The plus of grapes for wellness and beauty.

Grapes contain a trio of important cosmetic substances: in the pulp are the procyanidins – able to catch the free radicals that the cosmetic industry adds to creams, serums and masks - and polyphenols such as resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant, while in seeds there is oil rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (grape seed oil) which nourishes and makes the skin elastic. Skins and seeds are also processed specifically for the preparation of mud-baths, soothing body masks and creams used to tone, smooth the body and fight cellulite.

But grapes do their best at the table, where stand out among other foods for the content in substances useful to the nervous system (lecithin and phosphoric acid), easily digestible sugars (glucose, fructose, mannose), a rich pool of vitamins (A, B1, B2, PP, C) and mineral salts such as potassium, magnesium, iron, iodine and phosphorus. That’s why in traditional medicine it is considered a wonderful natural tonic!

Useful in autumnal detox, grapes have also purifying, antibacterial and digestive properties that explain why, since ancient times, they were considered a true food-medicine.

For the content in silicon and phosphoric acid they strengthen nails and hair, while, for the concentration in tannins and enocyanin (the natural black color of grapes) they stimulate intestinal motility favoring more lightness and well-being.
