Resveratrol and diabetes
The mitochondria are the energy factories of the cell. In the lab, researchers showed that in early-stage
diabetes elevated blood sugar levels damage the mitochondria in the smallest blood vessels and arteries,
reducing circulation. Doctors introduced resveratrol into the cells and found resveratrol protected against
mitochondrial damage, suggesting resveratrol may delay or prevent cardiovascular impairments and
normalize mitochondrial function.
