Scientists from Spain have reported that they have identified how grape juice polyphenols help reduce bad cholesterol levels, science that could extend understanding of a product that is enjoying increasing consumer awareness.

Wine International
"A strong body of science has reported that grape juice can reduce the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol. This has led to some products like Welch's purple grape juice in the UK, being approved by the heart health charity Heart UK to carry its logo on packaging. Yet the underlying mechanism of the active compounds in the grape juice has not been fully identified, say the Spanish scientists. The researchers, from the CSIC and the University of Alcala, performed an in vitro study of red grape polyphenols in human cells, and found that the polyphenols were disrupted by the LDL-cholesterol transport in the pathway that sees molecules absorbed by cells."
