Welcome to MuscadineHealthResearch.com
Tracking the clinical studies and health benefits of muscadine grapes.
“Recently, muscadine seed and skin extracts have been shown to inhibit the growth of foodborne pathogens and several types of cancer cells. Compared with other grape species, muscadines are the winner in total phenolics.“ North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services (PDF; linked from this NCDA page), 2010.
“Muscadines and muscadine extracts have been the focus of many cancer research projects in recent years. Typical results from such recent studies find that Muscadines have 6x the resveratrol content of typical red grapes. They also have 40x the antioxidants of red grapes and contain extremely high levels of quercetin (a healthy flavonoid) and more dietary fiber than oat bran or rice.“ BeachCarolina.com, January 7, 2013
By 2004, prior to the 2005 publication of the book “Muscadine Medicine,” there were hundreds of scientific papers already published on the incredible health benefits of muscadine grapes. In the last few years, hundreds more have been added. The studies with the most dramatic findings are listed here, but this site is by no means covering every single study on the ingredients found in muscadine grapes.
