We report the development of a chemical modification method of general applicability to polyphenols, which increases solubility to influence absorption. Glucosyl groups were added to the resveratrol kernel via a succinate linker, yielding 3,4',5-tri-(alpha-D-glucose-3-O-succinyl) resveratrol. The construct was only slowly hydrolyzed in acid and at pH 6.8, but it was destroyed by blood esterases in less than 1h. In rats its administration resulted in a blood concentration versus time curve shifted to longer times in comparison to resveratrol, a useful modulation of pharmacokinetics. The area-under-curve parameter and the metabolite mix were similar to those of resveratrol. The method may be advantageously employed to solubilize other polyphenols and to make them more palatable.

Abstract

We report the development of a chemical modification method of general applicability to polyphenols, which increases solubility to influence absorption. Glucosyl groups were added to the resveratrol kernel via a succinate linker, yielding 3,4',5-tri-(alpha-D-glucose-3-O-succinyl) resveratrol. The construct was only slowly hydrolyzed in acid and at pH 6.8, but it was destroyed by blood esterases in less than 1h. In rats its administration resulted in a blood concentration versus time curve shifted to longer times in comparison to resveratrol, a useful modulation of pharmacokinetics. The area-under-curve parameter and the metabolite mix were similar to those of resveratrol. The method may be advantageously employed to solubilize other polyphenols and to make them more palatable.
