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.

A medium-sized grapefruit has about 128% of your daily-recommended vitamin C intake (based on a 2,000 calorie diet). By drinking grapefruit juice you can support your immune system and potentially even fight off the common cold and other illnesses that strike when your immune system is defenseless and depleted.
