Purple Power Grape Juice

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Purple foods are one of the hottest food trends for 2017, and with good reason—they are full of nutrients and powerful antioxidants and high in anti-aging and anti-disease compounds.

Purple fruits and vegetables have a pigment that contains flavonoids, including resveratrol, which keeps blood pressure in control and boosts immunity from certain cancers. These purple foods also improve heart health, vision and brain health. Studies demonstrate that people who eat purple and blue fruits and vegetables have reduced risk for high blood pressure and are also less likely to be overweight.
