What's So Good About Grapes?

By Brandi Goodman 

Grapes are among the list of the most commonly purchased fruits. Along with apples and bananas, grapes top the charts of fruits that shoppers buy regularly. Roughly 65 percent of people in the U.S. buy them. While you may simply enjoy the taste, there are many advantages the purple or green bite-size foods provide. They truly make an ideal snack worth adding to your cart more often.

They Benefit Your Heart Health

Resveratrol is found in grapes. This polyphenol protects against increasing levels of bad cholesterol. It works to lower LDL and in turn decreases your heart disease risk. Eat plenty of the small fruit pieces and you'll lower your blood pressure, too. It's particularly beneficial for your heart health. 

They're Advantageous for Your Eyes

The resveratrol isn't just intended to help your heart. It's worthwhile for your eyes as well. Free radicals get neutralized by the antioxidants found inside of grapes. It works to reduce damage to various parts of your eye, including the retina. Eat more grapes if you hope to prevent age-related eye disease and keep your vision sharp. 

They're Ideal for Keeping Weight Down

Finding low-calorie snacks is important when you're trying to keep your weight down. With just 100 calories in a full cup, grapes make an ideal snack. They contain flavonoids that can further aid in weight loss. You can enjoy the fruit when you want without feeling guilty about it.

They Hydrate Your Skin

Proper hydration is key for skin health. With such a high water content, and vital phytonutrients that aim to protect cells of the skin, grapes are worthwhile in this endeavor. They can also help with acne and reducing damage from the sun's rays due to the resveratrol that's been mentioned. 

They Help Fight Cancer

Cancer is far too present in today's world. It's important to find ways to combat it, and grapes can help do just that. The antioxidants within the fruit work to slow cancer growth and prevent disease from becoming widespread throughout the body. Skin cancer, liver cancer, stomach, and colon cancer as well can especially be helped with grape consumption. 

Improving your health has to start somewhere. If adding grapes to your shopping list more often can bring all of these benefits, it's a wonder why even more people aren't enjoying helpings of the small fruit. Get all the grapes you want and bring the goodness of them to your life.
