Recent studies have pointed out that drinking a little red wine keeps your heart healthy and fit. Over time, experts have also discovered that a certain substance called Resveratrol which is found in red wine could help one lose weight.
While Resveratrol indeed helps you get rid of fat by targeting a special protein which is responsible for maintaining the normal blood sugar levels in our body, it too cannot be denied that increasing your wine intake in the hope of quick loss could lead to major health complications!
Alcohol shouldn’t be used as a loss solution for a number of reasons. Firstly, a high alcohol intake could damage your liver badly. Secondly, it is well known that people who drink alcohol regularly end up adding a lot more extra pounds to their body; so you can see, with this loss method you would gain more fat than lose! So is there any other way out?
While you cannot take Resveratrol in the form of red wine, you can certainly consume it in the form of supplements. Believe it or not, most loss supplements contain Resveratrol is some form or other, along with other fat burning ingredients!
Make sure that the supplement you are buying contains at least twenty milligrams of Resveratrol, as that is the minimum amount of Resveratrol you need to consume in order to benefit from it.
In order to understand how Resveratrol helps us with loss, it is important to understand the role of blood sugar with regards to gain. If your blood sugar level is high, your insulin level would also go up in order to lower the blood sugar level. This in turn would make you hungrier. And if you eat fatty and sugary foods in order to fill your stomach, you would soon become hungry as before!
Resveratrol basically reduces our blood sugar level which in turn reduces the insulin level. When this happens, our appetite is also reduced and we eat less than before. With reduced food intake, loss is inevitable!
When you take Resveratrol in the form of supplements as I suggested above, you not only keep the fat away but also protect yourself against harmful diseases such as cancer. Not many people know that there are special supplements which contain both Resveratrol and turmeric as ingredients, and turmeric’s job is to protect you from cancer and other harmful diseases!
