Grapefruit’s Grand Architecture
Grapefruit holds a potent mixture of beneficial minerals, vitamins, and nutrients that help the body in so many ways. Rich in vitamins A and C, this citrus family member has excellent antioxidant properties that make it prevalent in regeneration. It also contains small amounts of vitamin E, another form of antioxidant commonly desired in most skin-care products.
As far as its mineral makeup, pink grapefruit contains calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus in larger quantities. Other minerals available in smaller quantities include sodium, zinc, copper, manganese, and selenium. Minerals hold great importance in restructuring and retexturing cell surfaces to maintain their strength.
Some other nutrients present in pink grapefruit, like thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin help maintain numerous functions in multiple bodily processes, like digestion and immunity. Pink grapefruits contain folate, choline, and betaine as well. Many of these nutrients help the performance of a number of enzymatic processes.
Gain Health Through Pink Grapefruit
Pink grapefruit helps the body with a number of different ailments, while supplying necessary receptors with plentiful amounts of the aforementioned substances. We covered a variety of health issues that grapefruit not only prevents, but can remedy. Add more pink grapefruit to your diet to let this wonder-fruit work its natural wonders.
If you struggle with health conditions like diabetes, obesity, arthritis, or high blood pressure, then supplementing your diet with more pink grapefruit might be the key to achieving health. The fruit can make weight loss goals easier to attain, and keep blood pressure levels healthy. As an anti-inflammatory, it can help those struggling with arthritis manage pain, and its antioxidant content makes it an essential in preventing cancer.
Pink grapefruits are also excellent for liver cleansing, because of the vitamin C available in its flesh. It aids the liver in extracting toxic compounds that could later make it into the blood stream. This also helps the liver to burn fat, thus adding a dimension to grapefruit’s weight loss abilities.
Pregnant women can also benefit from adding pink grapefruit to their meals in order to maintain a healthy pregnancy. Pink grapefruit helps ensure proper bone growth and maintenance of cell strength while the fetus develops. The vitamin B content can prevent birth defects and ensures proper growth. Not to mention, grapefruit boosts the immune system and response, which is something every pregnant woman could use.
Pink Grapefruit for Sparkling Skin
Of course, our favorite thing about the pink grapefruit is its long list of beauty benefits that we can capture in our bottles and jars for you to use! We put pink grapefruit ingredients into a variety of our products to ensure our clients’ healthy skin regimen. Pink grapefruit is one of the most successful secrets of beauty, and we want to share it with you.
First, pink grapefruit works as a preventative measure when applied to the skin. It can prevent aging effects, and protect against environmental pollutants that cause damage to the skin’s surface. This is due to its antioxidant content, including vitamin C which is a free-radical scavenger. For this very reason, we use pink grapefruit essential oil in our Super Fruit Facial Cream to complete our formula for environmental protection.
We also use pink grapefruit essential oil in our Plum Perfect Eye Cream – a client favorite. The essential oil in this formula functions to gently brighten the skin around the eyes, fading away dark circles caused from stress, lack of sleep, age, or environmental damage. Pink grapefruit, like most citrus fruits, makes the complexion lighter and more evenly toned.
Our Grapefruit and Bergamot deodorants let pink grapefruit take the starring role, as this freshly sweet citrus lends its antibacterial properties to kill odor-causing bacteria. It also serves to make the skin on the underarms softer and firmer, to help you avoid any scaly or rough patches.
Pink grapefruit also earns its love by making an appearance in our Anti-Blemish Facial Cleanser. This is because the fruit’s acid content makes it excellent in controlling oil production, as it shrinks pores with its astringent qualities. The skin-brightening qualities also make pink grapefruit a must for fading acneic scars or marks from irritation.
