London:  Raisins can help power the body when exercising just as well as expensive sports nutrient bars, a study suggests. The dried grapes give athletes all they need during vigorous exercise, a daily reported quoting a study by researchers at the University of California-Davis.

The research team studied people running three miles, giving those raisins, supplement bars or simply water.

Runners who ate raisins or bars ran the distance a minute faster on average than those who had only water. The results are published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.
