Benefits of Grapefruits

The many benefits of grapefruits include:
  • High in vitamin C which boosts the immune system and helps fight colds and flu.
  • When eaten whole the fruit is an excellent source of the soluble fiber pectin which is good for the cardiovascular system, reducing high cholesterol.
  • Good for allergies.
  • Helps prevent and heal infections of the throat and mouth.
  • The white pith is rich in bioflavonoids - these are great for the skin, and help reduce cellulite, and fluid retention.
  • The grapefruit seeds contain a natural antibiotic and antiseptic - another reason to eat or juice them whole. Grapefruit seed extract (GSE) is used to fight colds, sore throats, parasites, and yeast infections and to relieve indigestion.
  • Pink and red varities are high in lycopene which appears to significantly lower the risk of prostate cancer.
  • Contains many health promoting, anti-cancer plant chemicals including phenolic acid, limonoids, terpenes, and monoterpenes.
