Greapfruit Nutrition Concerns?

Grapefruit can make a phenomenal bedtime snack when your stomach is rumbling just enough to keep you awake but not so much that you want to eat a full meal. Because it’s so light, refreshing and low in calories, a half grapefruit can keep your hunger at bay until morning comes without ruining any healthy diet plan.

Grapefruit juice is used for high cholesterol, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), cancer, a skin disease called psoriasis, and for weight loss and obesity. Grapefruit seed extract is taken by mouth for bacterial, viral, and fungal infections including yeast infections.

Benefits

  • Limonoids in Grapefruit Promote Optimal Health.
  • Grapefruit Juice May Prevent Kidney Stones.
  • The powerful nutrient combination of fiber, potassium, lycopene, vitamin C and choline in grapefruit all help to maintain a healthy heart.
