Muscadines are one of the South’s best-kept secrets. Native to Southeastern United States, the uniqueness of this powerful fruit doesn’t stop at its name. The list of nutritional benefits include helping joint and muscle pain, controlling normal blood pressure, enhancing nerve and muscle functions, helping with digestion and much more. 

Muscadines offer a natural remedy for dealing with many signs of aging, including:

Inflammation

Many don’t realize that inflammation is a normal and necessary part of our immune defense, and is involved in healing and regeneration. Acute inflammation is necessary for fighting infections, healing wounds, and ensuring healthy tissue. However, it is chronic inflammation that cause so many discomfort and seems to come along with injury or age.

Chronic inflammation is at the core of many health issues, including cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and diabetes, degenerative joint and muscular diseases, pain perception, cognitive decline, mental health problems including depression, and the initiation and progression of cancer.

Quiet as its kept. the Muscadine grape has strong anti-inflammatory properties. These biological properties have different advantages whether using skin, seed, or juice.The many anti-inflammatory properties are fundamental for the health supportive activities of muscadine products. The strong anti-inflammatory effects of muscadine grape have been documented in a broad number of experimental and clinical models.

Heart Health

Muscadine grape products have been studied for effects on markers for cardiovascular health. The muscadine seed contains tocotrienols, known for the beneficial effects on blood lipids. The relaxing and dilating effect on arteries may be related to improved function of the blood vessel walls, as well as reduced build-up of arterial plaque, and may also be related to beneficial effect on normalizing blood pressure; however, these areas are currently under further research.

Cancer Prevention

A number of cellular functions go astray when a cell in the body goes from functioning normally to become a cancer cell. Compounds in Muscadine grapes have been shown to harness dysfunctional cells, to some extent by killing them, and also to limit their spread in the body.
