|Think Purple for American Heart Month
February is American Heart Month and from hearts to dresses it’s all about red. But, do you know what goes great with this crimson color? Purple!
Purple is a cue that fruits and veggies have natural plant nutrients called polyphenols that can help promote heart health. And, one delicious way to add the power of purple to your plate is with the mighty Concord grape.
While this “super” fruit can be hard to find fresh, you can enjoy its taste and heart-health benefits with 100% grape juice. Each glass is made by squeezing whole Concord grapes — skins, seeds and all — and 20 years of research says it helps support a healthy heart. In fact, 100% grape juice delivers many of the same polyphenols and heart-health benefits as red wine, with no added sugar.
