Grapes Offer Sun Protection

Natural chemicals contained in grapes can help your skin defend itself against sun damage.

Research at the University of Barcelona shows that phytonutrients in grapes can slow down the formation of destructive reactive oxygen species (ROS) that form in skin cells. ROS may be linked to sun damage, skin cancer and cell death.

The Spanish scientists believe that these flavonoids can be used in skin-care products that keep the sun’s ultraviolet radiation from negatively affecting skin cells. If you eat grapes, these compounds can also be taken up by the skin and promote better skin health.
