I will sum up this study up to make it easy to understand. Resveratrol helps in the required steps for your body to burn fat. XCAP’s product is called AA Resveratrol Blast.
Here is a list of other things that AA Resveratrol Blast has been shown to improve in studies.
Up-regulation of Adiponectin by resveratrol: the essential
roles of the Akt/FOXO1 and AMP-activated protein kinase
signaling pathways and DsbA-L.

OBJECTIVE: The natural polyphenol resveratrol (RSV) displays a wide spectrum of health
beneficial activities, yet the precise mechanisms remain to be fully elucidated. Here we show that
RSV promotes the multimerization and cellular levels of adiponectin in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.
METHODS AND RESULTS: The stimulatory effect of RSV was not affected by knocking out
Sirt1, but was diminished by suppressing the expression levels of DsbA-L, a recently identified
adiponectin-interactive protein that promotes adiponectin multimerization. Suppression of the Akt
signaling pathway resulted in an increase in the expression levels of DsbA-L and adiponectin. On
the other hand, knocking out FOXO1 or suppressing the activity or expression levels of the AMP-
activated protein kinase (AMPK) down-regulated DsbA-L and adiponectin. The stimulatory effect
of RSV on adiponectin and DsbA-L expression was completely diminished in FOXO1-suppressed
and AMPK-inactivated 3T3-L1 adipocytes.
CONCLUSIONS: Taken together, our results demonstrate that RSV promotes adiponectin
multimerization in 3T3-L1 adipocytes via a Sirt1-independent mechanism. In addition, we show
that the stimulatory effect of RSV is regulated by both the Akt/FOXO1 and the AMPK signaling
pathways. Last, we show that DsbA-L plays a critical role in the promoting effect of RSV on
adiponectin multimerization and cellular levels.
