A new study found Resveratrol worked better than a placebo to low total cholesterol in adults with high cholesterol. These findings are in agreement with another clinical trial showing a reduction in total cholesterol after supplementing with 250 mg/day of Resveratrol in participants with Type 2 Diabetes.
71 people participated in this study. Researchers took measurement of the participant’s Height, Weight, Waist Circumference, Blood Pressure, Total Cholesterol, HDL (high-density lipoprotein) Cholesterol, LDL (low-density lipoprotein) Cholesterol and Triglycerides at the onset of the study. Participants were given either 100 mg/day of Trans-Resveratrol or a placebo. The study lasted 2 months at which time post-intervention measurements of the above stated parameters were taken.
The 35 participants who supplemented with Resveratrol showed a significant reduction in both Triglyceride Concentrations and Total Cholesterol when compared to the group supplementing with the placebo. No significant change in HDL or LDL Cholestrol was seen with the Resveratrol supplementation. One of the study strengths was the participants had recently been diagnosed with High Cholesterol levels and had no previous treatment for lipid reductions.
Further studies are needed.
