Grapefruits reach their peak during the coldest months of the year which is good because that’s when you’re most likely to need them the most. Grapefruits are extremely high in vitamin C, half of a grapefruit provides about 78 percent of your recommended daily intake. Besides strengthening your immune system they also contribute to weight lose because their high fiber and water content keep you full and hydrated longer. When you can, opt for pink or red grapefruits because they contain the antioxidant lycopene which has properties that help fight cancer causing free radicals. Eat the grapefruits freshly peeled on their own or mix into a salad.
