Researchers from the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine have found that natural compounds in grapes may help protect the eyes against disease.
The study — which was funded by the California Table Grape Commission and recently published in the journal Nutrition — reportedly looked at whether a diet supplemented with grapes would help protect the photoreceptors of the retina from degeneration induced by acute oxidative stress. Using a laboratory model, the researchers were able to show both retinal structure and function were preserved in mice eating a grape-enriched diet.
