Resveratrol and Grapes. | Biotivia Longevity | Scoop.it

The identification of bioactive resveratrol dimers and their analogues from wine grapes is of great importance.

Biotivia Longevity's insight:

Three compounds are tentatively as new compounds based on the fragmentation behaviours of HPLC/(+)ESI-MSn. The relative abundance of two key product ions are utilised for the key structure identification of a resveratrol dimer. Based on their HPLC/DAD-UV spectra, two compounds were tentatively identified as cis and trans-configuration, respectively.

Antioxidant effects of resveratrol and other stilbene derivatives on oxidative stress and NO bioavailability: Potential benefits to cardiovascular diseases
Biotivia Longevity's insight:

Oxidative stress plays an important part in the appearance and development of cardiovascular diseases. In this context, overproduction of reactive oxygen species leads to deregulation of metabolic pathways, such as cell proliferation or inflammation, which interferes with the homeostasis of vascular endothelium. Oxidative stress can decrease the bioavailability of nitric oxide (NO) in vessels. This decrease is highly associated with endothelial dysfunction.

Red Wine and Resveratrol may protect against age-related cognitive decline? Click to learn more.

Red Wine and Resveratrol may protect against age-related cognitive decline? Click to learn more. | Biotivia Longevity | Scoop.it

Cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disorders are serious consequences of aging. Vascular aging is characterized by arterial stiffness, endothelial dysfunction, low-grade inflammation, apoptosis, and downregulation of endothelial progenitor cells.

Biotivia Longevity's insight:

Several experimental and clinical studies suggest that red wine (RW) and resveratrol (RS) may protect against age-related cognitive decline. RS can protect the brain against the toxic action of β-amyloid (Aβ) by inducing a conformational change in its molecule. In addition, the Predimed study, which showed the protective effects of a Mediterranean diet on clinical events in high-risk patients, offered indirect support for the beneficial effects of RW. This strong evidence notwithstanding, formal recommendation for the medical prescription of RW or RS will be dependent on a well-designed clinical trial.

Greater anti-obesity effects of ε-viniferin than t-resveratrol is revealed.

Biotivia Longevity's insight:

Red wines are thought to be one of the major dietary sources of trans-resveratrol. The beneficial effects of t-resveratrol against metabolic disorders have been well characterized, however, red wines also contain various resveratrol derivatives whose health benefits have not been completely elucidated. In this report, we investigated ε-viniferin, a resveratrol dimer, which is present at comparable concentrations to t-resveratrol in red wines, and has higher anti-adipogenesis activity in 3T3-L1 cells. In addition, ε-viniferin was more effective than t-resveratrol in its anti-obesity and anti-inflammatory effects in high-fat diet fed mice. These results suggested ε-viniferin may be one of the active ingredients against metabolic disorders in red wines, in addition to t-resveratrol.
