grapes

I have been eating grapes like crazy lately! They are so crisp and yummy right now. The red ones are my favourite. Grapes have a high concentration of a compound called resveratrol, this compound has anti-aging, anti-cancer, anti-inflammation and anti-viral properties. Grape seeds contain rich flavonoids that are powerful in fighting and protecting against many diseases. When juicing grapes, juice the seeds and all. Grapes contain large amounts of tartaric and malic acids. Also present in grapes are other acids like succinic, fumaric, glyceric, p-coumaric and caffeic, each functioning quietly with its own wonderful healing properties. Grape skins are loaded with beta-carotene and lycopene, and other phytonutrients like ellagic acid, resveratrol and sulfur compounds. EAT some!!
