Grape Juice Mimics Wine for the Heart

April 2007
Tufts University Health & Nutrition Letter;Apr2007, Vol. 25 Issue 2, p3
The article looks at preliminary research from France that suggests grape juice may have similar health effects as red wine, without the alcohol. The researchers tested Concord grape juice and found that polyphenols in the juice activate blood-vessel cells to produce nitric oxide, much as polyphenols in wine do. The nitric oxide boosts blood-vessel health and combats high blood pressure, helping to protect against cardiovascular disease. The research was funded by Welch Foods.
