Grape is not a simple fruit, it has a magical power to boost up numerous health benefits and also it is a remedy for many diseases - it reduces knee pain, works on acne and dry skin and also helps boost the immune system.

To add the value of Grapes, recent studies shows that eating grapes daily helps improve eyesight.

The paper of study presented at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology conference in Orlando suggest that regular grape consumption plays a role in improving eye health by protecting the retina from deterioration.

The lead author Abigail Hackam from the University of Miami, Florida said, "In mice, the grape-enriched diet provided substantial protection of retinal function which is very exciting."

Photoreceptors is a vision process in which retina, the part of the eye that contains the cells that respond to light. The experiment done in mice proved that whether a diet supplemented with grapes could protect the photoreceptors in mice with retinal degeneration.

Experiment done in such a way, were mice either fed a grape-supplemented diet corresponding to three servings of grapes per day for humans or one of two control diets. The results showed that retinal function was significantly protected in the mice consuming the grape-enriched diet.

"Grapes promote eye health from signaling changes at the cellular level to directly countering oxidative stress" said an excited Abigail Hackam, the author. Grape consumption also protects retinal function in an oxidative stress model of degeneration, he added.

Moreover, analysis revealed that the grape diet resulted in lower levels of inflammatory proteins and higher amounts of protective proteins in the retinas.
