The grapefruit is a fruit which has a skin similar to that of an orange. Its flesh can be white, pink or red and although juicy, the taste of the fruit can be bitter. Since it grows in clusters like grapes, they were then tagged to be called grapefruit.

What can you get from eating a grapefruit? For starters, the grapefruit is a cancer-fighting fruit. The antioxidants, vitamins and minerals in the fruit help keep free radicals at bay. If you have soreness on your throat, fixing yourself up some grapefruit juice can help you with your coughs.

Your body becomes relaxed and fatigue gets to seep out from your body to prime you for sleeping and rest.
