Grapefruit is known as a superfruit due to its related health benefits.
It contains more water than most fruits, thus the ability to keep one hydrated. The grapefruit is also high in vitamin A and C, which in turn boosts your immune system. Vitamin C is also known to speed up building up of scar tissue and wound healing.
It also helps in one's weight loss and lowering of bad cholesterol, that builds up in arteries, leading to higher risk of stroke and heart attack. Not only so, the grapefruit can also help to reduce hypertension and blood sugar. However, do seek professional advice if you are on any medications.
It is best served as part of your salads with some walnuts, and with fish or chicken.
