Bioavailability of Red Wine Anthocyanins

2016-11-30 15:45:44 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The main aim of this study is to evaluate the bioavailability of table red wine and young Port red wine anthocyanins in healthy men.

Description

Anthocyanins (ANT) are water soluble pigments found in plants, flowers and fruits that are consumed as part of the human diet, many times in higher amounts than other flavonoid classes. Red wine is also an important source of anthocyanins, especially Mv3glc.

Several epidemiological studies have suggested that the consumption of anthocyanin-rich foods, including the moderate consumption of red wine, is positively associated with the prevention of cardiovascular heart disease.

It has become clear that the flavonoid bioactive forms in vivo are not necessarily those which occur in nature, but metabolites arising after absorption takes place.Therefore, studying the bioavailability of red wine ANT is very important to identify which metabolites (originated in vivo) can actually reach the target organs (and in which concentrations) and may be responsible for the postulated health benefits of red wine.

Intervention protocol:

Urine samples and peripheral venous blood (10 ml) will be collected from 10 h-fasting subjects. Afterwards, each volunteer will consume 250 ml of table red wine or 150 ml of young Port red wine and blood samples will be collected 15, 30, 60 and 120 min after wines ingestion. Another urine sample will be collected at 120 min.

Table red wine 12 % (250 ml) and young Port red wine 20 % (150 ml), two different food matrices rich in ANT, provided the same amount of ethanol (24 g of ethanol).

A thorough screening analysis for ANT will be performed in plasma and urine samples collected from the volunteers at different time points.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A vascular malformation of developmental origin characterized pathologically by ectasia of superficial dermal capillaries, and clinically by persistent macular erythema. In the past, port wine stains have frequently been termed capillary hemangiomas, which they are not; unfortunately this confusing practice persists: HEMANGIOMA, CAPILLARY is neoplastic, a port-wine stain is non-neoplastic. Port-wine stains vary in color from fairly pale pink to deep red or purple and in size from a few millimeters to many centimeters in diameter. The face is the most frequently affected site and they are most often unilateral. (From Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 5th ed, p483)

A non-inherited congenital condition with vascular and neurological abnormalities. It is characterized by facial vascular nevi (PORT-WINE STAIN), and capillary angiomatosis of intracranial membranes (MENINGES; CHOROID). Neurological features include EPILEPSY; cognitive deficits; GLAUCOMA; and visual defects.

Fermented juice of fresh grapes or of other fruit or plant products used as a beverage.

A plant genus in the family VITACEAE, order Rhamnales, subclass Rosidae. It is a woody vine cultivated worldwide. It is best known for grapes, the edible fruit and used to make WINE and raisins.
