Research still continues on the various health benefits of grapes, here are a few benefits of resveratrol which is found in grapes;
1-Speeding up weight loss: Exciting new research by the University of Georgia had found that resveratrol (in combination to soy isoflavones) works on the human body in two ways in order to help immensely with weight loss. Firstly, it drastically reduces the abilities of cells to store fat by an estimate of 130 percent. It also causes the fat cells to disintegrate at a much higher rate, 246 percent higher to be accurate.[irp]
2-Protecting your heart: In a research, resveratrol had demonstrated the complete ability to improve the blood vessel dilation, which allows the blood to flow very easily through the blood vessels. It also has been shown to relax the walls of blood vessels, which in turn lowers the blood pressure and allows for more blood to flow throughout the body. This also, in turn, delivers more nutrients and oxygen to the cells in the body. Another study has also found that only 10 mg of resveratrol resulted in a drastic reduction in the risk factors for heart attacks.
3-Helps clean up the plaques that cause Brain Damage: Studies which had been conducted at the University of Switzerland clearly proved the brain protection ability of resveratrol. They had also found that the resveratrol cleaned up free radicals and plaques that can cause brain damage as well as Alzheimer’s disease. This shows the real power of this nutrient which is often referred to as Reverse it all by several health practitioners.
4-Improving Brain Power: In accordance to a British study, the students that were given resveratrol increased the blood flow to their brains by around 200 percent. The scientists also believe that resveratrol may also help in speeding up the mental responses.
5-Protecting your skin from cancer: In various studies, resveratrol has had an immensely positive effect on cancer. The research also indicates that resveratrol protects the skin from the UVB damaging rays, hence protecting it against skin cancer.
6-Protecting your body from radiation: This potent nutrient known as resveratrol has also been shown to protect the human body against any radiation or radiation therapy when it was used along with radiation treatment of cancer.
7-Help to turn on longevity gene: In one of the studies, the scientist identified the nutrient resveratrol that activated the part of the human body in charge of longevity and survival.
8-Helps fight diabetes: Pre diabetics that were given resveratrol had around 10 percent drop in the blood sugar levels, in accordance to research by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.[irp]
9-Reduce inflammation: Resveratrol also works as an anti-inflammatory which is also one reason why it is effective against heart disease.
10-Helps support muscle recovery: Being an antioxidant, it also supports organs and cells in eliminating the uric acid and various other toxins from within the body hence supporting muscle recovery.
