GRAPES Will Help To Weight Loss
Grapes are one of the most cultivated fruits, mainly for the wine industry, with numerous varieties that rarely reach the local fruit store. Keep a look out for the blue, red, green and yellow grapes and take a bunch home.
The benefits from fresh grapes are for the blood system. If you need a natural blood transfusion, eat a bunch of grapes a day, for a week, or make a fresh grape juice daily and avoid all the pips. The manganese content (0.8mg) from one cup of grapes supplies 20% of the daily requirement. Imagine if you ate a bunch of grapes! Manganese is vital for red blood cell development and a good memory and is required a lot during lactation. Grapes supply tartaric acid which stimulates the intestines. Red, blue and purple grapes contain saponin; a glucose-based compound, it helps lower cholesterol by reducing oxidation and it also reduces inflammation. Plus grapes contain the antioxidant quercetin (refer to apples in section entitled as Apples).

Grapes also contain a natural antibiotic in their skin, trans-resveratrol, which fights prostate and lung cancer. It inhibits carcinogens from binding to cell receptors and it can stop the spread of cancer. In addition, it may also promote longevity and decrease the risk of heart disease. Grape skin also contains phenolic compounds; these inhibit enzymes that cause blood vessels to constrict and reduce the supply of oxygen to the heart. Grapes increase the level of nitric oxide produced by the body to protect against blood clot formation in arteries as well as increase vitamin E levels in the blood. Nitric oxide is an antioxidant with the power to reduce oxidation of blood plasma and cholesterol. Grapes are in season for a few months, so hoe into them for great blood building and protective qualities for the immune system. Make fresh grape juice regularly, and when out of season, try good quality grape juice: it provides most of the benefits and a ‘glass of red before bed’ will provide a good night’s sleep as well as the natural antibiotic qualities. Grapes are great, mate!
