Moderate intake of red wine can provide cardiovascular protection

Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are bone-marrow derived cells that are mobilized into the peripheral circulation when vascular repair is required.In this study, the underlying molecular mechanism of EPC migration was investigated in young healthy volunteers who drank 250 ml of red wine daily for 21 days.

Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are bone-marrow derived cells that are mobilized into the peripheral circulation when vascular repair is required. The clinical manifestations of cardiovascular disease in older individuals are associated with a decreased ability of the endothelium to regenerate and maintain its integrity. A low level of EPCs is one of several mechanisms for vascular disease. An increased number of EPCs is associated with a lower risk from cardiovascular causes. In this study, the underlying molecular mechanism of EPC migration was investigated in young healthy volunteers who drank 250 ml of red wine daily for 21 days. The results showed that daily moderate consumption of red wine enhances EPC activities and that these effects could be linked to the mechanisms of cardiovascular protection.
