Grapefruits are rich in a variety of nutrients and antioxidants. In fact, half a grapefruit can provide almost 70% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C. In addition, the fruit provides a healthy dose of beta carotene, potassium, and folate.
In addition, pink grapefruit contains a carotenoid phytonutrient called lycopene that gives the flesh its distinctive pink color.
Lycopene protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays and has anti-tumor activity. Moreover, the fruit is low in calories but high in water soluble fiber that makes you feel fuller.
