Both red and black grapes contain powerful antioxidants and resveratrol, which helps to prevent both the narrowing and hardening of the arteries. Ellagic acid, which has anti-cancer properties, is also contained in grapes. They do, however, have a very high sugar content.

Grapes are a good source of potassium.

Grapes have many health benefits, but have a high sugar content and should therefore be eaten in moderation.
