Eating grapes may improve joint flexibility

crop1_240x240_15may14A new research has revealed that regular consumption of grapes can benefit the functions of joints and relieve the pain caused due to symptomatic osteoarthritis of the knee.

Shanil Juma, Ph.D., said that the findings provide promising data that links grape consumption to two very important outcomes for those living with knee osteoarthritis: reduced pain and improvements in joint flexibility.

However, a better understanding is required to recognize the results of the serum’s biomarkers and even the age and gender differences needed to be observed carefully.

The research was presented at the Experimental Biology conference in San Diego, California.
