Did you know grape consumption is linked to healthier diet habits and higher intake of nutrients? A study in the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Food in October 2012 found individuals who consume products made with grapes also have higher intake of the following: dietary fiber, potassium, calcium, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. Grape consumption is associated with higher vegetable, whole grain, seed, and nut intake, as well as a decreased intake of cholesterol, saturated fat, and total fat, compared with adults who did not consume grape products. Grapes can assist in lowering blood pressure, strengthen blood flow, and lower inflammation in men suffering from metabolic syndrome.
Good to know for an easy way of helping many health issues with a simple snack. Have a blessed day!
