Hi friends, I am leaving for Mahabaleshwar, nicknamed the strawberry country today, the 16th Feb. Hence, the posts in advance. Will be back on the 20th to post lovely photos from the Strawberry Country. Have a nice weekend.

Grapes are a rich source of nutrients. They are high in phytonutrients, antioxidants and they have ellagic acid, a powerful antioxidant good for arteries that helps decrease inflammation.

Reseachers comparing diets in Western countries have discovered that although thew French tend to eat higher levels of animal fat, surrprisingly the incidence of heart disease remains low in France. Scientists believe the reason is the greater consumption of red wine in France.

Something in grapes helps to reduce cholesterol levels in the body and thus slows the buildup of deposits in the arteries. Compounds such as resveratrol, discovered in grapes, have been positively linked to fighting cancer, hearyt disease, degenerative nerve disease, arthritis and other ailments.
