Resveratrol May Help Reduce Perception of Pain in Postmenopausal Women

Menopause may cause joint pain that can affect the knees, shoulders, neck, elbows, or hands. According to a new study, supplementation with resveratrol may help reduce perception of pain and improve quality of life for postmenopausal women.

For their study, the researchers used data from The Resveratrol for Healthy Ageing in Women study, which included 125 healthy, postmenopausal women. Participants received 75 mg of resveratrol or a placebo daily for 12 months, after which they switched interventions for another 12 months. Questionnaires were administered at baseline, 12 months, and 24 months to evaluate pain perception, menopausal symptoms, sleep quality, and quality of life.

During supplementation with resveratrol, participants reported reduced composite pain scores, especially in overweight individuals. They also reported improvements in physical menopause symptoms and general quality of life. In addition, during supplementation with resveratrol, participants saw improvements in cerebrovascular response to hypercania. This indicates improvement in circulatory health.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Newcastle and the University of Southern Queensland. It was published on August 31, 2020 in The Journal of the North American Menopause Society.
