GrapeFruit Benefits

We know eating fruits is good for our health. But fruits can be so expensive especially when you buy them off season. When I was a kid we eat a lot of grape fruit. My great-grandparents which was our neighbor had grape fruit that grew on their yard which also part of our yard. So we ate grape fruit almost everyday. Our grape fruit back in the Philippines is big. So when I got here in the US 5 yrs ago I keep looking for it every time we went to the supermarket. But I couldn't find any until 2yrs ago when I finally asked my husband about it. He told me that we have it here too. So he showed it to me and I was surprised to see that it wasn't big as I expected. We bought a bag and tried one when we got home. And yes he was right. The taste is a little bit bitter unlike my grandparents which was very sweet. But I was happy to eat grape fruit again after couple years of not having it. Now I eat grape fruit like there's no tomorrow :)

Anyway, when I tried to Google the health benefits of grape fruit, I was surprised to find out that it has a lot of health benefits that comes with the fruit by eating naturally. I learned that it can help in weight loss, since it is low in sodium, high in fat burning enzymes.Also, Grapefruit is very helpful in removing or dissolving inorganic calcium which may have formed in the cartilage of the joints.
