I recently bought a holistic healing book. I like the way it's laid out...you look up what's wrong with you and it tells you what to use.
So here are 10 things grapefruits can do for you:
1.) Grapefruits are excellent cleanser for the digestive and urinary systems as well as rich in potassium and vitamin C.
2.) A regular consumption of grapefruits will also promote healthy skin. They are frequently used in the treatment of acne.
3.) For those who would like to reduce their weight, grapefruit is good because it reduces appetite
4.) Grapefruits will balances the nervous systems, relieves flu and will help the respiratory system
5. ) Grapefruits could help in treating osteoarthritis.
6.) The juices is also an excellent source of iron.
7.) Grapefruit essential oil is very popular for massaging because of the energizing and uplifting scent.
8.) The rich pink and red colors of grapefruit are due to lycopene. Lycopene appears to have anti-tumor activity.
9.) Both blond and red grapefruit can reduce blood levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol, and red grapefruit lowers triglycerides as well.
10.) Want to reduce your risk of calcium oxalate kidney stones? Drink grapefruit juice. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that when women drank ½ to 1 liter of grapefruit, apple or orange juice daily, their urinary pH value and citric acid excretion increased, significantly dropping their risk of forming calcium oxalate stones.
