High Antioxidant Contents May Prevent Chronic Diseases:

Antioxidants are compounds found in plants, for example. They help repair the damage to your cells caused by free radicals, which are harmful molecules that cause oxidative stress.

Oxidative stress has been associated with several chronic diseases including diabetes, cancer and heart disease (4)...

Grapes are high in a number of powerful antioxidant compounds. In fact, over 1,600 beneficial plant compounds have been identified in this fruit (5, 6)..

The highest concentration of antioxidants is found in the skin and seeds. For this reason, most of the research on grapes has been done using seed or skin extracts (7).

Red grapes contain higher numbers of antioxidants due to the anthocyanins that give them their color (5).




The antioxidants in grapes remain present even after fermentation, which is why red wine is also high in these compounds (8)...

One of the antioxidants in this fruit is resveratrol, which is classified as a polyphenol.

Numerous studies have been performed on its benefits, showing that resveratrol protects against heart disease, lowers blood sugar and protects against the development of cancer (9).

Grapes also contain vitamin C, beta-carotene, quercetin, lutein, lycopene and ellagic acid, which are powerful antioxidants as well (6).
