The main purpose of this study is to determine if Resveratrol, a natural compound found in red grape skin, red wine, peanuts, mulberries, and certain other plants such as Japanese knotweed, can effect inflammatory biomarkers in women with a BMI equal to or greater than 30. This study is being conducted by Dr. Edward Sauter and Dr. James Mitchell at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Sciences in collaboration with Susan Raatz, PhD, MPH, RD at the Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center.
Participants will take either one or two 500 mg capsules of Resveratrol daily for 30 days, or one menstrual cycle, if premenopausal. A body fat composition assessment, blood, urine, breast fluid, and ductal lavage sample collection, will occur at baseline and the end visit. Questionnaires will be completed at baseline, midpoint, and end visit. Participants will be contacted once annually for life by phone, or letter, to complete a health update.
