Red Wine and its Cardiovascular Effects

Red Wine and its Cardiovascular Effects

Red Wine and its Cardiovascular Effects By: Mary C. Lawrence Why the interest in red wine? French Paradox Lowest rate of cardiac disease mortality Fairly high intake of saturated fatty acids Loaded with natural health aids Cholesterol Detoxifier Anticoagulant Artery Relaxant How Antioxidants Work Saturated fats and oils contain many double bonds or 3 0

hydrogen which are easily targeted for auto-oxidation Auto-oxidation R3CH + O-O R3CO-OH R3COOH R3CO + OH Auto-oxidation leads to hydroperoxides which can dissociate rapidly because the RO-OR bond dissociation energy is ~35 kcal/mol which is lower than most bonds How Antioxidants Work cont. Antioxidants inhibit auto-oxidation of the free radical groups

Antioxidants are usually phenol compounds (aromatic ring with -OH group attached) Phenols make good radical scavengers because the radical products are resonance-stabilized so they are then non-reactive compare to other radicals O O O O O Wine Antioxidants COOH

O H OH OH Both have been shown to relax smooth muscle surrounding rat aortic rings Both believe to involve the NO-cGMP pathway NO-cGMP Pathway Known that the intracellular messenger for NO is guanylate cyclase-which catalyzes cGMP

cGMP then leads to an increase in protein kinase G phosphorylation and smooth muscle relaxation Taken from www.kumc.edu Differences in wine Red versus white wine Red wine fermented with grape stems and skins White wines show lesser vascular relaxation effects Thick versus thin skinned grapes Flavonol content higher in thick skin -quercetin glycosides accumulate in skins

Grapes left on vine longer have higher flavonol levels--skins usually thicker The Future? ActiVin--nutritional ingredient manufactured by Inter Health Natural extract of red grape seeds, contains high amounts of flavonoids Powerful inhibitor of free radical induced lipid peroxidation References Andriambeloson, Emile, Celine Magnier, Gisele Haan-Archipoff, Annelise Lobstein, Robert Anton Alain Beretz, Jean Claude Stoclet, and Ramaroson Andriantsitohaina.
