Grapes By The Patio

One of the many things that I like staying at the house of Jim and Charleen was this grapevine. It was so wonderful sitting by their patio while you eat some sweet grapes right within your reach.
.
I always love grapes. Health.LearningInfo.org says that eating fresh grapes may prevent the accumulation of harmful oxidized cholesterol as well as the development of atherosclerotic lesions. Naturally occuring antioxidants in fresh grapes known as polyphenols are believed to be responsible for this beneficial impact.
.
Grapes may also be potent against viruses and tumors because of their high concentration of another polyphenol, tannin. Therefore, let us eat a good amount of fresh grapes regularly.
