Call Grapes Your Medicine

There has been great news about grapes. Did you know that this fruit can fight colds, whiten your teeth and even smooth out your wrinkles?

For colds:
Grape juice is the best. Or try a smoothie: Blend 1/2 cup each grape juice, low-fat vanilla, yogurt, strawberries and banana.

For smoothing wrinkles:
Smooth a little grapeseed oil (sold at health stores) onto a crease-prone area before going to bed. This is rich in anti-oxidants and essential fatty acids that can help keep skin younger looking.

As Teeth Whitener:
The malic acid in grapes naturally breaks down stains and discolorations on teeth. Try snacking on grapes that are just ripe, because the acid declines as the fruit ripens.
