The quick snack Resveratrol packed

Why should you snack on grapes? YES, GRAPES! Grapes are rich in a phytonutrient called anthocyanin, an antioxidant which is also found in dark and red fruits (such as strawberries). The grape has in its skin a substance called resveratrol, which is a kind of anti-inflammatory. A good natural option for the athlete who is concerned with disease prevention. But in order to get the most out of the fruit, it is necessary to eat the grape with the skin or to drink the grape juice – which is more caloric.

According to WebMD, Resveratrol is part of a group of compounds called polyphenols. They’re thought to act like antioxidants, protecting the body against damage that can put you at higher risk for things like cancer and heart disease. It’s in the skin of red grapes, but you can also find it in peanuts and berries.
