why I have been drinking grape juice...

I hate being sick!!  
The stomach bug is the worst of the WORST!!  Last year I had a nasty bout with it, I was sick for at least a week.  I remember the week perfectly, because it was the week we got Sophie (not the best time to get a new puppy, but it all worked out).  My husband and daughter hate puking more than anyone I know!!  One day Ashley told me about a blog post she read about how grape juice prevents you from getting the stomach bug, and she immediately jumped on the grape juice bandwagon.  Mike wasn't too far behind, I on the other hand am not really a fan of the taste of grape juice (it is okay in the little cup for church for communion, but a giant glass???).   I was a little skeptical, but the more I Google'd it, the more I found about it.

A few blog posts about it:

Some facts about grape juice:
Grapes and grape juice supply many important nutrients, such as vitamin C and potassium and might also have certain health protective benefits. Grape juice might reduce your risk of developing blood clots, help reduce your LDL cholesterol level, prevent damage to the blood vessels around your heart and help maintain a healthy blood pressure. The antioxidants in grapes and grape juice might also help reduce your risk of heart disease and atherosclerosis. 

The most effective way to prevent a stomach virus is to wash your hands regularly. Scrub your hands with soap and water after using the restroom or changing a diaper, before eating, after spending time outside and after coming into contact with surfaces that might harbor germs, such as door handles.  

If someone in your family has a stomach virus, don't share towels, utensils or dishes. This might help prevent the spread of the germs that cause the virus. Grape juice is a healthy sources of vitamin C. The vitamin C that grape juice contains will help boost your immune system. 

Well, over the past few weeks the stomach bug has been going around my office.  It has hit everyone around me.  So I am not sure if drinking grape juice prevents the stomach bug or not, but I am not taking any chances...I am drinking my grape juice EVERY day.  I drink it with dinner, and it isn't so bad (I think I am acquiring a taste for it). So far I have been stomach bug free~and I am pretty HAPPY about that!!

What do you think?

Enjoy Today!!

Sorry you got so sick before. I have a friend that does grape juice with and for her family too. I just started doing a daily dose. I hope it works. Thanks for all of the help and links.
