Can Drinking Red Wine Counteract the Short-Term Effects of Cigarette Smoking?

Can Drinking Red Wine Counteract the Short-Term Effects of Cigarette Smoking?


A new study shows that a glass of red wine before smoking can counteract inflammation and blood cell damage

This sounds too good to be true.

Attention social smokers: Do you want to indulge in an occasional stress cigarette, or light up at a party? If so, drinking a glass or two of red wine before you smoke could help counteract some of the negative effects of the nicotine and tar.

This may sound too good to be true, but according to a new report published in the American Journal of Medicine, drinking red wine immediately before smoking can counteract some of the cigarette's short-term negative effects on our blood vessels, reducing inflammation and slowing down cellular aging. The wine stimulates the production of nitric oxide and other so-called relaxation factors in the bloodstream, perhaps due to its phenol content, and slows the reduction of telomeres, which function as "protective caps" on our chromosomes.

Don’t think this means that you can start chain-smoking if you drink enough wine. The participants in the study were 20 young non-smokers or social smokers who did not have a nicotine habit.

Lead investigator Viktoria Schwarz, MD, of the University of Saarland in Homburg, Germany, was quick to stress, however, that "sparse data exist on the short term potential vasoprotective effects of red wine in smoking-healthy individuals. The aim of our study was to investigate the acute vascular effects of red wine consumption prior to 'occasional lifestyle smoking' in healthy individuals. We found evidence that pre-consumption of red wine prevented most of the vascular injury caused by smoking."


Red wine before smoking can offset damage to blood vessels

Drinking red wine is widely regarded as protective against cardiovascular disease.

New York: A glass or two of red wine before lighting up a cigarette can counteract some of the short-term negative effects of smoking on blood vessels, a study says.

"The aim of our study was to investigate the acute vascular effects of red wine consumption prior to 'occasional lifestyle smoking' in healthy individuals," explained lead investigator Viktoria Schwarz from University of Saarland, Homburg.

"We found evidence that preconsumption of red wine prevented most of the vascular injury caused by smoking," Schwarz noted.

Drinking red wine is widely regarded as protective against cardiovascular disease.

Cigarette smoke causes acute endothelial damage, vascular and systemic inflammation, and cellular aging.

Red wine stimulates the formation of endothelium-dependent relaxation factors such as nitric oxide, which improve endothelial function in coronary arteries possibly because of the high phenol concentration in red wine.

The study, published in the The American Journal of Medicine, examined the effects of smoking on various biochemical processes in the blood and vessels of 20 healthy non-smokers who volunteered to smoke three cigarettes.

Half of the participants drank red wine one hour before smoking, in an amount calculated to result in 0.75 per cent blood alcohol content.

Blood and urine were collected before and after drinking and smoking and continued until 18 hours after smoking.

Smoking is known to cause microparticles to be released into the bloodstream. These particles come from endothelial cells, platelets, and monocytes and indicate that cells in the blood vessels are being damaged.

Researchers found that in participants who consumed red wine before smoking, these cellular changes did not occur.

Since the study was limited to young, healthy nonsmokers, it is not clear whether these findings apply to the elderly, the ill, or chronic smokers, the study said.
