancreas is unable to create insulin and is most common in children. Type 2 is usually when the pancreas produces way too much insulin and the body has a hard time processing it. There are a variety of traits that may increase the risk of someone getting this disease. One of the biggest is unfortunately hereditary meaning that if all of your parents and grandparents had problems with their blood sugar levels than there is a bigger risk that you're going to have a problem with it as well. Malnutrition is also a big contributor to diabetes. Basically eating tons of refined carbs and not enough fiber and protein is not good. Think about it, our bodies are not used to all the sugar that we throw at it every single day. Usually throughout time we ate sugar that had fiber in it such as apple. Age is another fact that can increase the chance of getting this disease. It's a known fact that the older someone gets the more the body breaks down and there is more of a chance of something breaking, just look at a car. Of course if you take care of it just like a 1990 bmw I have with over 300 thousand miles it can last much longer than some people think. Resveratrol is a nutrient that is created from plants that protects them from various toxins and funguses. It is in the skin of grapes, some peanuts, raspberries and a few other foods. This substance has been known to activate a gene called SIRT1 which can help with insulin secration and creating the insulin. Since diabetes is all about the problem of creating too much or not enough insulin as you can see this can help. Studies with mice show that even low levels of this nutrient can assist with their blood sugar levels. Also this nutrient is anti-inflammatory and anti-free radical. This means that is helps prevent damage in cells when it comes to someone's body. This can of course help with diabetes, heart disease, cancer and a number of other problems. Resveratrol has gotten a lot of buzz since it has been in the shows Sixty Minutes, Oprah and some others. Because of this many companies are trying to cash in on the hype and there are some good ones and some bad ones.
