Mentioned in medical literature as early as the 1700's, peppermint is regarded as a stimulant which can restore proper function to the stomach and can promote digestion by stimulating the production of bile in the liver, helping breakdown fats. Thought to reduce muscle spasms, it has been used as a remedy for irritable bowel syndrome and other related ailments. Its bacterial and antiviral qualities make it a great infection fighter, which lends itself well to the clearing of congestion in the nose, sinuses, and bronchial passages and more generally as a common cold and flu remedy.
As a digestive aid, peppermint seems to reduce bloating, soothe abdominal pain and helps to stop vomiting. It also seems to reduce nausea and morning sickness. Peppermint is used to promote relief from muscular tension and has been known to offer relief from stress and migraine headaches.

It has been determined that biologically active flavonoids: a natural substance found in red grapes (their juice, pulp, skin, seed, and stems) contain some of the most powerful antioxidants yet discovered, and have been hailed to be up to seven times more potent than those found in the vitamins C, E and beta-carotene. Flavonoids are important for neutralizing harmful free radicals, which may be a root cause of many chronic and degenerative diseases such as certain itself. The assumption is that red grapes tend to reduce blood platelet stickiness, allowing blood to flow more smoothly through the vessels, thereby reducing risk of heart attack and stroke.
