I take resveratrol and vitamin D every day

They appear to block the production of fat cells, even when animals are fed a high fat diet:

The study also showed that in mice fed a high-fat diet, resveratrol improved resistance to weight gain. Also, supplementation with the combination of vitamin D and the phytochemicals resveratrol, quercetin and genistein in aged rats with their ovaries removed not only resulted in decreased weight gain, but also improved bone health.

I take 600 mg of resveratrol and 5000 U of vitamin D daily.  I do not recommend you taking that dose of vitamin D without checking with your doctor and gettings blood levels measured.

  1. Is Resveratrol ok to take?

  2. I share my experiences and medical literature, but I am not practicing medicine. I recommend seeing your own physician to make medical decisions.
