Resveratrol attenuates inflammation

Dietary supplementation of resveratrol attenuates chronic colonic inflammation in mice.

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of resveratrol on colitis (inflammation of the colon). 6-week-old mice were randomly assigned to two dietary groups: one receiving a standard diet and the other one a diet enriched with resveratrol. After 30 days acute colitis was artificially induced. The results showed that the resveratrol-enriched diet reduced inflammation. The authors therefore concluded that resveratrol represents a novel approach to the treatment of colitis. Further details can be found in the study.
