The Basics of Raisin Water

All "hard" science aside, raisin water has been used for decades by those who are conscious of their health. Normally, this water is taken for four consecutive days out of the month. It is believed that both digestion and energy levels are positively affected. Most medical professionals agree that if taken in the morning before the day begins, raisin water offers additional benefits such as lowering levels of triglycerides (a type of cholesterol) and alleviating constipation. Much of this has to do with the vitamin and mineral content found within the raisins themselves. It should also be noted that raisins contain a large amount of substances known as flavonoids. These are powerful antioxidants which help to prevent the emergence of free radicals within the body. This water is also able to help the production of gastric juices. These are directly involved with our normal digestive processes. Perhaps this is why raisins were featured so prominently in the painting of Bacchus?
