Natural compound prevents diabetesSeptember 4th, 2011 - 2:05 pm ICT by IANS
Toronto, Sep 4 (IANS) Resveratrol, a natural compound found in grapes, mulberries and peanuts is effective against diabetes, claims a study.
Resveratrol has been shown to extend the lifespan of many species.
Human offsprings that have trouble developing in the womb have a higher risk of developing metabolic problems later in life, the journal Diabetes reports.
University of Alberta researchers Jason Dyck and Sandra Davidge found that giving resveratrol to young offsprings of lab rats after weaning, actually prevented the development of certain symptoms of diabetes.
