About the Muscadine Grape
Often called "America's First Grape," muscadine grapes thrive in hot climates of the southeastern United States. This unique environment makes them special in their ability to heal themselves from disease, bacteria, and fungi that often plague European grapes.
Many nutritionists have found muscadine grapes are loaded with more healthy compounds than other much-touted foods such as blueberries, goji berries, green tea, red wine and dark chocolate. Muscadine grapes and their seeds are one of nature's best sources of antioxidants and possess anti-inflammatory properties. Compared to other grapes, muscadine grapes have 40 times more resveratrol --- the polyphenol, found in red wine that is proven to benefit cardiovascular health, blood sugar levels and the aging process.
