Now that everybody is on the search for an ideal diet to have good looks as well as a healthy long life, it is encouraging to know that French even though having a high fat diet lived a healthier and longer span of life . There was absolutely no need for them to go for obesity treatment.
The normal diet of a French person comprises of 108 gms of fat per day from animal source when compared with an American who has a mere 72 gms, much from vegetable source. The French also had the habit of consuming a comparatively higher quantity of dairy products and pork, but lived a disease free and longer life . This nature of the French is known as the “French Paradox” and is also found in the Mediterranean basin, where it is known as the “Mediterranean Effect”.
The consumption of red wine by the French is featured to be the main issue attributed to the Paradox. The red wine contains antioxidants such as the Resveratol was considered to be the protective substance . Dr. David Sinclair the co founder of the Sirtris, with his associates have done a study on Resveratol, which they considered to be the protective biochemical of the red wine.
It was on 30th of November 2006, the major news agencies unanimously reported that it was not Resveratol but the Procyanidins present in red wine that are the cause for their proclaimed benefits.
Roger Corder, the author of “The Red Wine Diet” basically had three questions to be studied . 1. How does Red Wine reduce heart disease? 2. What is the protective component? 3. Do all red wines confer the same benefits?
The answers to these questions were compiled in the form of the book. He also pointed out some interesting features about people in different geographical locations and the nature of their health with regard to their wine consuming habits .
Procyanidin is an antioxidant which is present in all red wines but only some do have these active substance more than the rest . The Red wine produced from the Tannat grapes is characterized to contain highest concentrations of this antioxidant.
The inner side of the blood vessels gets deposited with the worn out (oxidized) fat molecules and calcium. This blocks the normal flow of blood and can cause life threatening disease like high blood pressure (hypertension) and coronary heart disease. This life threatening condition is termed as arthrosclerosis. The Procyanidin molecule gets used up by deoxidizing these fat molecules and prevents their deposition in the blood vessel , as such increases their function. In the opinion of Roger Corder this antioxidant causes profound changes in the blood vessel function. Procyanidin present in the red wine also enhances a series of cardiovascular privileges , such as dissolves blood clot, promotes healthy cholesterol metabolism and relaxes the blood vessels.
Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, and is an autonomous region of Italy. Roger Corder was surprised to find the people living in this island with high number of centenarians (people who live to hundred years of age) and attributed it to their consumption of red wine, as it is a part of the Mediterranean diets.
Alsace is the region with maximum heart diseases and minimum longevity in France is noticed to be a white wine consuming area region , is another interesting fact observed by Roger Corder.
White wine has less procyanidin in comparison with that of red wine. White wine is produced from fermenting only the fruit but in red wine the smashed seed and skin are also fermented in addition to the fruit and hence contains more of the active substance . An increase in the duration of fermentation produces higher concentration of the Procyanidins. He also suggests that people who do not consume red wine may still have the benefits of procyanidin by consuming dark chocolates and certain berries.
