Abstract

Vegetables and fruits had antioxidant capacity. Fermented grapes had a higher content of anthocyanins and flavonoids, and reduced skin wrinkles. There were not more clinical studies on whether fermented grapes with fruit and vegetable extracts had anti-aging and anti-inflammatory activities. The current study used fermented grapes beverages made from fermented grapes combined with fruit and vegetable extracts to explore anti-aging and anti-inflammatory. 60 subjects were recruited and divided into a placebo and another fermented grape drinks group. The subjects drank 50 ml , 1 bottle a day for 8 week. After drinking for 8 weeks, a skin test and blood inflammatory factor analysis were performed. Compared to the placebo group, skin brightness, moisture, elasticity was significantly increased by 3.6%, 4.9%, 5.4%, respectively. Fermented grape drinks decreased skin spots, and wrinkles by 7.0%, and 19.0%, respectively. TNF-¦Á (Tumor Necrosis Factor) and IL-6 (Interleukin-6) expression were decreased, also, as a function of fermented grape drinks intakes. This study indicated that fermented grapes combined with fruit and vegetable extracts can significantly improve the brightness, moisture, elasticity, wrinkles, pores, and decrease TNF-¦Á and IL-6 expression.
