The prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is increasing around the world, in association with the progressive elevation in overweight and obesity. The accumulation of lipids in NAFLD patients contributes to the development of insulin resistance, inflammation and oxidative stress in hepatocytes, and alteration of blood lipids and glycaemia. There are currently no effective pharmacological therapies for NAFLD, although lifestyle and dietary modifications targeting weight reduction are among the prevailing alternative approaches. For this reason, new approaches should be investigated. The natural polyphenol resveratrol represents a potential new treatment for management of NAFLD due to anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Although preclinical trials have demonstrated promising results of resveratrol against NALFD, the lack of conclusive results creates the need for more trials with larger numbers of patients, longer time courses, and standardized protocols.
