The Glorious Grapefruit!
Day 24 of the 30 Day Raw Vegan Fruit Project

Raw Vegan Fruit Project:

The fruit for Day 24 is the GRAPEFRUIT!

-The world's largest producers of this fruit are the US, Mexico, and China!

-Grape-fruit is believed to have been an accidental hybrid of the pomelo and orange.

Grape-fruit is a good source of:

Vitamins A, C, B-complex

Fiber

Potassium

Calcium

Folate


-Grape-fruit is a great source of antioxidants that may help prevent heart disease and certain cancers.

-Grape-fruit contains compounds that have been shown to help prevent cancer.

-Grape-fruit have an alkalizing effect on our bodies, thus can help regulate pH.

-Grape-fruit contain pectin, a soluble fiber shown to help lower blood cholesterol.

-One grape-fruit contains 12 grams of fiber! About 6 grams are insoluble, which is great for preventing constipation and colon cancer, and the other 6 grams are soluble--shown to help lower cholesterol (the "pectin" thing from above). Peel and eat, rather than cutting the fruit in half then eating each little section with a spoon if you want all that fabulous fiber!

-Grapefruit has also been shown to help reduce the pain and inflammation associated with inflammatory conditions--gout, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and asthma.

-Grapefruit helps our livers detoxify our bodies! Yep, grapefruit increases the activity of certain enzymes which our boost our liver's ability to remove toxins.

-Grapefruit trees can produce fruit for up to 40 years!
