A big favourite amongst kids, grapes make a great healthy snack and when you buy organic you don't need to worry about any hidden nasties on the fruit skin!
Reasons to eat grapes:
Grapes contain powerful antioxidants called polyphenols which potentially will both prevent and slow down the progression of certain cancers including lung, endometrial, prostate, pancreatic and most of our digestive tract.
High quercetin content makes grapes helpful in the fight against inflammatory diseases - particularly those of the cardiovascular system reducing the risk of death from heart disease or stroke
Animal studies have shown this same compound is helpful to alleviate the symptoms of allergies although human studies have yet to be done.
Grapes are one of a group of fruits studied in people with Type 2 Diabetes. They found that despite the relatively high sugar content of this fruit, consuming three servings each week actually reduced the associated risks of the disease.
