Antioxidants help protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. Antioxidants help to prevent a variety of chronic illnesses and diseases such as heart disease and different cancers.
Eggplants are rich in anthocyanins. This is what provides the eggplant with its deep rich purple color.
In eggplants anthocyanins are called nasunin and are especially beneficial. Multiple test tube Studies have confirmed its effects against free radicals. There are a few animal and test tube studies that show improved heart function and a reduction in LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels although human studies are still needed.
Eggplant may assist and controlling blood sugar. Eggplants are known to be high in fiber which as you know passes through the digestive system intact.

Eggplant doesn't have any obvious negative properties. I like it as a side dish with meat. A really good combination.
