Grapefruit is known for its high vitamin C content, which has antioxidant properties that protect cells from bacteria and viruses. Grapefruit contains other vitamins and minerals that may support the immune system. Particularly vitamin A has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and protect against several types of infection. In smaller amounts, grapefruit contains B vitamins, zinc, copper and iron, which all play unique roles in immune system functioning. They also benefit the health of your skin, which is the first line of defense against infections. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24766384, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7811869, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11115789

Antioxidants protect all the kinds of cells in your body from molecules called free radicals. Too much free radicals can cause cellular damage, which may lead to various diseases. Grapefruit contains a few powerful antioxidants that have been associated with defending the body from such as vitamin C, Beta-carotene, Lycopene, and flavanones. Beta-carotene is converted into vitamin A and is thought to to help reduce the risk of chronic conditions. Lycopene is believed by researchers to prevent the development of certain types of cancer. May also help slow the growth of tumors and decrease the side effects of common cancer treatments. Flavanones have anti-inflammatory properties which have been shown to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of heart disease. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3942711/, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20394143, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22574825

In half of a medium-sized grapefruit there are 2 grams of fiber. Several studies have shown that fiber rich fruits are beneficial in inducing feelings of fullness. The reason being fiber slows the rate at which your stomach empties, increasing digestion time. Grapefruit, therefore, may help you eat fewer calories throughout the day by promoting fullness. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21115081

Grapefruit’s fiber content, which helps promote fullness and reduce calorie intake may aid in weight loss. Also, grapefruit contains very few calories but a whole lot of water, which is another characteristic known to help with weight loss. One study of 91 obese people found that those who ate half a grapefruit before meals lost significantly more weight than those who didn’t. Another study found that participants who ate grapefruit daily with their meals experienced a significant reduction in waist size. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15797686, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16579728, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21288350

Grapefruit may help prevent blood sugar regulating hormone resistance, which can lead to diabetes. Blood sugar-regulating hormone is an important hormone that regulates many processes in your body. Blood sugar regulating hormone is involved in many aspects of metabolism, but it’s most known for its control of blood sugar levels. Grapefruit may help control blood sugar regulating hormone. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1204764/, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16579728, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19207533

Research has shown that grapefruit may improve heart health by reducing risk factors for heart disease, such as high blood pressure and cholesterol. In one study, participants ate grapefruit three times daily over a six-week period. The results showed significant reductions in participants blood pressure over the course of the study and they showed improvements in total cholesterol and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels. Research has shown that this might be due to grapefruit being high in potassium, a mineral that plays a role in many aspects of hearth health. Diets that include adequate potassium intake have been linked with reducing the risk high blood pressure and lower the risk of death from heart disease. The fiber found in grapefruit may also play a role in heart health. High fiber intake is associated with lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Thus, reducing the risk of developing heart disease or having a stroke. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22304836, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23674806, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18724413, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19335713
