Why is Grape Juice Good for You?
Grapes contain powerful antioxidants that help protect the body from free radicals. These harmful substances can cause damage to cells, leading to cancer, heart disease, and other issues (1). One of those is vitamin C (also known as Ascorbic Acid) which is essential for a fully functional immune system (2) and healthy skin (3).
Another important antioxidant purple grapes have in spades is resveratrol. This well-studied compound is known to reduce inflammation and help protect against many chronic diseases, like cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, and heart disease (4). The regulation of inflammation is tied to reducing the development of these diseases, as well as ameliorating the effects of aging (5).
Purple grape juice is thought to promote cardiovascular health by reducing blood clotting risk (6), lowering cholesterol levels (7), and maintaining healthy blood pressure. One way blood pressure is regulated is thanks to its potassium content. This mineral is vital to reducing blood pressure by removing excess sodium and relaxing blood vessel walls (8).
Another key component of purple grape juice is manganese. This mineral is vital for the formation of bone as well as brain neurotransmitter production (9). So enjoying a fresh cup of purple grape juice is great for your body, head to toe!
Best Juicer for Grapes
I made The Good Grape using the Tribest Shine juicer. I love this small but mighty juicer!
The Tribest Shine juicer gives a lot of power and performance for its size. It’s quiet, compact, and both easy to use and clean. This vertical cold press machine gives good yield and juice quality. It also makes single juices or small batches quickly.
One of Tribest Shine’s most appealing features is its price. It’s one of the industry’s most inexpensive juicers that is also high quality, backed by a 3-year home use warranty.
The Tribest Shine is my go-to travel juicer, too. I just pack it in my carry-on bag so I can have fresh juice no matter where I go!
