Grape Juice and Red Wine, Drink Up!

Antioxidants are all the rage right now due to their high potential for warding off cancer. So what's the best way for you to get them?

New reports from BBC News claims that a team of scientists from Glasgow University have identified purple grape, cranberry and apple juice as those that contain the most antioxidants to fight disease such as Alzheimer's, cancer and heart disease. Purple grape juice made from Concord grapes was found to have the best range of polyphenols (antioxidants). These antioxidants were equal to those found in...wait for it... Beaujolais red wine! When used in moderation, Beaujolais was also found to be an effective deterrent to free radical buildup in the body. Merci Beaucoup!

To get the most out of these free radical fighting antioxidants, scientists suggest drinking a variety of the juices (and wine, if you're of age) mentioned.

Nope geeksugar - not so much. It is all about color. These antioxidants are higher in red grape skin. Although, research is being done on white wine to figure out if it has anything to offer in the antioxidant category - since we all already know it is quite tasty.
