[Note: Resveratrol is a naturally-occurring compound found most abundantly in the skin of red grapes, berries, red wine, peanuts, and the root of a flowering plant used in traditional Chinese medicine - Polygonum cuspidatum.]

Atherosclerosis, a progressive disease characterized by the accumulation of lipids and fibrous elements in the arteries, is a most important contributor to cardiovascular diseases. Resveratrol is a naturally occurring phytopolyphenol compound, and shows the ability to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

In this review, beneficial effects of resveratrol on the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis - including:

• Regulation of vasodilator and vasoconstrictor production [blood pressure],

• Inhibition of oxidative stress/reactive oxygen species generation,

• Anti-inflammation,

• Inhibition of modification of low-density lipoproteins ["bad" cholesterol],

• Anti-platelet aggregation [anti-clotting],

• And its abilities to impede progression and modulate complications of atherosclerosis - are discussed.
