Grapes, beneficial properties

The grape skin is rich in flavonoids, a set of compounds with strong antioxidant power. Among the flavonoids present in grapes, I point out anthocyanin, proanthocyanidin and resveratrol.

Resveratrol is among the most studied flavonoids for its beneficial effects in countering degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and arteriosclerosis. Just think that there are many magazines that focus on the question "where resveratrol is found "and, returning to its beneficial effects, the University of Turin (to name one!) dedicated a page to the theme "Cardioprotective properties of resveratrol" highlighting its mechanisms of action.

Resveratrol improves blood circulation and prevents clot formation by reducing the risk of thrombosis and ischemia. It has been defined as an "anti-tumor substance" because the same mechanism that prevents atherosclerotic lesions also counteracts the spread of tumor metastases.

Being a flavonoid, it is a powerful antioxidant, among other effects, it is able to inhibit the alteration of LDL-cholesterol thus preventing degeneration of the cardiovascular system.

The scientific community points the magnifying glass on resveratrol for its ability to prevent or slow down the progressive degeneration of brain cells typical of diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and senile dementia.

The scheme of thegrape care, structured in this way, it allows to increase the quantity of grapes ingested within a few days. Start by consuming 500 grams of grapes per day: the first 250 in the morning and the other half divided into two snacks a day. By doing this, you decrease the amount of foods you normally introduce into your daily diet. In the following days, gradually increase the quantity of grapes until you reach 1 kg of grapes consumed on the seventh day and 2 kg during the second week. With the progressive increase of the grapes, gradually abandon the other foods.
