Grapes certainly make a great snack, but did you know that they may promote heart health, normal inflammatory response, vitality and healthy skin? It’s no grapevine gossip–grape skin and the seeds in particular are full of vitamins, antioxidants and other nutrients that may help support overall health.
In grape skin and seeds, you’ll find a bundle of vital nutrients, including vitamin E, manganese, linoleic acid, flavonoid compounds, oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (better known as OPCs) and resveratrol, most of which are powerful antioxidants. These compounds may help protect healthy cells from free radical attack, as well as support skin, heart health and vitality.
You can find these beneficial compounds in red grapes, red wine or grape juice, but it’s been said that these forms may not provide the same antioxidant potency as grape seed extract. Grab a grape today!
