Grape Health Benefits

Feed Your Heart With Grapes

The grape is one of the oldest fruits and grape health benefits are well worth getting to know. The humble grape remains a popular food, medicine and drink the world over.

A recent study showed that rats fed a diet mixed with a blend of powdered green, red, and black table grapes had lower blood pressure, better heart function, reduced inflammation throughout their bodies, and far less signs of heart muscle damage than the rats fed the otherwise same salty diet but without grapes.

What's more, the rats that received hydrazine with a salty diet also had lower blood pressure but, significantly, their hearts were not protected from damage like those in the grape-supplemented group.
