Thinkstock/iStockphoto"Do you take a multivitamin?" It's a common question these days, asked everywhere from doctor's offices to cocktail parties, as more and more people in our society are increasingly concerned with staying healthy and fit.

Whether it's because of lifestyle, an allergy, or a food deficiency, many people turn to the use of a multivitamin to get the nutrients they need, often overlooking potential vitamin sources in their diets.Read More »from Your Multivitamin Diet: Foods that Help You Increase Your Vitamin Intake

Among the growing amount of research that promotes the presence of Concord grapes and grape juice in healthy lifestyles, two recently published scientific papers report that Concord grapes, the purple and red grapes used to make Welch's grape juice, can have positive effects on cardiovascular and cognitive health.
Further research, published by the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, also outlines the positive benefits that grape juice can have on cognitive health. The paper reports on a study conducted by Robert Krikorian, Ph.D., and his colleagues at the University of Cincinnati that found Concord grape juice helps to stop mild memory loss.

According to a press release, Campbell's partnered with Keurig to create "Campbell's Fresh-Brewed Soup K-Cups," basically bringing Campbell's soups down to Top Ramen form. The cups, which provide the "fresh-brewed" broths, come with a separate "noodle and vegetable packet mix." We imagine the directions include brew the broth, dump vegetables and noodles in, cover, and wait for three minutes. We would probably run the K-cup machine one time through to get rid of any coffee residue.
