Is red wine really good for you? Red wine is made from red grapes. Red grapes are powerful nutritional boosters and are loaded with antioxidants that slow down the aging process when eaten with other antioxidant type foods and on a consistent basis. But is wine created from grapes good for you. Absolutely not!

The amount of wine you would have to drink, to receive any nutrition value from the grapes, far exceeds the legal limit. And by then it surely would be counterproductive on your health since alcohol abuse is the cause of many health ailments.

Why Don’t They Tell Us That Grapes or Grape Juice Is Good For Us?

It is so discouraging to keep hearing how red wine is good for you. I bet the alcoholics just eat these advertisements all up. What happened to the part about how alcohol causes liver, brain, kidney, vein, skin, and eventually system failure? If they continue telling people how good wine is for your health it may very well create alcoholics in people.

Why don’t they make such a big fuss about how good red grape juice is for you? At least you can drink five glasses of grape juice and not be harming your health or anyone else’s health for that matter. Besides that you may even benefit from the antioxidant power of the grapes. Better yet, why not just go straight to the source? Grapes!!

Juice Organically Grown Grapes Each Morning

Even better than concentrated grape juice is juicing your own grapes and other berries, or simply just popping those little red juicy berries right into your mouth. Juicing gives you the most antioxidant effect from the grapes? When you juice the grapes you are juicing the seeds right along with the grapes. The seeds and the skins carry the most antioxidant properties.

Now were talking—let’s get healthy! Red grapes are excellent for your health and juicing grapes three or more times a week may make your skin look better and may even make you feel better, if…if…if you are already eating a good daily diet. But grapes alone are not going to prevent disease anymore than drinking a glass or two of red wine each night will.

The key to good health is lifestyle. To get positively healthy one must participate in good eating habits and make it a regular lifestyle.

What Is The Big Deal About Reserveratrol Found In Grapes?

Last week 60 Minutes had a scientist raving about the anti-aging powers of an agent in grapes called reserveratrol that prevents disease and aging in mice. They are going to make a pill using reserveratrol and like magic this pill will make us look and feel younger, and help us to live longer too.

The seeds and skin of the grapes is where reserveratrol is found. Do you know how many natural foods have an agent in them that has the same antioxidant effect? Let me just name a few.

Kale, almonds, blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, broccoli, apples, spinach, cabbage, strawberries, pomegranates, avocados, alfalfa sprouts, brussel sprouts, seaweed, and sweet potatoes. But wait, there’s more!

The pill is not natural. Would you rely on a pill to prevent disease? Why take an unnatural substance when you can eat your way to good health through natural foods? I don’t believe there will ever be a pill that will live for us. The best way to take control of your health and overcome disease is to take control of your health through personal responsibility.

That means to eat a good daily diet. Incorporate foods that are high in antioxidants together with eating a balanced whole foods diet. Exercise, de-stress, juice, sprout, and drink lots of pure water, and get plenty of sunshine on your skin.
