Golden Health Benefits of A Grapefruit

HASHTAG: #AMCoffee

grapefruit health benefits

For decades, grapefruit health benefits have been linked to different conditions of the body. Be it weight loss or flu prevention, the benefits are there. What is lacking is our regular consumption of this enormously underestimated fruit.

Being an excellent source of Vitamin C, it would be a great idea for any household to offer this available and affordable fruit at home. I remember taking a whole fruit to school and peeling it and enjoying refreshing morsels often when I was growing up. At that time where we lived, it was a luxury to have a grapefruit, and we could afford it only in season. But alternating with apples, oranges, tangerines, cherries – whatever the season was – we did have a lot of fruit as our daily snacks. There were not chips, no cookies (only for birthdays and holidays) and no fast sugars for us.

In this day and age, there are a lot of options for a healthy living. Making an excuse not to have a piece of grapefruit or any good fruit out there is just undermining our health and good well-being as we age. By the way, grapefruit is one of the top anti-aging fruit out there, too!

Scroll down to see our discussion points that are shared for anybody who would like to take well-being sincerely and benefit from anything new we learn together.

    • I love grapefruit and i swear that is why my grandmas lived so long they ate them like every other day!!!

    • GOOD MORNING TO ALL!!! YAY ITS FRIDAY!!! and a three day weekend!!!

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Wendi,
        What are your plans for this weekend?
        What food is planned for it?
        What people are you going to spend it with?

    • good morning i am not a fan of grapefruit or are there different ones that taste better

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Karen,
        I did not know myself that there are DIFFERENT TYPES OF GRAPEFRUIT!
        When I started research and buying from different sources, I found out that some taste so deliciously sweet – these are the ones I go after to eat.
        I get them from Whole Foods sometimes. But I always get them from our local food markets.

        • Laura what is the name or brand i must go get some

          • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

            Karen,
            It is NOT a BRAND!
            Different brands sell different types of grapefruit.
            Sometimes they are very DARK cherry color or very, very bright pink. From my experience they taste meaty and very sweet!
            It is not a brand, every grower has different types of them.
            You need to experiment: get one from a different source.

    • Good morning, I am not a fan of grapefruit but maybe just need a new way to prepare it to eat.

    Grapefruit Reduces Overflow of Different Stress Hormones

    Like oranges, grapefruits are an excellent source of vitamin C. In fact, when comparing whole fruits, grapefruits contain about 26% more of this key micronutrient.

    In addition to being a potent antioxidant, vitamin C may also help combat stress. In one study, German researchers found that, when faced with a stressful situation (e.g., public speaking, taking a test, going for a long trip), healthy young adults who supplemented with vitamin C experienced reduced blood pressure, a decreased stress response, and significant reductions in the hormone cortisol.

    • i think its almost the perfect fruit!!! i need to make this a part of my diet

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Wendi,
        When my hubby started eating grapefruit just ONE Time a Day, his weight dropped visibly!
        He kept his lifestyle, as he does run regularly. But what he did was adding this awesome fruit to his Before Meal regiment.
        And he started with grapefruit slices every morning! This, by the way, does regulate our blood sugar and normalizes insulin sensitivity, which does cause weight gain. (Read about it in discussion AM Coffee #5)

        • i cant believe we let these little things slip away from us and its right there every time we go to the store and i walk right by them and I know they are good for you

          • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

            Wendi,
            That’s why we need reminders.
            Even if we know it all – do we really? – we still need to remind ourselves about many different things and refresh our knowledge!

      • it sounds like i am missing this but cant stand the taste how do you all eat them

        • i sprinkle a little sugar on them my grandmas always did!!

          • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

            Wendi,
            You don’t need any SUGAR ADDED to this Grapefruit Universe!
            Try this experiment –> add just a bit of SALT to a Sweet Variety of Grapefruit!
            What it will do is MAXIMIZE THE SWEETNESS!
            Known trick for Food Formulators!

    • I do need to find a way to prepare grapefruit so I can eat it. Never thought of mixing it in yougart until reading this.

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Bar
        I will look and prep up some great recipes for morning and as a dessert.
        But I usually eat it as is–> pealed and yummy!

    Cortisol vs. Grapefruit

    Cortisol is one of the body’s primary stress hormones, and it can have a significant impact on fat loss and weight gain. In fact, cortisol is associated with increased abdominal fat storage.

    Intra-abdominal fat, or belly fat, is also referred to as visceral fat, which is detrimental to overall health and is associated with a constellation of metabolic abnormalities.

