Helps with Blood Clotting
The body requires vitamin K to produce the protein and blood clotting agent of prothrombin which is important for blood clotting and bone strength. Anyone taking blood-thinning medication such as warfarin or Coumadin, should refrain from consuming additional vitamin K without first speaking to their doctor
Autumn Seedless Grapes contain relatively large amounts of phytonutrients, especially flavonoids, which slows down the ageing process of human body cells. They also contain quercetin (a flavonoid), which may help protect cells from damage. For instance, there is some evidence that quercetin offers a number of health benefits, including being an anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antioxidant agent.
Improves Cognitive Function
Some research indicates that consumption of resveratrol (sometimes in the form of supplements) may improve memory, attention, moods and cognitive function in older adults.
Regulates Blood Sugar
Research has shown that resveratrol can be helpful for people with type 2 diabetes. Resveratrol may improve glycaemic control and decrease insulin resistance, both of which are beneficial for people with diabetes.
