What Are The Benefits Of Muscadine Grapes
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. More research is needed but it is very safe, non-toxic & worth trying. See www.Umm.Edu/altmed/articles/grape-seed-000254.Htm.
Possibly: According to the mayo clinic, research studies suggest that red and purple grape juices may provide some of the same heart benefits of red wine, including: reducing the risk of blood clots; reducing low-density lipoprotein (ldl, or "bad") cholesterol; preventing damage to blood vessels in your heart; and, helping maintain a healthy blood pressure.
Similar to wine...: Some studies suggest that grape juice might have as much of the nutrients as found in wine but w/o alcohol. However, no studies have proven any clinical outcome benefit.

NO: It's the alcohol that counts. The idea that "the magic ingredient" is in the grape skin has been disproved.
Yes: Grapes are high in water content and add to the filling feeling. They also contain fiber which is good for slowing the digestion and adding to the feeling of fullness as well. grapes also contain antioxidants that prevent many types of cancer. The grapes that are used to make wine contain resveratrol which is proven to be good for the heart.See 2 more doctor answers

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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Really rare: Grapes are not particularly allergenic but there is almost certainly someone who got allergic to grapes at some time (could also be allergy to fungal spores on the grape surface). Easy to test: ingest a grape or two and see if the symptom comes back again.
