1. Grapes are high in antioxidants
Registered dietitian Melissa Rifkin, RD, says that one of the grape’s biggest nutritional perks is that they’re high in antioxidants, which benefit the body in many ways. One is that it helps ward off high, chronic inflammation—the root cause of chronic illnesses and diseases. Antioxidants also directly benefit the brain and heart, protecting against both cognitive decline and heart disease.
2. They help support a healthy immune system
Registered dietitian Alexandra Caspero, RD, says that one antioxidant in particular that grapes contain is vitamin C. “Vitamin C plays a role in both innate immunities [what you’re born with] and adaptive immunity [what you acquire following virus exposure], though it’s important to know that it doesn’t prevent illnesses like the common cold,” she says. So while you can’t rely on snacking on grapes to prevent sickness altogether, grapes could help your immune system do a better job at fighting off illnesses and recovering faster.
