The next time you have a yearning for fresh fruit, consider grabbing some grapes. According to a new study, not only are they tasty, but they can also help you live longer.

In a Foods journal study, adding two cups of grapes to a high-fat diet reduced fatty liver, improved antioxidant gene levels, and prolonged lifespan.

+ + +

According to EurekAlert!, Dr. John Pezzuto of Western New England University estimated that eating grapes frequently could add four or five years to a person's life.

Laura McDermott MS, RDN, CD, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, states that this will provide even more motivation for people to focus on consuming a wide variety of meals.

Grapes' antioxidant concentration makes them anti-inflammatory, says McDermott. Grapes contain resveratrol, catechins, quercetin, and anthocyanins, says McDermott.

+ + +

Grapes' antioxidants help fight free radicals, minimize oxidative stress, and reduce inflammation when combined with a balanced diet.

+ + +

Grapes are beneficial because they include phytonutrients, which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics, helping to keep your cells and DNA healthy.

McDermott believes antioxidants are one of the coolest elements of food because they reduce inflammation and oxidative stress.

+ + +

This study and others employing grape antioxidants used 'normal' amounts, so you can enjoy the advantages with just a cup or two.
