Purple Grape Juice

Apparently purple grape juice has the most antioxidants of any of the juices. We may have already suspected that but it is good to have an article like this to confirm it. Purple grape juice may help prevent heart disease, and it may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease by up to 76%. That is great.

Welch’s, which is not a neutral observer in all this, nevertheless has some interesting information on their website.

This website says that grape juice may contain more resveratrol than is contained in many wines. And it gives you a link where you can order grape juice concentrate direct from growers. That is wonderful, although I would rather have organic if I could. Apparently one quart of concentrate can make more than one gallon of juice drink.

Here are other articles for your reference.

The only problem with the grape juice, besides its not being organic, is that it contains a significant number of calories. So whatever you choose to do with your diet, you need to balance the number of calories you take in with the number of calories you actually need. Otherwise you might gain weight.

I have been looking at the purple grape juice recently in the grocery store. I would drink it occasionally. It is important to get your nourishment from a variety of sources. Besides, it is cheaper than buying a bottle of wine, and a lot safer in some respects.
