Obesity is characterized by an abnormal accumulation of fat (adipose) tissue and is associated with chronic inflammation. Against this background, the present study investigated the anti-inflammatory effects of resveratrol in human fat tissue. The experiments were performed on human adipose tissue explants and highlighted the anti-inflammatory effects of resveratrol, thus suggesting health benefits for obese individuals. Further details can be found in the study.
