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.
