Drinking a delicious glass of grape juice can be a mouth-puckering treat, but there are also certain key nutrients in grape juice that can lead to various health benefits.
Grape juice is nutrient rich invitamic C (more than 100% of your daily requirement per cup) and dietary fiber. It also contains significant levels of iron, calcium, and protein. 1 cup of this juice also contains about 150 calories, and barely any fat. This juice also contains high levels of anthocyanins, tannins, resveratrol, and other phenolic compounds, all of which act like antioxidants in the body.
Grape juice contains many of the same antioxidants as red wine, including resveratrol and another type of polyphenol, anthocyanins. As with wine, dark-colored juice provides the most health benefits. Research suggests that red and purple grape juices may provide some of the same heart benefits of red wine, including reducing the risk of blood clots; lowering cholesterol; protecting the blood vessels in your heart; and lowering blood pressure.
