7. Your Cholesterol Levels Should Reduce
Heart health is obviously very important, especially as we get older and we put more strain on our hearts after years of (sometimes) poor lifestyle choices.
Grapefruits are a great choice for looking after the heart as they’ve shown the ability to help lower blood pressure and bad LDL cholesterol levels.
This is thought to be because grapefruits are rich in the mineral potassium, that helps to look after the heart and lower the risk of dying from coronary heart disease. Also, the high fibre content of grapefruits also helps to look after the health of the heart, not just the bowel.
Studies consistently show that a diet rich in fibre helps to keep blood pressure and cholesterol measurements at a healthy level.
Summary:Grapefruit has been shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels as it contains mineral potassium.
