Nutritional Benefits: 

Fresh, tangy vitamins

Earthbound Farm Organic Grapefruit is an excellent source of vitamins C and A. Grapefruit is also a good source of an antioxidant called lycopene. As part of a healthy diet, lycopene may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases.

Grapefruit also provides pectin — a soluble fiber that, as part of a healthy, low-fat diet, may help lower cholesterol levels.

This citrus fruit is bursting with vitamin C, which promotes wound healing, supports the immune system, and helps keep skin healthy. Vitamin C also helps the body absorb iron from plant-based sources; try making a grapefruit vinaigrette and drizzling it over sautéed spinach, or simply throw some grapefruit wedges into a raw spinach salad to maximize your nutrient intake.
