Grapes are very, very good for us

Science is now revealing what we've perceived intuitively for centuries: Grapes are very, very good for us. Research has shown that grapes of all colors—red, green and black—are a natural source of beneficial components called polyphenols, which help promote antioxidant activity and can influence cell communications that affect important biological processes.

GRAPE POLYPHENOLS AND HEALTH

Simply put, grape polyphenols appear to protect the health and function of our cells.  That sounds pretty basic–which it is–but how these influential compounds accomplish the job is both complex and fascinating. What’s exciting for us is that research indicates that grape polyphenols contribute to a healthy heart and may also play a role in promoting healthy aging and other aspects of health. Today, research is ongoing to uncover even more links between grapes and heart, eye, brain and joint health, and much more.
