Eat Grapes, Feel Better?

Eat Grapes, Feel Better?

Aging is associated with a number of chronic diseases felt to be related to chronic

inflammation and accumulated metabolic stress. Such diseases include, but are not

limited to, diabetes, heart disease, and dementia.

A recent review of the scientific literature has shown how grape-derived products exert

a beneficial effect thereby providing some protection against these conditions.

Improving circulation, reducing abnormal protein deposition in the brain, and

counteracting the body’s production of inflammatory chemicals are felt to be some of

the underlying mechanisms responsible for this.

Resveratrol is the most commonly discussed beneficial grape derivative. However,

there are many others (with chemical names too complicated to discuss here)

Widely available, inexpensive, and easily consumed; why not make a handful of grapes a

part of your day?
