Resveratrol is an important phenolic phytochemical from the therapeutic perspective. It has therapeutic impacts over wide range of diseases, especially the ones related to oxidative stress. Resveratrol, being primarily a potent anti-oxidant phytochemical, has significant impact against major diseases as inflammatory disorders, diabetes, and cancer. In the current review article, we intend to highlight the molecular aspects of the mechanism of action of resveratrol against major diabetic implications, namely, retinopathy and neuropathy. Both these diabetic implications are among the first fallouts of chronic hyperglycaemia. Resveratrol, via multiple molecular pathways, tend to attenuate and reverse these deformity and other disease-causing implications.
