Astounding healing properties of the pink grapefruit

Include pink grapefruits in your diet, you will be happy you did. 

You can add them in your favorite fruit salad, squeeze them for a fresh juice, or just eat one by itself. I love adding 1 tbsp of raw honey on top of a sliced grapefruit. It dilutes its bitterness and taste so much better.

The flesh of a grapefruit varies in colors of red, pink and white. According to Medicinal Food News, the pink variety of grapefruit contains a much higher concentration of vitamins and minerals than the others.

At a glance, here are the astounding healing properties of the pink grapefruit:

  • ✒ Cancer fighter:

  • ✒ Lowers cholesterol

  1. I have take grape fruit and I think I works really good. My skin look clear. Also is a good snack. Sometimes I eated after my applecider vinegar. Also is good to slim you down. I notice the fat on my middle side is almost no longer there.
    I always work out almost 3 to 4 times a week. Grape fruit is really good and you will see the differences. Of course first look at your medications and be sure you can use.

    Thanks .
