CNB Fruity Talks:Grapes (Berries)


The cultivation of grapes dates back more than 5,000 years in Egypt, and they were highly developed by the Greeks and Romans. Today there are nearly 200 cultivated varieties, In fact, they are called the ''nectar of the gods''.
There are different kinds of grapes, in Nigeria, we have our own species of sweet dark brown berries too. I see a lots of them around Port Harcourt and its environs especially at the local markets.

Try all kinds of grapes, rinse them and eat them. Most of the times the grape juice available in the market is not pure. You can buy fresh grapes from the nearest fruit stall and prepare the juice yourself.
See some of its health benefits:



  • Good blood and body builder, it is also a quick source of energy.
  • Grape juice is easily assimilated and It is indicated in cases of constipation, gout, rheumatism, skin and liver disorders.
  • This alkaline fruit helps greatly to decrease the acidity of the uric acid and lends itself further in aiding the elimination of the acid from the system, thus benefiting the kidneys greatly.
  • Studies have shown that grape juice, red wines and raisin tea showed strong antiviral activity against polio virus, herpes simplex virus.
  • Helps reduce platelet clumping and harmful blood clots.
  • This fruit is naturally high in vitamins A, C, and B6, along with folate, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc, copper, and iron, all of which are necessary for human health, especially in people who are active. The high vitamin and mineral content makes grapes a great supplement to a healthy diet, especially if people follow the rule of eating five servings of different colored fruits or vegetables a day, ensuring a diverse intake of vitamins and minerals.
