Grapefruit Apple Juice Recipe

Adorable, ambrosial and appetising. This juicing recipe for weight loss is nothing short of spectacular. If you’re looking for a fresh start to your day, this is perfect for you!Apple and Citrus have long been great companions when it comes to frappes. Tart and tangy with an underlying sweetness, grapefruit has a juiciness that rivals that of the ever popular orange and sparkles with many of the same health promoting benefits. Although available throughout the year, they are in season and at their best from winter through early spring. Grapefruits usually range in diameter from four to six inches and include both seed and seedless and pink and white varieties. The wonderful flavor of a grapefruit is like paradise as is expressed by its Latin name, Citrus paradisi.

Ingredients:

  • 1 grapefruit, cut in half
  • 2 medium apples, cored
  • Parsley, several sprigs
  • 1/2 handful of grapes, seedless

Health Benefits:

A study published in the July 2007 edition of the British Journal of Cancer reported that eating grapefruit every day could raise the risk of developing breast cancer by almost a third. The study found that in the test subjects, 50,000 post-menopausal women, eating just a quarter of a grapefruit daily raised the risk by up to 30%. It is believed that the fruit boosts the levels of estrogen, which in turn increases the risk of developing the disease. However, a 2008 study has shown that grapefruit consumption does not increase breast cancer risk and has found a significant decrease in breast cancer risk with greater intake of grapefruit in women who never used hormone therapy.
