Muscadine Antioxidant Grape Juice
The Muscadine antioxidant grape, it's small, it's unassuming and it's a secret grown right in America's own back yard and now used for Antioxidant Grape Juice.
"America's First Grape," the muscadine, was already growing wild in America before European settlers arrived back in the 1500's, and they started cultivating it soon after that. Since then, generations and generations of Americans have grown them, but only in the last few years has the true power and potential of this treasure really been discovered.
The tale of a grape…
The fascinating history and secret power of the Muscadine grape is a story everyone should know. Unlike any other grape in the world Muscadines grapes (vitis rotundifolia) grow in the harshest of conditions; conditions in which common table grapes (vitis vinifera) cannot grow. They grow in the southeastern United States and are well-adapted to warm, humid climates. So, what protective strategies does this survivor grape contain that allows it to thrive where others can’t?
Muscadine fruits are 1 – 1.5 inches in diameter and are armed with thick, tough skin and several hard, oblong seeds. Their thicker skin allows it to protect itself against heat, UV radiation, humidity, insects and fungi. Muscadines also contain 20 sets of chromosomes compared to 19 in other grape varieties. So scientists wonder, what is this grape doing with the extra genetic material? Perhaps this is the key to its remarkable potency against inflammation, tumor growth and diabetes.
The All-American Grape For Antioxidant Grape Juice
Muscadines are a Native American grape and may be the only fruit that originated in the United States and nowhere else. Native Americans clearly used the wild muscadines as a food source and processed them for winter stores. Could it be that a powerful defender of our health can be found in our own backyard?
* Muscadine has one of the highest ORAC scores of any fruit produced by Mother Nature.
*The Antioxidant Grape Juice provides a superior content of specific antioxidant compounds, which means both a higher level and better blend of antioxidants to fight the free radicals that enter the human body.
* One of nature's best sources of resveratrol, and studies on resveratrol have linked it to a healthy heart and blood vessels.
Foods with a high ORAC like antioxidant grape juice, score may be able to protect cells and their components from oxidative damage. Oxygen radicals are chemicals that form naturally inside the body through the process of oxidation. Everyday functions such as digestion and physical activity produce oxygen radicals. Daily exposure to polluted air, rancid food and oxidizing radiation from the sun and electrical appliances also contribute.
An easy to understand example of oxidation is to imagine rust attacking metal. When the rust eats away at the metal, the metal starts to weaken and decay until it can no longer work. This is what happens to our body when free radicals attack it. Organs, cells and other parts of the body can be weakened by oxidation. This leads to diseases such as cancer, skin and heart diseases, senile dementia and osteoarthritis.
As it turns out, muscadine grapes are an outstanding source of multiple protective antioxidants. There is a growing interest among academic scientists and researchers in the study of the nutra-ceutical benefits of muscadine antioxidant grape juice because of their unique range of vitamins, beneficial oils, fiber, nutritious sugars, proteins and potent phenolic compounds (antioxidant phyto-chemicals).
The Muscadine Is A Natural “Fighter”
Our country’s current epidemic levels of chronic disease have reached alarming rates. Presently, 109 million Americans (more than a third of the population) suffer from a chronic disease, such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.
A “Fighter” against Cancer
*Contains anti-cancer compounds including ellagic acid, resveratrol and flavinoids
*Blocks the activity of enzymes involved in the spread of cancer
*Blocks pathways involved in prostate cancer development
A “Fighter” for Longevity and Anti-Aging
*Helps avoid early development of chronic diseases.
*Effects adaptive changes in gene expression that help defend the body against ill effects of aging.
* Phyto-chemicals improve DNA repair by activating a pathway that increases lifespan in human cells.
A “Fighter” for Cardiovascular Health
*Reduces inflammation in blood vessels to reduce the threat of atherosclerosis
*Reduces oxidative stress on the heart and blood vessels
*Inhibits LDL cholesterol oxidation
*Maintains the health of the lining of blood vessels to keep blood pressure normal
*Decreases inappropriate blood clotting
A “Fighter” against Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes
* Slows sugar absorption
*Increases activity of insulin
*Tends to reduce blood sugar
*Has potential to help with weight control
Muscadines have evolved over hundreds of years to withstand the harsh conditions of their environment. Clearly, their unique nutritional properties separate it from other grapes and researchers believe that they have only scratched the surface of the potential of muscadine grapes.
