Grapefruits, delicious and refreshing but more than that they are composed of 88% water and are low in calories. Half of one contains enough vitamin C to cover 75% of the recommended daily dose for an adult and 100% for children! It’s also rich in vitamins A, B, E, K, minerals like potassium and calcium, and fibers. The more red it is the better, because it contains more antioxydants (flavonoids and carotenoids) which help prevent cancer and cardiovascular diseases. By reinforcing the immune system, it helps preventing colds and other infections. Moreover, most people don’t know that a grapefruit can save the day in case of a hangover!
