  • I have a question, drinking grapefruit juice VS eating grapefruit? To me eating fruits makes your saliva to create digestive enzymes which is beneficial for absorbing all the good nutrients of the fruit, whereas drinking the juice is straight down to your stomach.

  • Thank you so very much for explaining the benefits of this fruit. I honestly would prefer something processed and yummy (like a cup of yogurt) but I know now that eating foods that come naturally off the tree are much better for us:-) Thank you for encouraging healthy eating habits:-)

  • you are an idiot people like you shouldn’t spread propaganda about something that doesn’t know anything about grapefruit. its the best thing for you it gives you pure energy for long workout.
    its’s the best thing out there for energy instead drinking poison coffee. people drink coffee for energy instead citric juices.

  • Medications can interact with all forms of grapefruit the fresh fruit, juice or even the frozen concentrate can result in problems. Interactions may occur with commonly used drugs such as those that lower cholesterol, treat high blood pressure, or fight cancer. If you drink grapefruit juice, always have your pharmacist check for drug interactions with any new prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) drug.

  • many do not like the bitter taste of grapefruits. Thanks to that I receive a basket full of grapefruit from an old friend from time to time

  • Love Ruby Red Grapefruits and try to eat them everyday. They have such a clean, refreshing taste to them, a real juicy zing to your mouth along with all their other health benefits! Thanks for all the info, some of which I didn’t know. Passing this along…”knowledge is power” like they say!

  • Kudos for the Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you thought about Dinanlinson Collecting Muscle Approach (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a great one of a kind product for learning how to get big and lean fast without the headache.

  • It’s a delight seeing & hearing the plus of consuming grapefruit. Much appreciated. In an upcoming episode can u feature Brazilnuts & grapeseed oil benefits! Thanks

  • We have a grapefruit tree at home and there are hundreds of grapefruit on it. Also I wouldn’t of existed if it weren’t for grapefruits. But I can’t be bothered explaining it right now because it’s complicated

  • no lie i actually slept with this woen in miaimi, i was in a club, in the vip, carrying myself like an arrogant emir and we came together. in the bed room she had me dress up in her fathers clothes and violently ravish her, my psychique ensured it was painful.afterwards it was i that felt used.. passion, extreme passionn takes something from you. experiecnce / life cant help but take away the sheen, and replace it with what? irony?

  • I am one really big fan of grapefruit. I started to eat it for my problem with gallstones and it came as a real surprise to me that after a week, my bit of belly fat was gone and I had to buy new trousers afterwards. For that alone, I recommend having grapefruit in your diet. I eat the whole fruit, sans the rind. I would buy tons of them when they’re on sale, peel then put the slices into containers to freeze. Use ziplocks to properly measure the quantity you can eat in one sitting. I’ve been slim ever since and I never passed a kidney stone again:) Turning 65 this August (photo is 3 years old)!

  • What a lovely voice. I am not anti robot it’s just that this voice feels like an ear massage. I think finally I will actually put the information to use.

  • Grapefruit is amazing. I don’t care about if they are healthy or not. I like the taste. I did not as a kid but as an adult i really enjoy the some of the bitter notes that goes along with the sweet and sour.

  • 1 a day keeps the flys and insects away they wont bite you. I worked with polish guys in a forest they drank 1 1/2 L of indian tonic water a day before. because of the key ingredient found in grap fruit. I had 47 bites between them they had 4.

  • Thanks for the great info….I knew Grapefruits had vitamin C in them, but I didn’t know about the other nutrients or that it helped to lower cholesterol, high blood pressure and triglycerides as well as being great for the kidneys etc. Since I’ve been insulin resistance and have had high blood pressure which I’m being treated for, I’m going to start eating one a day! I did read however that drinking grapefruit juice with prescription drugs wasn’t a good idea as it interferes with the absorption of those drugs so will take meds separately from drinking or eating grapefruits!

  • Van you do fruits that help woth hormones and fertility. I’m currently struggling with infertility and would be interested to learn about what fruits/veg could be beneficial to my journey

  • Grapefruit juice can be dangerous if you’re on a high cholesterol maintenance regimen. Grapefruit juice + Cholesterol meds (example: Lipitor) = higher risk for toxicity.

