A diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables has been linked to a reduced risk of various conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer.

Like other fruits and vegetables, grapes are a good source of fiber and water.

Antioxidants and other nutrients in grapes may make them particularly healthful, although more research is needed to confirm some of their benefits.

Cancer

Grapes contain powerful antioxidants known as polyphenols. These are thought to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. One of these is resveratrol. It is found in the skins of red grapes.

Resveratrol is also present in red wine. Few studies have looked at the association between red wine and cancer risk in humans, but it has been shown that high intakes of alcohol on a consistent basis can increase risk of cancer. Moderation is key.

Another natural anti-inflammatory that occurs in grapes is the flavonoid quercetin.

Heart health

Animal studies have indicated that quercetin and resveratrol may reduce the risk of antherosclerosis  and protect against the damage caused by low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad” cholestrol.

Grapes contain fiber and potassium, both of which support heart health.

Blood pressure

Increasing potassium intake may help in reducing the negative effects of too much sodium in the diet.

Grapes have a high potassium ,they can help reduce the effects of sodium in people with high blood pressure.

Fiber is important for  a healthy cardiovascular system, including heart health and blood pressure. Grapes are a good source of fiber and can maintain blood pressure level.

 Constipation

Grapes contain good water and fiber. These can help people stay hydrated, keep bowel movements regular, and reduce the risk and can help to get rid of constipation.

Allergies

Because of the anti-inflammatory effects of quercetin,  that consuming grapes may help to alleviate symptoms of allergies, including runny nose, watery eyes.

However, those who consumed three servings a week of , grapes  or pears had a 7-percent lower risk of type 2 diabetes compared with those who did not.