    • for sure a definite than LOL and I LOVE KIWIZ

      • ok kiwi i can do oranges apples and all most other i can

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Just adding grapefruit regularly to our daily diet brings huge benefits.
        I usually add it as a dessert to clear the tastes and enjoy a low-calory food. That’s what Chinese do – serving fruit to clear the palette and satisfy all our tastes at the end of every meal.

        • This sounds like an idea I can actually see myself adding to my daily eating schedule. To cleanse the palette. I like that.

    • I will admit I havent tried grapefruit in a while, Maybe will pick up a few and give them another try.

    Grapefruit Has FIBER!

    In addition to its vitamin C content, grapefruits are also a good source of fiber, which helps slow gastric emptying and increase satiety (i.e., feelings of fullness). What’s more, grapefruits have a very high water content (~91%), and subsequently, they are considered a low-energy-dense food, which help control appetite and regulate body weight. In fact, consuming low-energy-dense foods increases feelings of fullness and reduces calorie intake.

    Here are some COOKING Ideas for you to explore. EASY and AFFORDABLE! I do it every day, one small meal at a time. Possibilities are endless. Use them to allow your body to rejuvenate each night during sleep and feed your body good, fiber-rich foods that are delicious.

    grapefruit health benefits, am coffee , amcoffee

    • You got me at fiber. I don’t eat grapefruit as much as I used to. I need to.

    • I love some of those recipes!! YUM!!! grapefruit will be on my list from here on out

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Oh, please, enjoy the recipes!
        Also, these AM Coffees are a huge benefit to learn something new – for sure!
        But the TRICK IS TO TAKE ACTION After we leave and go on with our days.
        Make a point to go and get those grapefruit from your local market or store!
        Have a week’s supply in your fridge! Then do it again next week!
        That is how we develop beneficial habits – when we have things available for us to eat!

        • i am !!! i always buy oranges but if i can flip my kids to grapefruit we would all benefit more

          • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

            Wendi,
            Do explore DIFFERENT TYPES OF GRAPEFRUIT!
            You need to buy one from a different source, look at their names, and find varieties that are SWEET and Juicy.
            Check your local green market.

      • oh we love beans and i eat lots of greens from the garden it is so good to have fresh foods you can walk out side and pick what you want from the garden

        • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

          You’re a lucky one to have a garden!
          I have herb corner, though!

          • oh Laura it is one of the benefits of having land to be able to do this

            • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

              Karen,
              I spend my summers growing up in the country.
              Doing what my grandparents did alongside with them taught me a ton!
              I love earth and what greatness can come out of it when we put our heart and love labor into it.

    • just a thought that popped in my head. I have never seen grapefruit served in hospitals. I am guessing it can not be eaten with some meds. I do now some people that take cancer drugs are not suppose to eat grapefruit.

    Grapefruit Has Naringin – What Is It?

    Grapefruit has one more trick up its sleeve: Naringin, which is a potent antioxidant that helps protect cells from free radicals.

    Free radicals lead to oxidative stress, which is associated with aging, reduced carbohydrate tolerance, and obesity.

    Naringin may also help the body better utilize carbs instead of storing them as fat, and what’s more, it may also boost fat burning and reduce fat storage.

    grapefruit health benefits, am coffee , amcoffee

    • i need help burning fat these days LOL getting older its hanging around a little to much !!

    • Good info, What about taking a vitiamn with Grapefruit made in it? I Know fresh is better, But, I live in the mountains and travel a hour to get to a major grocery store so getting them fresh is hard for me.

      • Laura, Celebrate Woman Today says:

        Barb,
        Need to make sure that the vitamins are not full of FILLERS!
        Need to research a good brand!

    Grapefruit And Weight Loss – Truth Or Myth?

    Research shows that eating regularly grapefruit is a great benefit for weight loss and maintenance –> see it? MAINTENANCE!

    In one study published in the journal Nutrition & Metabolism, researchers from Vanderbilt University found that when folks added half of a grapefruit (before breakfast, lunch, and dinner) to a reduced-calorie diet, they ended up consuming up to 500 fewer calories per day—without any increase in hunger – which had a tremendous impact on weight loss.

    –> With the addition of grapefruit, the participants’ rate of weight loss increased by over 13% compared to when they were following a reduced-calorie diet without the fruit.

    In another study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, researchers from the Scripps Clinic in California found that overweight folks consuming fresh grapefruit three times daily before meals lost 5 TIMES more weight than the placebo group (i.e., no grapefruit) over the course of 12 weeks.

    —> Not only that, the researchers also found that the addition of grapefruit significantly improved insulin sensitivity, which is intimately tied to carbohydrate metabolism and weight management.
