Health Benefits of Grapefruit

Rio Star Grapefruit. It’s one of the most popular of all the winter fruit in season – and that’s saying something! Competing with satsumas, clementines, minneolas and oranges is no small feat. But these grapefruits, from sunny Texas, have an amazingly sweet flavor. Oh yeah, and they’re unbelievably juicy, too.

And did we mention all the health benefits of grapefruit? There are a lot of them. First of all, grapefruit is an excellent source of vitamin C – eating half of a grapefruit gives you 100% of your daily recommended value of vitamin C. It’s common knowledge that this powerhouse vitamin can help fight colds, plus supports heart health and fights free radicals. That same half of a grapefruit contains 35% of your daily recommended amount of vitamin A, along with smaller amounts of potassium and calcium. Another important nutrient in grapefruit is lycopene, a type of antioxidant that fights free radicals and may work against tumors. Limonoids are a second potentially tumor-fighting nutrient in grapefruit. Tests with limonoids have also been shown to help fight cancers in the skin, lungs, breast, stomach, groin and mouth.

Plus, remember that all of FruitShare’s fruit is 100% organic, so you don’t have to worry about chemicals like pesticides on your fruit. All that is in each grapefruit…is grapefruit! That way, your body can reap the many benefits contained in grapefruits while avoiding the potential issues that can be caused from chemical residues on conventionally-grown fruits.

Eating a half an organic Rio Star grapefruit sure sounds like a healthy – and delicious – way to start off each morning! Order yours today and have it delivered right to your doorstep!
