- Enjoy Benefits from the Antioxidant Lycopene in Pink Grapefruits
The rich pink color of grapefruit is due to lycopene, a carotenoid phytonutrient. (Note: Only the pink grapefruit contains Lycopene. White grapefruit does not provide this carotenoid.) Lycopene appears to have anti-tumor properties. Among the common dietary carotenoids, lycopene has the highest capacity to help fight the free radicals, which are compounds that can damage cells.
- Limonoids in Grapefruit Promote Optimal Health
Phytonutrients in grapefruit called limonoids inhibit tumor formation by promoting the formation of glutathione-S-transferase, a detoxifying enzyme. This enzyme sparks a reaction in the liver that helps to make toxic compounds more water soluble for excretion from the body. The pulp of citrus fruits like grapefruit contains glucarates, compounds that may help prevent breast cancer.
