RESVERATROL is a compound that tends to be concentrated mostly in the skins and seeds of grapes and berries. It has many health benefits of which some are listed below. I made this refreshing drink for a change today & yes, I was refreshed ! Combination of red grapes and fresh lemon juice to scare those cancer cells away ! Below recipe good for 2 people.
▪︎Resveratrol may help lower blood pressure. It may help in this blood-pressure-lowering effect by helping to produce more nitric oxide, which causes blood vessels to relax.
▪︎ Has a positive effect on blood fats in a healthy way. As an antioxidant, it also may decrease the oxidation of “bad” LDL cholesterol. LDL oxidation contributes to plaque buildup in artery walls.
▪︎ It protects the brain. Several studies have suggested that resveratrol can help slow down age-related cognitive decline.
▪︎ Resveratrol has been shown to have several benefits for diabetes, at least in animal studies. These benefits include increasing insulin sensitivity and preventing complications from diabetes. One explanation for how resveratrol works is that it may stop a certain enzyme from turning glucose into sorbitol, a sugar alcohol.
▪︎ Resveratrol has potential to reduce inflammation and prevent damage to joints thereby can help promote health to joints and reduce risk for arthritis.
▪︎Resveratrol may inhibit cancer cell growth. Studies on animals have shown it may prevent cancer cells from replicating and spreading . It can change the gene expression in cancer cells to inhibit their growth. Resveratrol may also interfere with the way certain hormones are expressed, which may keep hormone-dependent cancers from spreading.
▪︎ 1 cup fresh red grapes, organic if possible
