The results emphasize possible adverse consequences of binge drinking on liver function; even in individuals with low-risk overall alcohol consumption, occasions of heavy drinking may lead to an extra burden to liver tissue and liver enzymes. They conclude that the pattern of drinking should be more systematically implicated in clinical recommendations.

Benefits of dietary polyphenols and their interaction with the microbiota

Polyphenols are found abundantly in fruits (also in grapes) and vegatables. Mounting evidence supports the cardiometabolic benefits of polyphenols and points to the intestinal microbiota as a key mediator of the health benefits of polyphenols. It seems clear now that polyphenols and resveratrol act primarily on the intestinal lumen (space within the intestine). Their health benefits possibly derive from a reshaping of the interplay between the gut/intestinal microbes and the human immune system and/or modification of the set of microbial metabolites bioavailable to the host (human).
