This is a non-alcoholic,sugar free drink recipe made with black grapes. Ginger and honey combination makes this drink delicious and delectable.

Black grapes aren’t just delicious; this tiny fruit is packed with nutrients. With consumption of grape juice nitric oxide levels in body are increased which helps to decrease the formation of blood clots and platelet aggregation by the RBC in the blood vessels. Grape skin is rich in phenolic compounds that help inhibit a group of enzymes called protein tyrosine kinases which maintains cell regulation and also hinders constriction of blood vessels thereby reducing the blood flow to the heart.Flavonoids are the phytonutrient compounds in grapes that give them a strong purple shade. More vibrant the color a grape, higher is the percentage of flavonoids. Quercitin and resveratrol are the two flavonoid compounds which are believed to decrease the risk of cardiovascular diseases. These compounds help people with heart disease, by decreasing the formation of blood clots in the arteries and platelet clumping. They also prevent oxidation of LDL cholesterol which is the main initiating factor for damaged and hardened arteries. Smoking when coupled with and other lifestyle habits like low fiber intake and diets that are high in trans fats and saturated fats are an major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Compounds present in grapes and grape products offers protection for a healthy heart.

One of the main health benefits of black seedless grapes is their ability to reduce cancer risks because of their polyphenols content. There is little difference in the nutritional value between black grapes with seeds and the seedless varieties.
