Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, great attention has been paid to polyphenols due to their positive effects on health. One of the most widely-studied phenolic compounds is resveratrol. This molecule, which is naturally present in some foods, shows beneficial effects on various physiological and biochemical processes, thus representing a potential tool for the prevention or the treatment of diseases highly prevalent in our society. Several of these beneficial effects have been observed in human beings, but others only in pre-clinical studies so far, and therefore, it is mandatory to continue with the scientific research in this field. Indeed, new knowledge concerning these issues could enable the development of novel functional foods or nutraceuticals, incorporating resveratrol, suitable for preventing or treating diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, dislipemia, insulin resistance and diabetes, liver diseases, etc.

It is our great pleasure to invite researchers to provide manuscripts either describing original research or providing and up-to-date review of the scientific literature for a Special Issue of Nutrients on "Benefits of Resveratrol Supplementation”. Manuscripts can present recent advances on the knowledge on resveratrol effects on health, including mechanisms of action, dose-response patterns, how to improve bioavailability, combinatorial strategies, population group targets, health claims and with other bioactive molecules.

The comprehensive studies done on resveratrol (RES) support that this polyphenol has multiple bioactivities and is widely accepted for dietary supplementation. Furthermore, regular exercise is known to have benefits on health and is considered as a form of preventive medicine. Although the vast majority of prior studies emphasize the efficacy of aerobic exercise in promoting physiological adaptions, other types of exercise, such as resistance exercise and high-intensity interval training (HIIT), may achieve similar or different physiological outcomes. Few studies have looked into the effectiveness of a combinational, synergistic approach to exercise using a weight-loading ladder climbing animal platform. In this study, ICR mice were allocated randomly to the RES and training groups using a two-way ANOVA (RES × Training) design. Exercise capacities, including grip strength, aerobic performance, and anaerobic performance, were assessed and the physiological adaptions were evaluated using fatigue-associated indexes that were implemented immediately after the exercise intervention. In addition, glycogen levels, muscular characteristics, and safety issues, including body composition, histopathology, and biochemistry, were further elucidated. Synergistic effects were observed on grip strength, anaerobic capacities, and exercise lactate, with significant interaction effects. Moreover, the training or RES may have contributed significantly to elevating aerobic capacity, tissue glycogen, and muscle hypertrophy. Toxic and other deleterious effects were also considered to evaluate the safety of the intervention. Resistance exercise in combination with resveratrol supplementation may be applied in the general population to achieve better physiological benefits, promote overall health, and promote participation in regular physical activities.

Resistance to cisplatin (CDDP) is a major cause of cancer treatment failure, including human breast cancer. The tumor suppressor protein p53 is a key factor in the induction of cell cycle arrest, DNA repair, and apoptosis in response to cellular stimuli. This protein is phosphorylated in serine 15 and serine 20 during DNA damage repair or in serine 46 to induce apoptosis. Resveratrol (Resv) is a natural compound representing a promising chemosensitizer for cancer treatment that has been shown to sensitize tumor cells through upregulation and phosphorylation of p53 and inhibition of RAD51. We developed a CDDP-resistant MCF-7 cell line variant (MCF-7R) to investigate the effect of Resv in vitro in combination with CDDP over the role of p53 in overcoming CDDP resistance in MCF-7R cells. We have shown that Resv induces sensitivity to CDDP in MCF-7 and MCF-7R cells and that the downregulation of p53 protein expression and inhibition of p53 protein activity enhances resistance to CDDP in both cell lines. On the other hand, we found that Resv induces serine 20 (S20) phosphorylation in chemoresistant cells to activate p53 target genes such as PUMA and BAX, restoring apoptosis. It also changed the ratio between BCL-2 and BAX, where BCL-2 protein expression was decreased and at the same time BAX protein was increased. Interestingly, Resv attenuates CDDP-induced p53 phosphorylation in serine 15 (S15) and serine 46 (S46) probably through dephosphorylation and deactivation of ATM. It also activates different kinases, such as CK1, CHK2, and AMPK to induce phosphorylation of p53 in S20, suggesting a novel mechanism of p53 activation and chemosensitization to CDDP. Full article

Sirtuin-1 (Sirt-1) and an endogenous secretory receptor for an advanced glycation end product (esRAGE) are associated with vascular protection. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of resveratrol (RSV) and caloric restriction (CR) on gene expression of Sirt-1 and esRAGE on serum levels of Sirt1 and esRAGE in healthy and slightly overweight subjects. The study included 48 healthy subjects randomized to 30 days of RSV (500 mg/day) or CR (1000 cal/day). Waist circumference (p = 0.011), TC (p = 0.007), HDL (p = 0.031), non-HDL (p = 0.025), ApoA1 (p = 0.011), and ApoB (p = 0.037) decreased in the CR group. However, TC (p = 0.030), non-HDL (p = 0.010), ApoB (p = 0.034), and HOMA-IR (p = 0.038) increased in the RSV group. RSV and CR increased serum levels of Sirt-1, respectively, from 1.06 ± 0.71 ng/mL to 5.75 ± 2.98 ng/mL (p < 0.0001) and from 1.65 ± 1.81 ng/mL to 5.80 ± 2.23 ng/mL (p < 0.0001). esRAGE serum levels were similar in RSV (p = NS) and CR (p = NS) groups. Significant positive correlation was observed between gene expression changes of Sirt-1 and esRAGE in RSV (r = 0.86; p < 0.0001) and in CR (r = 0.71; p < 0.0001) groups, but not for the changes in serum concentrations. CR promoted increases in the gene expression of esRAGE (post/pre). Future long-term studies are needed to evaluate the impact of these outcomes on vascular health. Full article
