Cardiovascular organs at top health!
By consuming just one medium size grapefruit a day it can help lowering the “bad” cholesterol by 15% and triglycerides by 27%, thus it prevents strokes, heart failures and hypertension. The reason for this is the soluble fiber that the grapefruit contains known as pectin. The red varieties have the best impact on cholesterol because they have higher levels of antioxidants.
Provides large amounts of vitamin C
Grapefruits are packed with big loads of vitamin C! Most of the people reach out for the pill when they feel sick. Stop that! Simply just peel the skin, consume it and boom! You have just absorbed 57% of your daily needs of ascorbic acid known as vitamin C.
Being rich in naringenin, the grapefruit is effective with preventing growth of any cancer cell. Naringenin is known to aid in repairing damaged DNA of cancer cells. Antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin A, lycopene and others also work together against any form of cancer in the body.
