OK, they can be a bit tart, but grapefruits are a terrific source of vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant.

The more antioxidants you eat, the better, as these help improve your immune system so you can fight infections and protect the body from free radicals. Grapefruits also have a flavonoid important for diabetics, narigenin. This flavonoid increases the body’s sensitivity to insulin and can help your maintain a healthy weight.

Choose fresh, organic ruby red grapefruit and enjoy a healthy fruit that has a GI of only 25 per half a grapefruit.
