Project Description

(Vitis vinifera)

The grape vines around Greece and France are splendid. They have been used as a food and medicine since thousands of years BC.
The vine leaves are used in cooking for Greeks famous dolmades stuffed with rice, eggs, herbs and lemon.
🍇Vine leaves are often preserved in salt so they can be enjoyed the whole year.
The grape seeds are very medicinal as a. antioxidant, vasoprotective and venotonic so great for healing anything vascular, eg. thread veins, varicose veins, spider veins and hemorrhoids.
The astringent properties of grape seeds will help tonify veins and strengthen poor circulation.
Grape seeds are also collagen healing and for strengthening connective tissues.
We use this in Naturopathic clinic in tablet form for the most therapeutic results.
Of course there is the wine too!🍷And if you must… then red wine is healthier for you than white. Some of the better wines are high in Resveratrol which is a great antioxidant for the body. Everything in moderation of course.
N.B Resveratrol is actually higher in grapes that are grown in harsher climates such as very hot (like here in Greece) or cooler like New Zealand. The plan naturally produces this beneficial photochemical in response to natural stress.
