Add this citrus fruit to your daily routine.
By Reina Berger
Out of all the fresh produce in the grocery store, grapefruits are too often overlooked, thanks to their reputation for being somewhat bitter tasting. However, the health benefits in this citrus fruit far outweigh the cons, making grapefruit juice an excellent addition to a healthy diet. Just be sure to juice the fruit yourself to get all the vitamins and nutrients and none of the unhealthy sugars that come from the store-bought variety.

Did you know that grapefruits are made up almost entirely of water? If you’re feeling dehydrated, a glass of grapefruit juice is a great choice. Like watermelon or cucumbers, this fruit is particularly delicious on a hot summer day when you lose a lot of water from sweating outside.
