Grapefruits are Healthy

In 1929 on a farm in South Texas the Ruby Red grapefruit was discovered. The color of these grapefruits is a natural mutation. Early grapefruit varieties were sour and tart but the red grapefruit is the exact opposite sweet and tangy. While the white and pink grapefruit varieties have been around longer the Ruby red grapefruit has become a popular favorite world wide.

All grapefruits are good for you the Ruby red grapefruits are also better for you than the original grapefruits. What a great thing to have both taste and health to go hand in hand. Like most citrus vitamin C is found in all varieties of grapefruits. Vitamin C works as a powerful antioxidant battling harmful free radicals. Without vitamin C these free radicals would do damage to healthy cells.

Grapefruits also contain flavonoids. Flavonoids are antioxidants with anti inflammatory properties. Those who suffer from painful chronic conditions like arthritis will benefit from grapefruits. In addition, grapefruits are a great source of salicylic acid that works to alleviate the painful symptoms associated with arthritis.

Fiber can be found in both white grapefruit as well as the Ruby Red variety. The fiber can help promote healthy bowel movements and improves the health of the digestive system. However, while white grapefruits offer vitamin A the ruby red variety offers 28 times more Vitamin A helps treat common skin conditions like acne or rashes.
