Obesity is defined as a condition of chronic oxidative stress and chronic systemic inflammation, and it is associated with many health problems. Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound noted to exert beneficial effects on various diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, and nephropathy. The healthful effects of resveratrol are thought to be attributed to its antioxidant properties. In this interventional prospective randomized controlled trial, female patients diagnosed with obesity according to the WHO criteria and were randomly allocated to either control or resveratrol group. Resveratrol supplement showed a significant reduction in weight, body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC). From the above results, one can conclude that oral supplementation of resveratrol can improve Anthropometric parameters.
