Grapes (especially Grape Skins) contain potent anti-oxidants called OPC – Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins which are a group of colorless flavanols. These may help prevent heart disease. OPCs are most famous for their ability to possibly prevent many forms of cancer. Studies indicate they may stimulate the apoptosis (cell death) of colon cancer cells.
