The Cancer-Fighting Fruit

August 12th, 2014

Is it an orange? A grapefruit? No, let me introduce you to the pomelo. Native to South and Southeast Asia, the pomelo fruit is the largest of the citrus fruits. It tastes similar to a grapefruit, but without any of the bitterness.

 

Pomelo is known for its numerous health benefits, but today let’s focus on a big one: Pomelo can help prevent the spread of cancer. Pomelo contains vitamin C, beta-carotene, B vitamins, folic acid, potassium, liminoids and rich bioflaconids. Each of these elements work together to help your body fight against cancer cells.
