Packed With Nutrients

Grapes contain many important vitamins and minerals, including more than one-quarter of the RDIs for vitamins C and K. 

High Antioxidant Contents That Can Prevent Chronic Diseases

Grapes are high in antioxidants, beneficial plant compounds that may protect against chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease. The highest concentration of antioxidants is found in the skin and seeds. Red grapes contain higher numbers of antioxidants due to the anthocyanins that give them their color. 

Benefit Eye Health

Grapes contain several compounds, such as resveratrol, lutein and zeaxanthin, that may protect against common eye diseases, including age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma.

Help Lower Blood Pressure

One cup (151 grams) of grapes contains 288 mg of potassium, which is 6% of the RDI (1). This mineral is necessary for maintaining healthy blood pressure levels.

Help Reduce Cholesterol

Compounds found in grapes may help protect against high cholesterol levels by decreasing cholesterol absorption.

May Prevent Chronic Diseases by Decreasing Inflammation

Chronic inflammation plays a key role in the development of chronic diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and autoimmune diseases, etc. Grapes contain compounds that may have anti-inflammatory effects, which may protect against certain heart and bowel diseases.

May Protect Against Certain Bacteria, Viruses and Yeast Infections

Grapes are a good source of vitamin C, which is well known for its beneficial impact on your immune system. Further, grape skin extract has been shown to protect against the flu virus in test-tube studies.

May Improve Memory, Attention and Mood

Grapes contain compounds that may improve memory, attention and mood and may protect against Alzheimer’s disease, though more human-based research is needed to confirm some of these benefits.
