Highlights: Seedless red grapes are great as a single snack or as an addition to salads. Known as a classic gift for hospital patients with good reason, they are good source of fibre and hydration, with skins in particular containing hundreds of beneficial phytonutrients which act as antioxidants, protecting the body against degenerative disease.
Some of the better know antioxidants in grapeswould be:
- resveratrol, a stilbene phytoestrogen beneficial to human health, which acts as an antioxidant with anti-carcinogenic and anti-tumour effects;
- carotenoids betacarotene, lutein and zeaxanthin which protect the body against free radicals reducing cell damage and degenerative disease;
- myricetin which is beneficial in particular to the cardiovascular system (anti-platelet aggregation & antihypertensive action);
- quercetin which also protects against heart disease and cancer and helps stabilise histamine release reducing allergic reactions.
Grapes are also a good source of potassium which plays a role in balancing the fluids in the body, helping to bring down high blood pressure and the risk of heart disease and stroke.
