Grapes contain flavonoids that are very powerful antioxidants, which can reduce the damage caused by free radicals and slacken aging. Grapes are a remarkably healthy food, whether one eats green, red, or purple versions of this popular fruit. The health benefits of grapes are present in both fresh grapes and grape juice, and for those who have been using claims about the benefits of drinking wine as an excuse to up wine intake, several studies have suggested that grape juice confers the same benefits that wine does. Whether in the form of fruit or juice, grapes can be an excellent addition to the diet, although they should not be regarded as a cure-all superfood.
Grapes are rich sources of vitamins A, C, B6 and folate in addition to essential minerals like potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and selenium.
