Does resveratrol improve insulin signaling in chronically ischemic myocardium?

BACKGROUND Resveratrol is a naturally occurring polyphenol believed to be cardioprotective. We previously demonstrated that resveratrol improves insulin signaling and glucose metabolism in liver and skeletal muscle of swine with metabolic syndrome. Although resveratrol has metabolic benefits in peripheral tissues, its effect on insulin signaling in ischemic… CONTINUE READING
