Anti-Fungal, Anti Viral, Anti Bacterial… NEED I SAY MORE?!?!

I sometimes live on grapes and many times its the only thing I seem to want to eat. While I don’t dedicate a specific amount of time or set a routine to anything food related… I do sometimes intuitively finding my body singling out a specific fruit. GRAPES OFTEN FIND THEIR WAY TO THE TOP OF MY LIST โค

Grapes are extremely rich in iron and are Natures finest natural tonic in the world. Tonic?!? Whats that mean?

Because of their molecular properties, Grapes have an important and vital relationship to the protein base of the protoplasm of the cell…. say what?!?

Simply put… Our cells sometimes store waste

This happens since our bodies need to take care of the most important and vital pressing bodily function first in order to keep us running smoothly and a few tiny toxins isn’t enough to halt the whole system

Eventually these build ups are what leads to Disease and other health issues. When we don’t recognize the signs, the body continues to try to get our attention, eventually draining our energy or becoming visibly sick, making it impossible to ignore

Grapes due to their molecular make up can easily access and clean toxins from our cells, buildups and poor/unhealthy cells which may have been damaged or replicated by our body

Because of this ability, Grapes stand alone among the foods of nature as a true builder and repairer! The Greeks and Romans were on to something!!

And lets not forget to talk about RESVERATROL, a compound found in Grapes with LONG LENGTHY LIST OF BENEFITS!!!

Individuals with painful GOUT!! Look no further!! This natural acidity of Grapes also works by removing inorganic deposits and buildups in our joints due! Hallelujah!!!

This also includes build ups in the Kidneys and Gallbladder as well!!! Making them a great natural Diuretic for those struggling with Kidney Health or Fluid Retention!

Want to know why Nature is so amazing? It Mirrors our own bodies… As above, So Below, or should I say Beside?!?

Having Problems breathing lately?!?!

Looking at Grapes and how they grow, we may find it almost resembles our LUNGS… Each Grape like a pocket of bronchioles…

Well its no surprise that Grapes have a significant effect on the lungs and aiding in removing mucus and build up of toxins in our Bronchiole Tubes

HEART HEALTH?! Atherosclerosis is a type of heart disease resulting in the buildup in artery walls, especially those of the heart and brain of LDL or best known as…. cholesterol This is what can cause and often leads to a heart attack or stroke

The polyphenolsย in grapes act as a VASODILATOR, which relaxes the blood vessels

This in combination with grapes natural acids can help to protect from heart disease by breaking down build ups and cleaning the artery walls all while relaxing the blood vessels allowing the waste to be transported through the system!!! Successfully helping to reverse the process of atherosclerosis

Another amazing component are the Proanthocyanidins, found in grape seeds These work as powerful antioxidants that can block the action of free radicals and reduce oxidative stress

They also contain QUERCETIN which is well known for its amazing anti-inflammatory effects! Didย you know thats its a major component in St. Johns Wort and other Pain Killers!?! So lets skip those chemicals and go straight to the source!!!

Want to know the most amazing thing about Grapes?!?!

Grapes purify the blood from all sorts of ailments and aid in reversing disease Making them an EXCELLENT AND SUCCESSFUL CANCER FIGHTER!!!

The Grape Cure has since been studied and proved to be extremely beneficial to individuals battling serious health concerns

With all the health benefits mentioned above its no wonder it’s currently prescribed for those with Cancer, Diseases of the Liver, Kidney Disease or Filtration Issues, Early Stages of Tuberculosis, Lung Problems such as asthma, allergies or COPD, Gout, Anemia and the list goes on

How is it possible?!?! Well lets check what these amazing things are made of?!

B1 – THIAMINE – helps prevent complications in the nervous system, brain, muscles, heart, stomach, and intestines by aiding in regulating the flow of electrolytes into and out of muscle and nerve cells

B2 – RIBOFLAVIN – crucial for breaking down food components, absorbing other nutrients, and maintaining tissues

B3 – NIACIN -maintaining proper blood circulation,ย  boosting memory power, aids the digestive tract in absorbing minerals, regulates Cholesterol

Nature never intended fruit to not bare seeds and be able to reproduce…. Meaning anything not seeded is tampered with by human hands and we have all seen how that goes ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

SAY NO to SEEDLESS โœ‹โœ‹โœ‹
