Vitis vinifera is a woody climber in the grape family (Vitaceae) and is native to Europe and Asia. Grapes are nourishing and rich in antioxidants and the seed oil is a source of essential fatty acids and vitamin E.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.
