Resveratrol (RV) is a natural phenol found in red grapes, mulberries, peanuts, wines and tea, and can be extracted from red wine during fermentation of grape skin. The mechanism by which RV exerts favorable effects is related to induction of genes for oxidative phosphorylation and mitochondrial biogenesis. It has been reported that RV plays a role as an antinflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, and exerts anticancer activities through many different mechanisms. Patients with higher anxiety traits, depression, and fatigue showed a distinct metabolic profile, indicative of a different energy homeostasis, hormonal metabolism and gut microbial activity. The daily consumption of RV resulted in a significant modification in the microbial metabolism, with potential long-term health consequences. A human intervention study indicated that consumption of RV increased the number of Enterococcus, Prevotella, and Bacterioides uniformis. Several beneficial effects have been observed in human beings, but others studies are mandatory to continue with the scientific research in this field. Indeed, new knowledge concerning the “Health Benefits of Resveratrol” could enable the development of novel functional foods or nutraceuticals, incorporating resveratrol, suitable for preventing or treating diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, dislipemia, insulin resistance and diabetes, liver diseases, and other disorders.
