In researching heart healthy foods in an effort to be proactive about my husband’s health history I was surprised to find that grape juice is a heart healthy food with a lot of great benefits to your heart.
Each 4-ounce glass counts as 1 serving (1/2 cup) of fruit – with no added sugar. And, more than a decade’s worth of research suggests that thanks to the Concord grape, Welch’s 100% Grape Juice can help support a healthy heart.
There is a gap between knowing the heart-health benefits of common foods and actually putting them into the shopping cart. 2/3 of Americans recognize that red wine, salmon, oatmeal or olive oil are heart-healthy foods. However, a fraction of these same consumers buy these foods on a monthly basis.
You may have read my post on preventing the stomach flu with grape juice and if not I suggest you read up on it 🙂 Turns out there are more than just a few great benefits to drinking grape juice!
What’s your heart health history? Does your family carry a history of heart problems as my husband’s does? Are you proactive about taking care of your heart and if so what steps do you take to ensure your heart is healthy?
