Many people have heard about the health supporting effects of red wine.

Its other active ingredients - grape seed extract and coenzyme Q10 - work in synergy to complement its cell protecting effects.

Health-promoting properties of red wine

bottle with red wine and grapes
According to an old popular wisdom, one cup daily of red wine is not harmful. On the contrary, it is very beneficial to our health. In the early 1990s, this wisdom caused a significant stir when the expression “French paradox”became known in medicine. This expression refers to the observation that the incidence of cardiovascular diseases among French people living in certain areas is much lower than among people living in countries of similar development, leading a similar way of life and consuming similar amounts of saturated fats. The explanation lies not in the genes, but mainly in the wine consumption habits characteristic of these regions.

The beneficial effects are not due to the alcohol itself, but the polyphenol compounds found in red wine, which offer powerful antioxidant protection against the cell damaging effects of free radicals, support blood vessels and possess anti-aging effects as well.

Trans resveratrol

The most well-known polyphenol compound found in red wine is resveratrol and among its 4, naturally occurring chemical forms is trans-resveratrol, which possesses the best biological activity. It is produced in the largest amounts in vine-shoot and the peel of grapes which explains its presence in red wine as well (per 1 liter of red wine exists 2-3 mg/l on average). The phenomenon French paradox has excited the interest of scientists and as a result today resveratrol is considered to be one of the most promising natural antioxidants. Trans resveratrol also has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system by supporting the proper blood supply to blood vessels, inhibiting lipid oxidation, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) fraction.

Trans-resveratrol and the risk of heart disease

As cardiovascular diseases are among the leading causes of death, the interest of science has turned towards active agents protecting the health of the heart. One of the highly promising compounds of recent years is resveratrol, which is a natural component of certain vegetables and fruits. It can be found in hazelnut or cocoa but its best known source is red wine as the skin of red grapes is among its richest sources.
grape in the orchardIt was already known that resveratrol is beneficial for the health of the heart but a recently conducted Spanish study provided astonishing results. The study involved people who had a higher risk of developing cardiovascular diseases (e.g. due to diabetes or high cholesterol levels). One group took placebo without any active agents, the second group received a grape-based dietary supplement high in resveratrol and the third one was given grape-based dietary supplement without any resveratrol in addition to the appropriate treatments (e.g. treatment to reduce blood sugar or cholesterol levels). The subjects were followed for one year and in the end the results surprised even the doctors. The examination results of people receiving dietary supplement containing resveratrol were significantly lower regarding inflammation and arteriosclerosis than those of the control group, which shows that in their case the risk of heart diseases decreased. An all this was achieved without side effects! This indicates that dietary supplements containing resveratrol can also have a recognised role in therapies to prevent heart diseases!

This study also supports the fact that the utilisation of resveratrol is influenced by the way it is taken in the body. It can be absorbed best from fruits and wine as it can be found in its natural medium in them; however, it is extremely difficult to consume such a quantity of these sources that provides an effective amount of resveratrol. In modern dietary supplements, resveratrol is not added in itself but “in a near natural state”, for example together with grape pips, thus ensuring the most effective possible absorption and utilisation.

glass of red wine on a barrelSeveral animal studies have ended with the conclusion that the life span of subjects receiving a high energy content diet rich in fats and supplemented with resveratrol was much longer than that of animals also living on a high energy diet but not receiving resveratrol. (Furthermore, it approached normal diet!) Resveratrol did not only directly impact life span but also indirectly as it could effectively reduce such diet-related consequences as the development of fatty liver or diabetes. Probably it is this effect that we can see in case of the French as the number of patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases is much lower in their case despite their diet rich in saturated fats, thanks to the protective effect of resveratrol in wine.

We have only highlighted a few studies here, including the most recent one, which support the beneficial impact of resveratrol on the health of the cardiovascular system but this list is by far not complete. If you would also like to do something to protect your heart, take resveratrol into consideration in addition to a balanced diet! Using CaliVita®’s preparation Resveratrol Plus of excellent quality, you can easily cover the quantity of resveratrol applied in the most recent Spanish study!

Resveratrol - the guardian of the heart from a scientific point of view

Antiatherosclerotic and cardioprotective activity
"Research has shown that resveratrol affects the profile of lipoproteins and triglycerides in the serum, including preventing the oxidation of the LDL cholesterol fraction and its capture by macrophages, and thus the deposition of lipids in the wall of the blood vessels, which prevents the formation of atherosclerotic plaques. It also inhibits aggregation and some stages of thrombocyte activation, preventing the formation of blood clots ... ”2
"... resveratrol widens the blood vessels and counteracts arterial hypertension." 2

Neuroprotective effect
“Epidemiological studies have suggested a link between consuming more wine and lower incidence of Alzheimer's disease. This phenomenon may be the result of numerous actions of resveratrol within the structures of the central nervous system. It has been shown to inhibit the death of neurons and the enlargement of the area of necrosis caused by hypoxia, trauma or toxic factors ... Thanks to its antioxidant capacity and "scavenging" of free radicals, resveratrol reduces the adverse effects of oxidative stress in the nervous system ... "2
"Research has also shown that a diet rich in resveratrol promotes longevity and slows down the course of neurodegenerative diseases." 2

Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect
"The activity of resveratrol in counteracting the effects of oxidative stress and reducing inflammatory responses is particularly emphasized." 3
"This suggests that resveratrol is an essential ingredient in red wine to inhibit the formation of free radicals ..." 4
"... the antioxidant activity of resveratrol contributes to the reduction of the incidence of potentially mutagenic and carcinogenic DNA oxidative modifications ..." 3

Reducing the risk of obesity
"... reduces the total mass of adipose tissue, inhibiting the differentiation of pre-adipocytes and stimulating lipolysis and inducing apoptosis of mature fat cells." 2
"... in conditions conducive to obesity, i.e. the use of a high-calorie and high-fat diet, resveratrol regulates energy balance, which may prevent diet-related diseases - obesity and related metabolic disorders." 5
