6 amazing health benefits of drinking grape fruit juice

Grapefruit juice is really easy to make, and it’s also super inexpensive to buy from your local supermarket.

It tastes divine, and quenches your thirst on those blisteringly hot sunny days. And like the grapefruit itself, it also comes with lots of health benefits.

Let’s take a look at six of the best listed below. Enjoy the read…

1) Grapefruit Juice Combats Gum Disease: One of the most surprising benefits of grapefruit juice is its ability to fight gum disease. And if you think you don’t need to worry about gum disease, perhaps you weren’t aware that 47% of American’s have at least mild gum disease.

Symptoms include bleeding gums, swollen gums, loose teeth and pain. It’s nasty, so drink grapefruit juice each day to prevent it.

2) Grapefruit Juice Can Clean Your Liver: Our livers are overworked. They’re basically responsible for keeping everything ticking over. Once the liver gets crowded with too many toxins, it’s no longer able to do its job properly.

This can cause indigestion, skin conditions, infections and so much more.Doing your liver a favour is important, and one ways you can help it out is by drinking grapefruit juice.

Grapefruit juice is a detoxifier that flushes out nasty toxins from your body. It makes you less bloated, less tired, less unclean and so on.

3) Grapefruit Juice Is Good For Cholesterol Problems: Cholesterol is a really bad thing, but the antioxidants found in grapefruit juice can help. Millions and millions of us suffer from some kind of cholesterol issue. While it doesn’t get as much mainstream media attention as cancer or diabetes, too much bad cholesterol can be really dangerous.

4) Grapefruit Juice Can Reduce Stress: Grapefruit juice is heavenly on a sweltering summer’s day. An ice cool glass is so refreshing and cools you down instantly.

But if you don’t think that’s enough to relieve stress, a study in 1995 found that just the smell of citrus fruit can curb stress, anxiety and depression.

5) Grapefruit Juice Boosts Your Immune System: Your immune system is super important. When your immune system is ticking over nicely, you don’t even notice. You’re having too much of a good time!

When your immune system starts to break down, though, you definitely notice it. You become more susceptible to flu’s and infections, and it takes a lot longer to fight them off.

A healthy immune system is the wellspring of life. Look after your immune system, and life becomes a breeze.

6) Grapefruit Juice Can Improve Your Vision: When you were young, your mom probably told you to eat more carrots because they help you to see in the dark. But while carrots certainly do improve your vision, so does grapefruit juice – and it’s a whole lot more refreshing.

The grapefruit is crammed with beta carotene (which is also found in carrots), and it is these that improves your vision.
