Health Benefits of Grapes

Antioxidants

Grapes are a treasure trove of antioxidants. As a group, grape varieties are known to contain phytonutrients such as flavanols (catechins, quercetin, etc.), phenolic acids, carotenoids (beta-carotene, lutein, etc.) and stilbenes (such as resveratrol). Most of the antioxidants in grapes are concentrated in the fruits’ skin and seeds; by comparison, the pulp or flesh contains just one-twentieth to one-one hundredth the level of antioxidants.

Anti-Inflammatory



Reserveratrol, an antioxidant found in grapes and grape products such as wine, provides anti-inflammatory benefits. Grapes combination of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties lend it a bevy of other health benefits.
