These polyphenols selected for their antioxidant properties are extracted from a red wine collected in the South of France (Languedoc-Roussillon).
Obtained by extraction from real wine, PROVINOLS™ has the particularity to have the same polyphenols profile as the red wine it is extracted from. It contains 70% polyphenols.
It was developed to provide the benefits of the “French Paradox” through nutritional products and without alcohol consumption.
The French Paradox
The French Paradox is the expression used to describe the relative lower incidence of cardiovascular diseases in France, compared to other industrialized countries despite similar risk factors (a relatively high saturated fat intake). This lower incidence is and generally attributed to red wine consumption.
Indeed several epidemiological studies have suggested that a moderate red wine consumption (2 to 3 glasses per day) might help support cardiovascular health. Further research has concluded that this beneficial effect of red wine may be partly explained by the presence of polyphenols.
Benefits and recommended intake
For more than 30 years, hundreds of studies have been carried out on red wine polyphenols and demonstrated their wide range of properties: antioxidant and radical scavenging activities, effects on LDL-cholesterol oxidation, platelet aggregation, vasorelaxation, proliferation of smooth muscle cells and arterial hypertension. All of these properties could explain how red wine polyphenols play the beneficial role on cardiovascular health suggested by epidemiological studies.
Several of these properties were demonstrated on PROVINOLS™ through in vitro and in vivo studies. Contact us for more information on:
