Fruit And Veggies:

People who eat a range of green, red and yellow veggies score highest on tests of cognitive function – including reasoning, attention, memory and language. Rayan notes that you should aim for 6-9 portions a day (up to 500g).

Pistachios, almonds, walnuts and seeds:

These little vessels of vitality have been shown time and again to improve the health of our blood vessels, reduce our blood pressure and improve our blood flow. Pistachios are particularly good (and taste particularly nice), as they’re rich in polyphenols, vitamin E, vitamin C, and selenium.

Muscadinex's insight:

Excerpt: 

 

Wine, and especially red wine, contains compounds that have promising health benefits. Red wine has more potential benefits than white wine or grape juice because of the specific phytochemical compounds found in grape skins that are extracted during fermentation.

Want to know the Health Benefits of Muscadine Grape Seed? | Muscadinex Longevity | Scoop.it
Depression is a serious medical illness that faces millions of people across the globe.
Muscadinex's insight:

Excerpt:

Muscadine grapes were discovered in 1810 in North Carolina, growing in the wild. These grapes are native to the southeast United States and are particularly well-adapted to the hot humid growing conditions of that region. Some research studies have shown potential health-boosting properties of muscadine grape seeds. Muscadine grapes are primarily found fresh in warm or southern climates, such as the southeastern United States or California. Their seeds need to be chewed for their health benefits, but if you aren't fond of munching on grape seeds you may want to take a muscadine grape supplement. Check with your doctor before using muscadine grape seeds to treat a medical condition, especially if you are on medication.

Could Muscadine Grape Seeds Offer Cardiovascular Benefits? | Muscadinex Longevity | Scoop.it

Muscadine grapes have been shown to be more potent in antioxidants than any other variety of grapes.

Muscadinex's insight:

Excerpt: 

 

Muscadine grapes have been shown to be more potent in antioxidants than any other variety of grapes, and laboratory studies have suggested that grape seeds have higher antioxidant capacity than grape skins. Studies in humans have shown improved antioxidant capacity when grape seed supplement is added to the diet, as well as improvements in blood vessel function. However, the studies did not specifically include muscadine grapes, which have extremely high levels of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds when compared to other fruits.

Red Wine Benefits: Will a Glass of Vino a Day, Actually Keep The Doctor Away? | Muscadinex Longevity | Scoop.it
Red wine is proof that God loves us. From skincare to hair, controlling cholesterol to heart health - we've found you reasons to raise a toast with red wine.
Muscadinex's insight:

Excerpt:

 

“Red wine picks up a lot of notes in Indian food, be it spices, berries, aromas or flavours. A full bodied good wine pairs beautifully with Indian curries like Mutton Rezala and Chicken Stews, more so than white wine," recommends Chef Sabyasachi Gorai, owner of Lavaash by Saby. The optimal serving temperature of red wine is 62-68 degrees, which releases the best possible aromatics in the glass without ruining the taste. He adds, “Not a lot of people know this, but the colour of red wine comes from the grape skin that has antioxidant properties, not the grape itself."

Anti Aging: What Secrets Can Telomeres Tell? Revealed here. | Muscadinex Longevity | Scoop.it
Telomeres are now considered the holy grail of longevity. These protective tails on the ends of chromosomes have been found to contain your “cellular age”.
Muscadinex's insight:

Excerpt:

In a study on Organismal Stress and Telomeric Aging, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science USA, researchers found psychological stress could affect cell aging through at least three pathways: immune system, oxidative stress and telomerase (enzyme) activity. Psychological stress could potentially lead to oxidative stress by chronically activating the neuroendocrine stress responses. In short, women who were more stressed had more oxidative damage, shorter telomeres and less telomerase activity.

What are the dramatic health benefits of the Amazing American Muscadine? | Muscadinex Longevity | Scoop.it

The Amazing American Muscadine is Delicious- With Dramatic Health Benefits

Muscadinex's insight:

Excerpt: 

 

It is a striking revelation to researchers that grape vines contain organic substances that resist microbial attacks to include antioxidants that bolster the human immune system. The activated immune system can keep the body healthy and reverse heart damages, arthritis problems and interrupt invasive cancer development. These organic chemical substances in grapevines are trans-located to the grape skin, juice, and seed. It is therefore understandable that human consumption of muscadine skins and grape seeds in some form would transfer the innate, genetic protective system of the organic chemical, compound armor into humans with the same rewards and health benefits to the consumer.

The oil is also a good source of mono- and polysaturated fatty acids, which would make the oil a valuable addition to the edible oil market, said Marty Marshall, a UF professor of food science and human nutrition, in a press release. Salad dressing is one possible way consumers could introduce the oil into their diet, but the problem with this would be figuring out how to manufacture large enough quantities of it.

What are Muscadine Grape Skin Benefits?

What are Muscadine Grape Skin Benefits? | Muscadinex Longevity | Scoop.it
Muscadine grape skin health benefits include anti-inflammatory and anticancer qualities that may help in combatting BPH and prostate cancer.
Muscadinex's insight:

Excerpt:

Muscadine grapes are a rich source of other phytochemicals called anthocyanins which, along with their ability to give the grapes their purple and red colors, have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and have demonstrated anticancer effects as well. Muscadine grapes also reportedly have an extra pair of chromosomes, and this feature is believed to be a reason why muscadine grapes produce phytochemicals not found in other grapes, such as ellagic acid. Ellagic acid is believed to have a role in preventing cancer from developing, growing, and spreading. All of these contribute to muscadine grape skin health benefits.

What are the Health Benefits of Muscadine Grapes? | Muscadinex Longevity | Scoop.it
When you pop into your local market for some grapes, you’re far more likely to head home with the green or red seedless variety than with a bunch of muscadines. Although muscadine grapes aren’t as widely available as other varieties, they’re worth seeking out -- muscadines are significantly more nutritious than the average table...
Muscadinex's insight:

Excerpt:

Muscadine grapes are an excellent source of dietary fiber -- you’ll get about 105 calories and 7 grams of fiber from a serving of 35 muscadines, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. With their edible seeds and relatively thick skins, muscadine grapes are particularly high in insoluble fiber, the kind that promotes bowel regularity and helps prevent constipation, hemorrhoids and diverticulitis. By comparison, a 104-calorie serving of seedless grapes -- about 30 grapes or 1 cup, according to the USDA -- provides 1.4 grams of fiber. This means that a single muscadine has as much fiber as five seedless grapes.

Muscadinex's insight:

Excerpt:

Resveratrol shows some very mixed effects on athletic performance. On the one hand, some studies suggest an increase in muscular power and aerobic endurance, as well as glucose absorption. On the other hand, other research found resveratrol failed to aid performance adaptations over time. Worse still, another study actually found that resveratrol reduced the long-term benefits of exercise, although the effect wasn’t very large in practical terms.

Muscadinex's insight:

Excerpt:

 

Muscadines are unique in that they have a different phytochemical makeup than all other grapes. In addition to having 20 pairs of chromosomes (rather than 19), muscadines also have 6x the resveratrol content of typical red grapes. I've written a bunch about resveratrol, which belongs to a group of components called "phytoalexins." Phytoalexins are produced by some plants to help protect it from attacks from bacteria, fungi, insects, harsh weather, and other types of environmental stress.
