New benefits to eating grapes

A new study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology has found grapes increased resistance to sunburn and reduced markers of UV damage.

The study’s subjects showed an increase in resistance to sunburn and reduced markers for UV damage.

“We saw a significant photoprotective effect with grape consumption and we were able to identify molecular pathways by which that benefit occurs — through repair of DNA damage and downregulation of proinflammatory pathways,” said Dr. Elmets.

“Grapes may act as an edible sunscreen, offering an additional layer of protection in addition to topical sunscreen products.”
