2. Red Grapes
Grapes contain powerful antioxidants known as polyphenols that can contribute to the regression or prevention of certain types of cancers. Polyphenols can also minimise the risk of cardiovascular disease by preventing platelet buildup and lowering blood pressure through its anti-inflammatory activities.
The flavonoid quercetin in grapes is known to be an anti-inflammatory agent that can reduce the risk of heart related conditions such as atherosclerosis. Another polyphenol, known as resveratrol can inhibit free radical formation in the body. Interestingly enough, the highest antioxidant content in grapes is concentrated in the skin and seeds so try to include these in the diet when using grapes.
