Grape skins are a really good source of antioxidants which remove free radicals from your body. They can stop these molecules from damaging your DNA, a potential cause for cancers.
Studies have shown that numerous health benefits from grapes come from a category of phytonutrients called polyphenols. Three in particular seem to be most important in grapes: flavinoids, phenolic acids, and resveratrol. Flavinoids, responsible for the purple color of grapes, and resveratrol have been found to decrease the risk of heart disease. They reduce clumping of platelets and harmful blood clots, and protects LDL cholesterol from free-radical damage. They also provide the consumer with Manganese, Vitamin C, Vitamin B1, Potassium, and Vitamin B6. Most of the nutrients are stored in the skin of the grapes, and any grape product (i.e. juice, wine) can give you the health effects of the fruit.