    More than 50 drugs have been identified that may cause harm if you drink grapefruit juice because Grapefruit juice can delay, decrease or enhance aborption of some drugs. It can interfere with the enzymes that break down some drugs in your digestive system so more of the drugs stay in your body. This can lead to potentially dangerous drug levels, causing serious side effects.
    Grapefruit juice with statin drugs may cause heart muscle damage and organ transplant patient may experience infections, kidney damage, heart rhythm problems, and internal bleeding. The effects of grapefruit can last up to 24 hours.

    To be on the safe side it’s better to avoid grapefruit and grapefruit juice if you’re taking any medications and always ask your doctor about what foods are safe to take with your prescription because some foods may interact with some drugs.

  • I LOOOOOVE Grapefruit!!!! I’ve been drinking it everyday recently and have noticed that my appetite is much more in control, especially my sugar cravings!

  • I used to eat one grapefruit a day until I read it increases the risk of Breast cancer��
    Apparently a quarter of grapefruit a day can increase Brest cancer risk by a whopping 30% in menopausal women!

  • Was eating grapefruit without noting any noticable effects. But now i know. Im so safe from kidney stones, cancer, diabetes, and other horrible diseases. I love grapefruit despite its very sharp taste, my body and my taste buds just love this amazing disease fighter from GOD. Thankyou God, thankyou, thankyou, im so grateful for all of these provisions ��

  • Grapefruits are wonderful no question. If you’re taking medications (especially for cardiac diseases), talk to your doctor first. Grapefruits interact with a long list of medications like calcium channel blockers and MAOIs. If they don’t interact with your medications, go nuts!

  • Pharmacist verified about not taking grapefruit. BUT if you ask they suggest you watch the time and you can still eat or drink grapefruit. Just wait a few hours BEFORE or AFTER taking your tricky med. I personally believe grapefruit is such a valuable product making the effort to use grapefruit if you like or need it. Change meds would even be a better solution. My opinion but do your own research. If you do that you may stop the med and keep the grapefruit.:)

  • My grandmother ate grapefruit everyday she ever catch cold it keep her strong.she live to be 98 yrs old.i been eat grapefruit sent I was 15 yrs old I never had a cold or get now 58 Yrs old make me feel make you Punker I call it the magic fruit.i some time I take the juice clean my face with it.I have no wrinkles on my face is smooth I look about 35 yrs old.

  • Just started eating grapefruit a few times a week when I have smaller dinners and it really helps keep me full. It also tastes great! Lost 15 lbs in 2 weeks

  • Just had 2 grapefruits. A bit sugar yummy. Can’t stop eating and start grazing by the RR tracks. Problem are the meds not the fruit so eat up

  • I used to love grapefruit. They are sooooo refreshing. But when my blood thinner (which I have to take because of a heart problem) stopped working properly, and I got switched to a new type of blood thinner, I hated that the new medication had the “[SERIOUSLY!] No Grapefruit [EVER]” warning on it!��

  • i was drinking pink grapefruit soda without knowing how a grapefruit looks like, i search it and this comes up first after many sips xD

  • Well I don’t take medications….. so… the stupid title scared the crap out of me Because my diet consists of eating grapefruit.

    The only way I can eat the nasty grapefruit is to add some honey to it, then I can get it down.

  • Too much BS, you were probably paid by a pharmaceutical company, idk. But how can you say a fruit, that has plenty of health benefits be bad and drugs are good? Fyi, the reason why pharmaceutical companies try to keep grapefruit away from people is because they know it’s one of the healthiest foods in the planet, it can cute many diseases but the cover up is huge, they have tried to get it off the shelves, thank God for those crazy vegans who have kept it on stores since most people won’t eat it on their normal diet. I can’t respect someone who believes a fruit is a problem and go pro pharmaceutical because that’s what you did, the universe has heard you, be aware because you have offended nature, you have offended life and the universe itself

  • I thank you for this information for me this works in two ways I am type 2 diabetic and I have high blood pressure so I’m going to try to consume grapefruit I was never big on it but anyting healthy is worth a shot although I don’t need to lose weight I need to gain it thank you again
