Not Just Delicious: 7 Reasons Why You Should Eat Grapes

Grape, a fruit which is also used in making wine, is not only delicious but is also beneficial to one’s health.

According to Medical News Today, grapes help keep the body health in numerous ways.

“Both red and green grapes contain resveratrol, but red grapes, and specifically their skins, contain more. It is better to get the benefits of resveratrol from eating grapes rather than drinking wine. Resveratrol is available in supplement form, but the benefits of grapes include fiber and a range of minerals and vitamins. Dietary sources of nutrients are more beneficial than supplements, because they supply fiber and other nutrients,” it was noted.

Here are some benefits from eating grapes:

1. Good for blood pressure

Grapes have a high potassium content. Increasing potassium intake helps reduce the negative effects of too much sodium in the diet.

2. Eye health
Grapes contain antioxidants, lutein and zeaxanthin, which help maintain eye health. They neutralizes unstable molecules known as free radicals. In this way, they may reduce oxidative stress and damage to the retina, and help prevent cataracts and other conditions.

3. Prevents constipation

Grapes, which contain water and fiber, help people stay hydrated; keep bowel movements regular; and reduce the risk of constipation.

4. Diabetes
The American Diabetes Association encourages people to consume grapes and other fruits, as long as the carbohydrate amount is counted as part of their meal plan.

5. Treat acne 
In the journal Dermatology and Therapy, it was revealed that a study has found that resveratrol could help treat acne, especially if used with benzoyl peroxide as a topical treatment. 

6. Reduces risk of cancer 
Laboratory studies found that resveratrol may be able to slow or prevent the growth of tumors in lymph, liver, stomach, breast, and colon; as well as skin cancer and leukemia. 

7. Heart health 
Grapes contain fiber and potassium that support heart health. The American Heart Association recommends increasing the intake of potassium while decreasing the consumption of sodium to improve blood pressure and cardiovascular health. 

Moreover, a study in the United States found that the more sodium people consume in relation to their potassium intake, the higher the risk of all-cause mortality. 

Meanwhile, a high potassium intake has been associated with reduced risk of stroke, protection against loss of muscle mass, and preservation of bone mineral density.
