3 Reasons To Eat Grapefruit
Published: 2/25/2014

Pink or white, with seeds or seedless, grapefruit is delicious, tart and refreshing. Eating it regularly is a great way to get your vitamin C in just a few calories: an average-size grapefruit has about 70 calories total. Plus this citrus fruit offers other benefits. Research suggests it may:

  • Protect against cancers of the prostate, lung and colon
  • Support immune function
  • Lower LDL ("bad") cholesterol

When choosing, look for a thick skin and heavy weight - both help to insure a juicier fruit. Enjoy grapefruit sectioned and tossed in a salad, on its own (with or without a sprinkle of sugar) or as freshly squeezed juice.
