There are various types of grapes, different colors, and flavors. There are black, purple, green as well as pink grapes. Regardless of the type of grapes, you can be sure that berries are full of essential vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin B and folic acid. About 100g of grapes contain close to 20-25% daily vitamin C requirement.
The most significant minerals present in the grapes are manganese and potassium. These minerals are essential for maintaining good health, reducing the risk of hypertension, helping depression, and acting on immunity. Other minerals found in grapes include copper, zinc, calcium, phosphorus, iron, and selenium.
Studies have shown that the grape extract reduces the growth of 14 different types of harmful bacteria commonly found in the human intestine and stomach, such as E coli, Salmonella and H. pylori (which causes the stomach ulcer).
Ultraviolet sun rays are the cause of skin problems, from skin cancer, burns and solar erythema to premature aging of the dermis and epidermis. It is good news that flavonoids discovered in grapes can reduce the amount of damage to cells exposed to this radiation. So eat it as much as possible!
