Resveratrol may lower cholesterol levels

This study followed 71 apparently healthy men and non-pregnant women, aged 20 to 65, who had just been diagnosed with imbalanced lipid profiles, including elevated total cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Those in the study had similar health status and history and didn’t smoke, drink, take lipid-lowering drugs, or supplements containing resveratrol. Participants took 100 mg of resveratrol per day or a placebo.

After two months, while the placebo group had not significantly improved, those taking resveratrol saw total cholesterol levels decline from 220.6 to an average of 201.4 mg per deciliter of blood (mg/dL) and triglycerides decrease from 166.7 to 133.4 mg/dL.
