They are a powerhouse of antioxidants and vitamins A, B6, B12, C, E, potassium, iron, magnesium, and fibre.

But how can they help you in leading a healthy life? Well, Parul Malhotra Bahl, Nutritionist and Certified Diabetes Educator has all the answers for you.

Here’s what she told Health Shots about the potent health and beauty benefits of black grapes.

1. They offer protective benefits against heart diseases

Black grapes contain generous amounts of resveratrol and quercetin, both antioxidant compounds that help reduce atherosclerosis risk and protect against the damage caused by high LDL cholesterol levels in the bloodstream. The high levels of potassium and fibre in black grapes helps in regulating blood pressure.

2. Helps control mood swings and headaches

If you are someone who often struggles with PMS symptoms like mood swings and headaches, black grapes could come to your rescue. The riboflavin in black grapes is also very useful for those who tend to suffer from frequent headaches and migraines.

3. May protect against cancer

Studies have shown that the antioxidants and carotenoids present in black grapes prevent the production of free radicals that cause cancer. Thus, black grapes may reduce the risk of getting certain cancers, due to the presence of antioxidants and carotenoids.

4. Boon for skin and hair

The secret ingredient in black grapes is the potent grapeseed oil. Black grapeseed oil is rich in antioxidants and vitamin E that helps maintain your scalp health by increasing blood circulation, preventing hair fall and split ends, as well as early greying. This oil also helps to promote hair growth and works well for those who face hair loss.

What’s more, the compounds like proanthocyanidins and resveratrol in black grapes shield your skin against harmful ultraviolet rays. This helps to reduce dark spots and pigmentation.

The high vitamin C content in black grapes also keeps those wrinkles away, rejuvenates skin cells, and increases skin elasticity.

5. Supports bone health

Black grapes are packed with vitamin K, which is why this fruit helps to support bone health. In fact, as per a study titled ‘Vitamin K intake and hip fractures in women: a prospective study’, women with lower intake of vitamin K suffered from a high risk of hip fractures. So, have more of black grapes ladies!

So ladies, sit back with a big bowl of black grapes and enjoy all its benefits!
