Vitis vinifera (Common Grape Vine) is a species of Vitis, native to the Mediterranean region, central Europe, and southwestern Asia, from Morocco and Portugal north to southern Germany and east to northern Iran.
Grapes grow wild on vines or are cultivated. They are believed to be native to northwest Asia although they have been grown throughout Europe and the United States for centuries.
The seeds, skin, leaves, stems, and grape itself are used in herbal remedies. At times in the past, diets consisting solely of grapes have been touted as an alternative means of treating cancer.
Some chemicals found in grape extract (called proanthocyanidins) and in grape skins (called resveratrol) are currently being studied for possible uses in the prevention and treatment of cancer and other illnesses.
