The Power of Citrus

The Power of Citrus

 

Grapefruit and other citrus fruits can have a major positive impact on your winter diet.

 

Oranges, tangerines, and grapefruits: Turns out they are much more than an easy holiday gift basket. Aside from the obvious benefits of vitamin C and fiber, citrus has been linked to a reduced risk of stroke, an increase in fat loss, and inhibited growth of cancerous tumors. Grapefruit in particular has been shown to prevent asthma, help you stay regular, and promote healthier skin. It contains potassium, lycopene, and choline that can help lower blood pressure and triglyceride levels.

 

Grapefruits are also composed of 91 percent water, and contain a payload of electrolytes that make them an ideal pre-and post-workout snack to hydrate and stay energized.
