Grapes and Grape Products Show Exciting Potential in Optimizing Health
Date:9/10/2009

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- While consumption of grapes and grape products has long been associated with a healthy lifestyle, a new supplement published in the September issue of the Journal of Nutrition provides further evidence that grapes and grape products may play a key role in optimizing health by mediating beneficial biological responses. The vast array of naturally occurring plant chemicals in grapes and grape products are thought to be responsible for the beneficial effects observed. The potential areas of beneficial impact include cardiovascular health, cognitive function in older people, cancer, inflammation, diabetes, and dental health.

The current Journal of Nutrition supplement highlights key presentations made at a meeting of researchers from academia and advisory members from government, who gathered together earlier this year to present and discuss research on the links between consumption of grapes and grape products, diet and health, and disease prevention. The workshop was sponsored by the National Grape and Wine Initiative (NGWI).

"Within grapes and grape products, there are chemical classes of natural compounds which are capable of mediating biological responses against a variety of targets," said Dr. John Pezzuto, Dean of the College of Pharmacy at the University of Hawaii Hilo, who moderated the Grape and Health Workshop. "In considering grapes and health, a broader view - that takes into account all of the grape's chemical components including their metabolism, biological potential, biodistribution, absorption and processing - is key to developing a comprehensive and coherent explanation of their role in improving and supporting human health." Pezzuto outlines an innovative approach for achieving this in his contribution to the supplement.
