Postprandial Improvement of Endothelial Function by Red Wine and Olive Oil Antioxidants: A Synergistic Effect of Components of the Mediterranean Diet

Acute consumption of both red wine and green olive oil, rich in antioxidants, led to an improvement in the postprandial endothelial function in healthy subjects, providing an additional favorable effect of components of the Mediterranean diet and of their antioxidant substances on endothelium function, at the postPRandial state.

Postprandial Endothelial Function: The Effect of Various Types of Fat and of Red Wine Intake on Flow- Mediated Dilation in Healthy Volunteers

Saturated fat acutely decreases FMD while mono-unsaturated and poly-uns saturated fat do not have any harmful effect on endothelium, and the concomitant intake of red wine with saturated fat is associated with a delayed counteracting effect on lipid-induced postprandial endothelial dysfunction.

Fish oil fatty acids improve postprandial vascular reactivity in healthy men.

Meal fatty acids appear to be an important determinant of vascular reactivity, with fish oils significantly improving postprandial endothelium-independent vasodilation.

Chronic effects of a high-fat diet enriched with virgin olive oil and a low-fat diet enriched with α-linolenic acid on postprandial endothelial function in healthy men

Chronic ingestion of a Mediterranean diet avoids the postprandial deterioration of endothelial function associated with Westernised diets in healthy individuals.

Acute combined effects of olive oil and wine on pressure wave reflections: another beneficial influence of the Mediterranean diet antioxidants?

Findings reveal an additional favourable effect of components of the Mediterranean diet on haemodynamics in the postprandial state as well as a more prolonged decreasing effect after RG and RO consumption compared to WO and WG.

Sesame oil consumption exerts a beneficial effect on endothelial function in hypertensive men

This is the first study to show that sesame oil consumption exerts a beneficial effect on endothelial function and this effect is sustained with long-term daily use.

Olive oil consumption and its repercussions on lipid metabolism.

As demonstrated by substantial evidence, extra virgin olive oil is healthful and should be preferentially used within the context of a balanced diet, but excessive consumption may lead to adverse consequences.



Impaired endothelial function following a meal rich in used cooking fat.

Acute effects of a high-fat meal with and without red wine on endothelial function in healthy subjects.

Effects of dietary fat quality and quantity on postprandial activation of blood coagulation factor VII.

Findings indicate that high-fat meals may be prothrombotic, irrespective of their fatty acid composition, and that saturated, monounsaturated, or polyunsaturated fats differed regarding postprandial activation of FVII.

Effect of a single high-fat meal on endothelial function in healthy subjects.

Effect of antioxidant vitamins on the transient impairment of endothelium-dependent brachial artery vasoactivity following a single high-fat meal.

A single high-fat meal transiently reduces endothelial function for up to 4 hours in healthy, normocholesterolemic subjects, probably through the accumulation of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins, suggesting an oxidative mechanism.

Comparison of effects of dietary saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fatty acids on plasma lipids and lipoproteins in man.

Results of this study show that oleic acid is as effective as linoleic acid in lowering LDL-C levels in normo-triglyceridemic patients, and oleoic acid seemingly reduces HDL-C Levels less frequently than does linolesic acid.

The effect of dietary omega-3 fatty acids on coronary atherosclerosis. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.

Dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids modestly mitigates the course of coronary atherosclerosis in humans.

A clinical trial of the effects of dietary patterns on blood pressure. DASH Collaborative Research Group.

A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods and with reduced saturated and total fat can substantially lower blood pressure.

Dietary supplementation with marine fish oil improves in vitro small artery endothelial function in hypercholesterolemic patients: a double-blind placebo-controlled study.

Marine fish oil significantly improved endothelial function in peripheral small arteries in hypercholesterolemia patients, which may provide a mechanism for the beneficial effects of these fatty acids in coronary heart disease.

The effect of supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids on soluble markers of endothelial function in patients with coronary heart disease.

The results indicate that n-3 FA supplementation decreases hemostatic markers of atherosclerosis, whereas markers of inflammation may be increased.
