Researchers have found that antioxidants present in red wine can be used in the treatment of heart disease, according to a study conducted on February 1, 2018.

The building up of plaque within the artery walls, which leads to blockage of blood flow through tissues in the body, is the reason for heart disease. Due to this, the risk of heart attack or stroke is increased. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year 630,000 people die from heart diseases.

Cure for heart disease has not been discovered yet. However, there are many treatments which includes surgical procedures and lifestyle changes. Insertion and inflation of a small balloon inside the blocked artery is the procedure followed in coronary angioplasty. By doing this, the artery widens and blood flow to the heart continues. A small mesh tube called stent is used in this procedure to support the blood vessel.

Toxic chemotherapy agents will be released on using commercial stents and the blood vessels might narrow down again by using these. For the prevention of blood clotting and inflammation, researchers have developed a new stent, which will release red wine antioxidants. Resveratrol and quercetin are the two antioxidants present in red wine.

The research team is also developing a balloon, which has the two antioxidants present in red wine coated on it. This will help in treating peripheral artery disease. 8 to 12 million people in the U.S. are affected by this disease due to the blockage of blood flow to kidneys, the stomach, arms or legs. These drug-coated balloons can be used by interventional cardiologists for the treatment of arteries. On commercializing this method of treatment, the growth of global distilled spirits market can be increased, as elaborated in the of global distilled spirits market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
