Short-Write: Grapes, The Symbol Of Masculinity

My grandfather bought a vineyard in the late 1970s, and we've been producing vine ever since, but not a single member of my family has questioned the "goodness" of grapes. The curious side of my nature demanded facts! The very first thing I search for whenever I'm doing research is "Is this fruit boosting testosterone or estrogen?".

To my surprise, grapes are perhaps the best fruits to boost testosterone and the quality of the sperm, due to resveratrol from the skin of grapes! Or, at least that's what the "science" says!

However, grapes, especially white small grapes are rich in vitamin C and K! Vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), and B6 can also be found in decent quantities, but what impressed me the most is the amount of potassium and copper! Only a hundred grams of grapes offers 8% of the daily recommended value of potassium and 10% of copper. Manganese can also be found, in dominant quantities.

Grapes, especially red grapes are also a good source of antioxidants, which makes them good at combating cancers, diabetes, and cardiovascular issues.

If you're having high blood pressure, grapes could fix your issue, due to potassium (low potassium levels are linked to high blood pressure). One thing is truly fascinating about grapes! They're full of carbohydrates, and sugar, yet, by consuming grapes our blood sugar levels go down. I'd appreciate an explanation! How is that possible? The Glycemic index of grapes is quite low (53), which means grapes should increase the blood sugar level, yet, studies show the opposite.

Could it be due to resveratrol, which increases the sensitivity of insulin?

In general, I found myself exhausted many times while harvesting grapes. In such moments, I'd eat a few berries, and feel almost an instant boost of energy. My mood would elevate, as well. No wonder famous people during history have loved this fruit!

I cannot explain why the blood sugar level is not going up by grapes (I will,however, try figure it out), but it is a well known fact that it is so. Even in the 1800s, it was known that you could eat any amount of grapes without gaining weight, which led to the conclusion that the sugar from grapes would not be absorbed by the body, or that it could not be used as energy. From that conclusion came the system with grape cures, which was that overfed elderly (mainly) men went to a setup place somewhere along the Northern Mediterranean coast, staying a week or two, eating only grapes. They lost weight and improved cardiovascular health. To my knowledge, this is no longer practised, but perhaps it ought to be reintroduced, because it definitely has its merits.

However, anyone with good access to grapes can do this on his/her own. Two weeks can be a suitable time. Eat only grapes.

Grapes, as sweet as they are, lower blood sugar levels? Wow! Didn't know that. Docs always cautioned eating too much precisely because the sweetness level could make blood sugar shoot up.

Yes, logically we may conclude that the blood sugar levels will go up, but human logic fails very often, for example, the same thinking pattern is applicable to diets. People think "If I don't eat fat and eat carbohydrates, I will lose fat", the opposite is true! I hope Dr. Mictorrani will explain to us why is sugar blood levels decreasing even though grapes are very sweet! Thank you for reading and support! 🤗🤗
