The Healing Power of Grapefruit!
the "White Pith" of the grapefruit is very valuable, bio available Vitamin C (bioflavinoids) and a fantastic anti-cancer nutrient.
Our Adrenals need Vitamin C more than any other organ of the body. Usable Vitamin C such as Citrus is almost a daily must to get into our diets.
Acidity: Grapefruit has a sub-acid taste, however its juice actually has an alkaline reaction after digestion. This applies as well, with Lemons and Limes, Plumellos.
Diabetics can eat Grapefruit!
Grapefruit can help increase the body's sensitivity to blood glucose. While this seems bad, it is actually quite the opposite. A diabetic has increased resistance to blood glucose and therefore contracts the disease. If the body increases their sensitivity to blood glucose, they can also stave off some of the symptoms or effects of diabetes. This is one of the greatest grapefruit benefits that you will find from a fruit that has a whole lot of grapefruit benefits.
Breast cancer: Bioflavonoids found in grapefruit was discovered to even halt cancer cells from spreading in breast cancer patients, by ridding the body of excess estrogen.
The fibers from Grapefruits can benefit good colon health, especially the pith from the Grapefruits. So this is why I eat, almost daily, one Grapefruit before I do anything. Red Ruby are my favorite.
Pregnant woman: The bioflavonoids and vitamin C help to reduce water retention and swelling of the legs during pregnancy. Another reason why to juice the Grapefruits, because the bio-availability from the Pith is magnificent when juiced along with the Grapefruit.
Weight-loss: This fruit has a fat-burning enzyme and can help to absorb and reduce the starch and sugar in the body. It is widely consumed by people who are trying to lose weight.
