Check out this interesting article on
CNN.com; according to Jane Freedman, "Purple grape juice contains the same powerful disease-fighting antioxidants, called flavonoids, that are believed to give wine many of its heart-friendly benefits... Grape juice can also lower the risk of developing the blood clots that lead to heart attacks."
You can also buy flavonoid vitamin pills at Whole Foods or a vitamin store.
I'm starting to take grape juice for medicinal purposes (chloresterol). Someone told me that for maximum benefit it should be 'red' grape juice, not 'purple'--as in concord grapes. . I haven't been able to pin down the difference since the terms tend to be used interchangably. Any factual advice appreciated.
