Grapefruit is a subtropical citrus tree known for its relatively high acid / semi-sweet / slightly bitter fruit. It is a citrus hybrid native to Barbados, resulting from the accidental crossing of sweet orange and pomelo. When found, it was called the "forbidden fruit."
Grapefruit and grapefruit juice have been found to interact with many drugs and can cause adverse direct and / or side effects. Drinking grapefruit juice may change the strength of some medications, increasing the risk of overdose. The juice of these fruits, in some cases, can also reduce the effectiveness of the medication. If you are taking any medications, it is worth consulting your doctor to see if grapefruit is a healthy and appropriate choice for you.
Although grapefruits are low in calories, they are high in nutrients. They are a good source of vitamin A, which is important in maintaining the immune system and healthy eyes and skin. It is also rich in folates, which are very important for the development of the baby during pregnancy. Vitamin C helps support the immune system in a variety of ways, and can also help fight the formation of free radicals that experts believe cause cancer. The grapefruit glycemic index is low. This means that it provides nutrients but does not have a significant negative effect on human blood sugar. The combination of fiber, potassium, lycopene, vitamin C and choline in grapefruit can help improve heart function. According to a study by the American Heart Association (AHA), eating more flavonoids may reduce the risk of stroke in women. Flavonoids are compounds found in citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruits.
