This tart citric fruit is loved by some, and hated by others. While its extreme juicy flavor can be overbearing on its own, people have added sugar to take away from its acidic taste. It has high water content, is low in calories and high in fiber.

Benefits of Grapefruit:

+ Rich in Vitamin A & C which offer natural antioxidants
+ Improves metabolism
+ Decreases feeling of hunger
+ High potassium levels help control heart rate and blood pressure
+ Contains lycopene which protects against UV rays
+ Decreases toxic substances in the colon, instances of constipation and indigestion
+ Helps the body battle diabetes, insomnia and urinary disorders
