I picked this report up on the news wire. A Hungarian study would suggest that a daily supplement of Resveratrol may control fat and sugar through interaction with insulin the hormone that produces both fat and sugar. Resveratrol is contained in red wine. Another glass of Bordeaux, perhaps?
Research Confirms Resveratrol’s Anti-Diabetic Potential

A daily dose of the polyphenol resveratrol may prove useful in the treatment and/or prevention of type 2 diabetes. Researchers from Hungary’s University of Pécs studied 19 people with type-2 diabetes. Participants were randomly assigned to take resveratrol supplements (10 mg/day) or a placebo for four weeks. Results showed that insulin resistance decreased significantly in the participants who received the resveratrol. The researchers concluded: “Whether resveratrol (or some of its future derivatives) becomes a useful tool in combating type 2 diabetes is difficult to tell, although the fact that recent studies (including the present study) have demonstrated that the efficacy of resveratrol at low doses might increase the possibility for its medicinal application.”
