Today is World Diabetes Day

  • The number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014
  • In 2015, an estimated 1.6 million deaths were directly caused by diabetes.
  • Another 2.2 million deaths were attributable to high blood glucose in 2012.
  • Over the past 30 years, the number of people with diabetes in the US has quadrupled, and it has been predicted that this could increase to as many as one in every three adults by 2050
  • Up to 70% of cases of type 2 diabetes could be prevented through the adoption of a healthy lifestyle

Veri-te™ Resveratrol & Diabetes

There are over 500 published studies, including multiple clinical trials, that investigate the effects of resveratrol on blood glucose control and metabolism.


Clinical studies show that resveratrol:
  • Helps control blood glucose levels
  • May improve insulin sensitivity
  • May reduce risk factors in prediabetes
  • Possesses an excellent safety profile and no observed drug interactions
