Abstract: Both epidemiological and experimental studies indicate that mild‐to‐moderate alcohol consumption is associated with a reduced incidence of mortality and morbidity from coronary heart disease. The consumption of wine, particularly red wine, imparts a greater benefit in the prevention of coronary heart disease than the consumption of other alcoholic beverages. The cardioprotective effects of red wine have been attributed to several polyphenolic antioxidants including resveratrol and… Expand

TLDR
The cardiovascular protection afforded by low to moderate consumption of ethanol and the role of ethanol-induced preconditioning are discussed and clinical applications and possibilities raised by these new findings are focused on. Expand
Ethanol, wine, and experimental cardioprotection in ischemia/reperfusion: role of the prooxidant/antioxidant balance.
TLDR
Experimental evidence suggests that ethanol and/or nonethanolic components of wine might exert preconditioning effects in animal models of myocardial ischemia/reperfusion, and such an observation, if confirmed in human subjects, might open new perspectives in the prevention and treatment of ischemic coronary heart disease.

Antioxidant Effects and Drug Interactions of Resveratrol Present in Wine
Abstract Resveratrol is a phytoalexin found in grapes. Epidemiological and experimental studies suggest that the consumption of wine, particularly red wine, reduces the incidence and morbidity fromExpand
Intake of fermented beverages protect against acute myocardial injury: target organ cardiac effects and vasculoprotective effects
TLDR
Overall cardiac performance was improved in beer-fed animals regardless of the dose or alcohol content, and beer intake reduces oxidative stress and apoptosis, activates RISK components and favors reparative fibrosis improving global cardiac performance. Expand
The Sirtuin System: The Holy Grail of Resveratrol?
TLDR
It is resolved that while early data on Resveratrol are promising, the anti-oxidative and ultimately, anti-atherosclerotic potential depends on further clarification of the intricate and complex relationship between Resver atrol and the Sirtruin system. Expand
Beneficial effects of low doses of red wine consumption on perturbed shear stress-induced atherogenesis
TLDR
Administration of low doses of red wine can attenuate the proatherogenic effects induced by perturbed shear stress in vitro and in vivo, which may have implications for the prevention of atherosclerotic lesion progression and its clinical manifestations. Expand
The red wine hypothesis: from concepts to protective signalling molecules.
TLDR
Evidence for and against the 'red wine hypothesis', whereby red wine is more likely to confer cardiovascular benefits than white wine are reviewed, and Mechanistic feasibility strengthens the case for prospective therapeutic trials of alcohol vs. red wine vs. resveratrol. Expand
Resveratrol and anti-atherogenic effects
TLDR
Resveratrol is believed to decrease circulating low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, reduce cardiovascular disease risk; it reduces lipid peroxidation, platelet aggregation and oxidative stress. Expand
Resveratrol in cardiovascular health and disease
TLDR
The successful application of resveratrol in therapy is based upon its hormetic action similar to any toxin: exerting beneficial effects at lower doses and cytotoxic effects at higher doses. Expand
Alcohol and cardiovascular disease: possible protection via effects on aortic stiffness.
TLDR
Beneficial effects of regular alcohol drinking on insulin sensitivity and the risk of diabetes have also been reported in some population studies, although obesity is a strong confounder, and the effects on glucose tolerance could not be confirmed in a randomized controlled trial involving a reduction of alcohol consumption in regular drinkers.

Beyond alcohol: beverage consumption and cardiovascular mortality.
TLDR
Evidence from studies of mixed populations as well as of single-sex populations have demonstrated that this relationship is independent of sex or age, and resveratrol, a tri-hydroxy stilbene present in the skins of specific grape cultivars, is a constituent of certain red wines which may play a crucial role in modulating lipoprotein metabolism, eicosanoid synthesis, oxidation and coagulation. Expand
The red wine antioxidant resveratrol protects isolated rat hearts from ischemia reperfusion injury.
TLDR
The results of this study demonstrate that resveratrol possesses cardioprotective effects which may be attributed to its peroxyl radical scavenging activity and suggest a probable mechanism involved in the protective ability of RVT. Expand
Cardioprotective effects of grape seed proanthocyanidin against ischemic reperfusion injury.
TLDR
The results of this study demonstrated that proanthocyanidin-fed animals were resistant to myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury as evidenced by improved recovery of post-ischemic contractile functions. Expand
Myocardial protection with red wine extract.
TLDR
The results of this study demonstrated that both red wine extract and RVT were equally cardioprotective, as evidenced by their abilities to improve postischemic ventricular functions including developed pressure and aortic flow. Expand
Grape seed proanthocyanidins improved cardiac recovery during reperfusion after ischemia in isolated rat hearts.
TLDR
Grape seed proanthocyanidins have cardioprotective effects against reperfusion-induced injury via their ability to reduce or remove, directly or indirectly, free radicals in myocardium that is reperfused after ischemia. Expand
Alcohol and coronary heart disease: the evidence for a protective effect.
TLDR
No alternative explanation for the protective effect has surfaced after two decades of investigation of the alcohol-CHD relationship, yet, the penalties of heavy alcohol consumption are too large to ignore. Expand

Grape seed proanthocyanidin reduces cardiomyocyte apoptosis by inhibiting ischemia/reperfusion-induced activation of JNK-1 and C-JUN.
TLDR
GSPE functioned as an in vivo antioxidant, and its cardioprotective properties may be at least partially attributed to its ability to block antideath signal through the inhibition of proapoptotic transcription factor and gene, JNK-1 and c-Jun. Expand
Wine, alcohol, platelets, and the French paradox for coronary heart disease
TLDR
Data from Caerphilly, Wales, show that platelet aggregation, which is related to CHD, is inhibited significantly by alcohol at levels of intake associated with reduced risk of CHD. Expand
Consumption of red wine with meals reduces the susceptibility of human plasma and low-density lipoprotein to lipid peroxidation.
TLDR
The antioxidant effect of dietary red wine on plasma lipid peroxidation was not secondary to changes in the plasma vitamin E or beta-carotene content but could be related to the elevation of polyphenol concentration in plasma and LDL. Expand
