From California Table Grape Commission: Science is now revealing what we’ve perceived intuitively for centuries:  Grapes are very, very good for us!  Research has shown that grapes of all colors – red, green and black – are a natural source of beneficial components called polyphenols, which are also antioxidants.  Grape polyphenols appear to protect the health and function of our cells.  That sounds pretty basic – which it is – but how these influential compounds accomplish the job is both complex and fascinating.  What’s exciting for us is that grape polyphenols may contribute to a healthy heart, and may help defend against a variety of age-related and other illnesses.  Today, research is ongoing to uncover even more links between grapes and heart, eye, brain, and joint health, and much more.
