Improves digestion & metabolism

Grapefruit, because of its water and fiber content, helps to prevent constipation and promote a healthy digestive tract.  according to medical news today.

As it turns out, grapefruits actually have a high level of naringenin, an antioxidant that helps stabilize the metabolism. This means you’re much less likely to have a blood sugar crash later, according to HealthAmbition.
