Did you know that sipping drinks spiked with grapefruit juice can cut the sugar-sapping blood sugar swings by up to 64 percent? That’s because the fruit is packed with hesperidin that improves the cell’s sensitivity to the blood sugar-regulating hormone insulin. It also has a phytonutrient (d-limonene) that activates key detoxification enzymes in the liver. Experts found this effect can boost the organ’s ability to flush toxins and burn fat by up to 30 percent. Here’s a yummy way to enjoy grapefruit.
