Grapes to Treat Colon Cancer

Grapes are a rich source of many bioactive compounds. Red grapes contain resveratrol, an antioxidant which has anti-cancer properties. Studies have shown that resveratrol can suppress proliferation and induced apoptosis by p53 activation against colon cancer cells. However, resveratrol can kill colon cancer cells only at higher concentrations. Grape seed extract, which is commonly used as a dietary supplement is rich in proanthocyanidins. Studies have shown that grape seed extract has anti-colon cancer properties in both in vitro and in vivo models.
