7. Bolstered Immune System
Your immune system primarily works to fight off foreign invaders in your body, such as bacterial or viral infections. But more than just waging war once you are sick, a strong immune system can actually repel bugs before they get you. And with a daily dose of grapes, you too can become one of those annoying people who never seem to come down with the seasonal cold or flu. Forget about an apple a day.
There are several compounds in grapes that can protect against viral and bacterial infections, including good old vitamin C and the magnificent resveratrol. Other compounds in grapes have actually been found in test tube studies to stop yeast infections, the herpes virus, and chicken pox from taking hold. Grapes may also offer some protection against food-borne illnesses.
