Antioxidant: Grape seeds are a great source of oligomeric proanthocyanidins, among the most powerful antioxidants. There is evidence that they can boost immune function, improve circulation, lower cholesterol & blood pressure, and prevent cancer, diabetes and alzheimer's disease.

Is it bad to eat lots of green seedless grapes at night?

Is it bad to eat lots of green seedless grapes at night?

No OD seen yet: The general rule of thumb is that anything in excess is not a good thing. If you are healthy, having some extra grapes (concern of excessive sugar, especially for diabetics) won't do you harm. Grapes contain quite a few antioxidants and some fibers, as well as good roughage (skin). I have not seen or heard of anyone od on grapes yet..So enjoy. Keep healthy. Live well. Good luck.

My boyfriend has the balls of size of 2 grapes what does that mean?

My boyfriend has the balls of size of 2 grapes what does that mean?

That means you...: Have to use better objects of comparison, or actually measure the "balls". That is because grapes come in many sizes, and can be from 0.75 cm to 3.5 cm (some of those hormone-treated grapes are huge). Also, age matters if not already finished with puberty. If "balls" are the size of small grapes, then there may be a problem that his primary care doctor can evaluate.
