Grapes contain beta carotene, B complex, vitamin C, as well as boron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, pectin, malic, citric and oxalic acids. Grapes act as a diuretic (reduce water retention). Interestingly, grape seeds are also of nutritional benefit.
Grapes (Vitis vinifera), members of the Vitaceae (Grape) Family, are one of the planet's earliest cultivated foods. The genus name, vitis refers to "vine" and the species name, vinifera means, "wine bearing." Believed to originate in Asia, there are as many as 8,000 grape varieties, though about fifty are used in commerce.
