Supplements of Red Wine Antioxidant Don't Help Obese Men, Aarhus University Study

Despite showing early promise in some animal studies, supplements of resveratrol, an antioxidant found aplenty in red wine, did not improve insulin sensitivity or heart health in obese men, a small trial found. Researchers found no difference in insulin sensitivity -- the measure of how well the body uses the hormone insulin -- in 24 obese but otherwise healthy men who took daily 1,500-milligram doses of resveratrol compared to other men who took an inactive placebo for four weeks.
