Resveratrol, ein in Weintrauben und deshalb auch im Rotwein vorkommender Pflanzenstoff, ist neuerdings als vielversprechendes Adipositas-Medikament in aller Munde. Dieses Molekül soll in der Lage sein, die Effekte einer verminderten Kalorienzufuhr molekular zu imitieren. Da eine Kalorienrestriktion beim Menschen in erster Linie zu einem Abbau der Fettdepots führt, war die Idee schnell geboren, das Molekül zur Behandlung von Überge-wicht und Adipositas zu nutzen. In dieser Übersichtsarbeit wird das Molekül Resveratrol vorgestellt und seine anti-obesogene Wirkung kritisch beleuchtet.


Resveratrol, a natural plant product found in grapes and in red wine, is currently discussed as a new obesity treatment. It is able to mimic the molecular effects of caloric restriction. In humans, caloric restriction primarily leads to a reduction of white adipose tissue depots. Therefore it seemed obvious that resveratrol might exert anti-obesity effects. In this review, we want to introduce this interesting molecule and will discuss its beneficial effects on obesity.
