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!
