GRAPEFRUIT Will Help To Weight Loss
Grapefruit are the largest citrus fruit, with white, pink or ruby flesh to choose from. Their bitterness is due to liminoid, a phytochemical. You should also avoid unripe grapefruit. To dull the bitter taste, add honey on top or mix with strawberry juice. Liminoids promote the formation of a detoxifying enzyme, glutathione-Stransferase, that inhibits tumour formation, especially in cases of oral, pancreatic, colon or stomach cancer.
Grapefruit also contains lycopene which provides similar anti-tumour and antioxidant activity to fight against atherosclerosis, cataracts, arthritis and other diseases caused by oxidative stress. Lycopene provides the colour pigment of fruits. Grapefruit also contain salicylic acid, which dissolves inorganic calcium, a cause of arthritis. Grapefruit reduces body acidity and protects against kidney stone development. Grapefruit provide vitamin C (38mg), and their biotin content (3mcg) promotes fat reduction in combination with a low calorie count and their supply of vitamin B5 (0.28mg). Get used to the grapefruit to reduce body weight, acidity and to protect against tumours. Grapefruit are a great fruit!
