Bioavailability of resveratrol from grape products

We also established: 

  • The capacity of resveratrol and its metabolites to bind human LDL (Anal Chem, 2005; Clin Chem, 2007) 
  • The presence of hydroxytyrosol, a phenolic compound characteristic of the olive oil in wine;
  • Endogenous hydroxytyrosol formation after wine consumption, presumably via enhancement of dopamine metabolism (EJN, 2006).
