The term FRENCH PARADOX was coined in 1992 to describe the relatively low incidence of cardiovascular disease in the French population, despite a relatively high dietary intake of saturated fats, and potentially attributable to the consumption of red wine. After nearly 20 years, several studies have investigated the fascinating, overwhelmingly positive biological and clinical associations of red wine consumption with cardiovascular disease and mortality. Light to moderate intake of red wine… Expand

Wine Polyphenols in the Management of Cardiovascular Risk Factors
TLDR
Moderate consumption of wine, a polyphenol-rich beverage, exerts a protective effect on biomarkers related to the progression and development of cardiovascular disease, and caution should be taken when giving advice related to wine consumption because of its alcoholic content. Expand
Red Wine Consumption and Cardiovascular Health
TLDR
The aim of this review is to summarize the accumulated evidence correlating moderate red wine consumption with prevention of CHD by focusing on the different mechanisms underlying this relationship. Expand
Wine: An Aspiring Agent in Promoting Longevity and Preventing Chronic Diseases
TLDR
Moderate wine intake, at 1–2 glasses per day as part of the Mediterranean diet, has been positively associated with human health promotion, disease prevention, and disease prognosis. Expand
Red Dry Wine Modulates Plasma Cholesterol Levels and Cardiac Enzymes in Humans
Several studies has pointed that red wine diet, rich in polyphenols, has several effects like vasodilation, possible antioxidant effect, decrease of cellular events of atherosclerosis, decrease ofExpand
Could cheese be the missing piece in the French paradox puzzle?
TLDR
It is hypothesized that cheese consumption, especially of molded varieties, may contribute to the occurrence of the "French paradox", and this assumption is well supported by newly discovered facts revealing the positive effect of cheese ingestion on lipoprotein turnover and plasma lipid profile, haemorheological parameters and inflammatory status. Expand
Red Wine, Resveratrol and Atrial Fibrillation
TLDR
Red wine and resveratrol have been linked to antiarrhythmic properties and may act as an inhibitor of both intracellular calcium release and pathological signaling cascades in AF, eliminating calcium overload and preserving the cardiomyocyte contractile function. Expand
The relation of saturated fatty acids with low-grade inflammation and cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Research regarding this heterogenic group of fatty acids and the mechanisms relating them to (chronic) systemic low-grade inflammation, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and notably CVD are summarized. Expand
Fibrinogen Increases Resveratrol Solubility and Prevents it from Oxidation
TLDR
Spectrofluorimetry demonstrated that resveratrol is capable of binding to fibrinogen, the main protein in the coagulation process, which is also important as a food additive, and may serve as an antioxidant at the site of injury. Expand
Effects of resveratrol and other wine polyphenols on vascular function: an update.
TLDR
In this overview, the in vitro and in vivo evidence on the activity of resveratrol on vascular function and circulating blood cells, with a special emphasis on blood platelets, is thoroughly presented. Expand
Nonalcoholic Components of Wine and Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
ASCVD drives the majority of CVD including angina (chronic chest pain), arrhythmias, as well as heart attacks and strokes. 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
Effect of red wine consumption on lipoprotein (a) and other risk factors for atherosclerosis.
TLDR
No effect with either treatment was detected on total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL or measures of antioxidant status, including the susceptibility of LDL to oxidation, and potential anti-atherogenic changes specific to red wine were reduction in lipoprotein and increased membrane fluidity. Expand
Effects of red wine on endothelial function: postprandial studies vs clinical trials.
TLDR
Analysis of all data about the acute effects of red wine constituents on endothelial function, is inconclusive and it is obvious that new studies are necessary in order to elucidate this matter. Expand

TLDR
Moderate red wine drinking, in the absence of contraindications, may be beneficial to patients who are at risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular events and a diet based on fruits and vegetables containing flavonoids may be even more beneficial. Expand
Constituents of red wine other than alcohol improve endothelial function in patients with coronary artery disease
TLDR
Acute ingestion of red wine without alcohol led to higher FMD than ingestion of regular red wine in CAD patients, suggesting that the acute effect of redwine on endothelial function may be different than its long-term effect and it could be attributed to its constituents other than alcohol. 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
Grapes and cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
The available data strongly support the recommendation that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, including grapes, can decrease the risk for cardiovascular disease. Expand
Experimental evidence for the cardioprotective effects of red wine.
TLDR
Mild-to-moderate red wine consumption improves cardiac function in the ischemic myocardium through the protection of endothelial function, the expression of several cardioprotective oxidative stress-inducible proteins, as well as the activation of adenosine receptors and nitrous oxide synthase mechanisms. Expand
Red Wine and Your Heart
TLDR
The main health benefit of moderate alcohol use appears to be related to its effect on the development of atherosclerosis or the accumulation of fatty plaques in the blood vessels, particularly the coronary arteries that supply the heart. 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
