Future Diabetes Treatment May Use Resveratrol to Target the Brain

Resveratrol, a molecule found in red grapes, has been shown to improve diabetes when delivered orally to rodents. The brain plays a key role in mediating resveratrol’s anti-diabetic actions, potentially paving the way for future orally-delivered diabetes medications that target the brain.

“We know that sirtuins are expressed in parts of the brain known to govern glucose metabolism, so we hypothesized that the brain could be mediating resveratrol’s anti-diabetic actions,” said Roberto Coppari, PhD, of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

These findings may lead to new strategies in the fight against type 2 diabetes.
