Resveratrol, a phytoalexin, has gained much attention recently due to its effects on sirtuins. While the anti-cancer properties of resveratrol have been extensively investigated, the anti-adipogenic and osteogenic effects of resveratrol are also gaining considerable interest. The finding that resveratrol supplementation mimics caloric restriction prompted researchers to study the effects of resveratrol on lipid metabolism. Mesenchymal stem cells are the precursors for both adipocytes and… 

Figures from this paper

Phytoestrogenic Potential of Resveratrol by Selective Activation of Estrogen Receptor-α in Osteoblast Cells
TLDR
The estrogen mimetic action of resveratrol suggests its therapeutic potential as a bone anabolic agent for postmenopausal osteoporosis.
Resveratrol promotes osteogenesis and alleviates osteoporosis by inhibiting p53
TLDR
In vitro experiments indicated that MDM2-mediated p53 degradation induced osteoblast differentiation, and resveratrol could partially reverse p53-dependent inhibition of osteogenic differentiation, which suggest resver atrol may alleviate osteoporosis at least in part by modulating the MDM 2/p53 signaling pathway.
Resveratrol Inhibited Inflammation and Alveolar Bone Loss in Periodontitis
TLDR
It is found that resveratrol significantly suppressed the mRNA expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines, including IL-6, IL-1β and TNF-α in diseased periodontal tissue, implying resver atrol may be considered as new adjunctive therapy in ad- dition to traditional mechanical treatment for periodontitis.
Phytochemicals in obesity control
TLDR
Plant derived molecules or phytochemicals are blessed with strong anti-obesogenic, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties and may serve as a non toxic and cost-effective method to tackle obesity.
Antidiabetic Effects of Resveratrol: The Way Forward in Its Clinical Utility
TLDR
An update on the mechanisms of action and protection of resveratrol in diabetes mellitus is presented, challenges in its clinical utility are highlighted, and the way forward in translating the promising preclinical data to a possible antidiabetic drug in the near future is suggested.
Anti-adipogenic activity of an olive seed extract in mouse fibroblasts.
TLDR
Both the formation of fatty substances characteristic of adipogenesis, and the expression of the adipogenic PPARg and leptin genes are found to be inhibited by the prior addition of olive-seed extract polyphenols at a 50 mg/l concentration.
Anti-obesity activity of peanut sprout extract
TLDR
The anti-obesity activity of PSE appears to be associated with its inhibition of carbohydrate digestion enzymes, as it dose-dependently inhibited the activities of α-amylase and α-glucosidase but not pancreatic lipase while PSE did not have any inhibitory effect against lipid accumulation in differentiated 3T3L1 adipocyte.

Effect of resveratrol on fat mobilization
TLDR
Dietary supplementation of aged ovariectomized rats with a combination of resveratrol and vitamin D, quercetin, and genistein not only decreased weight gain but also inhibited bone loss, providing a large potential for using phytochemicals to target adipocyte adipogenesis, apoptosis, and lipolysis.
Resveratrol regulates human adipocyte number and function in a Sirt1-dependent manner.
TLDR
The data suggest that resveratrol influences adipose tissue mass and function in a way that may positively interfere with the development of obesity-related comorbidities.
Resveratrol induces apoptosis and inhibits adipogenesis in 3T3‐L1 adipocytes
TLDR
The results indicate that resveratrol may alter fat mass by directly affecting cell viability and adipogenesis in maturing preadipocytes and inducing apoptosis in adipocytes and thus may have applications for the treatment of obesity.
Phytochemicals and regulation of the adipocyte life cycle.
Combined effects of genistein, quercetin, and resveratrol in human and 3T3-L1 adipocytes.
TLDR
Results show that lower concentrations of combined treatments with several natural compounds may be useful for treatments for obesity through the suppression of adipogenesis and enhanced adipocyte apoptosis.
Dietary polyphenols: focus on resveratrol, a promising agent in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and control of glucose homeostasis.
Identification of a novel proapoptotic function of resveratrol in fat cells: SIRT1‐independent sensitization to TRAIL‐induced apoptosis
TLDR
It is demonstrated for the first time that resveratrol enhances TNF‐related apoptosis‐inducing ligand (TRAIL)‐ or CD95‐induced apoptosis of human preadipocytes in a highly synergistic manner and has important implications for its use in metabolic and age‐related diseases.
Dose-Dependency of Resveratrol in Providing Health Benefits
TLDR
At higher dose, resveratrol has pro-apoptotic actions on healthy cells, but can kill tumor cells, while at lower dose, it can be very useful in maintaining the human health whereas at higher doses, res veratrol is not as useful.
