Orange, grapefruit, carrots and a touch of ginger combine to bring you a healthier fruit juice you can enjoy in the mornings alongside your Sunday Morning Banana Protein Pancakes. The spotlight is focusing on the grapefruit. It’s a wonderful addition to a juice for its long list of health benefits including properties that support weight loss by improving blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity. It provides lycopene, potassium, vitamin A and vitamin C. Grapefruits are also high in a soluble fiber called pectin which has a beneficial effect on helping to reduce cholesterol levels which is still available in the juice. Grapefruits also support the natural detoxification pathways through the liver and increases the production of glutathione which is a detox enzyme. We promise this is a much better option than most store-bought juice.
Note: When taking medications it is always important to check if they are contraindicated with grapefruit as it can impair their effect.
