Over six hundred thousand Americans die from cardiovascular diseases each year. Furthermore, according to the centers for disease control, one American encounters a heart attack every 43 seconds.
Every person who takes the standard American diet is at risk of developing heart disease. Luckily, there are natural approaches to lower this risk, and reduce the hardening of the arteries.
Scientists have found that a glass of grapefruit juice daily cleanses the arteries and improves heart wellbeing. The phytochemicals in citrus fruits, known as flavonones promote healthier blood vessels and improve blood flow.
Another study was done by researchers at the french national institute and tested that grapefruit juice effect on the blood vessels of 48 women, 50-65 years old. The participants were divided into two groups. One of them was consuming 16 ounces of grapefruit juice daily, and the second group was taking a similar juice with no flavanones.
Researchers showed the results after 6 months, and people who drank grapefruit juice increased their cardiovascular wellbeing, while the other gathering did not encounter any notable improvement.
Grapefruit juice on its own has its unique fragrant aroma, and a bit unpleasant or harsh taste. However, it’s abundant in fiber and glycosides, so you will either love it or hate it.
Preparing this juice is surprisingly easy. In fact, you can do it at home with your slow juicer or a citrus juicer. Additionally, you can consume it raw, or add it to salads and desserts.
Here is a grapefruit juice recipe which prevents heart diseases and stroke:
- 3 large grapefruits
- 1 tablespoon of ginger juice
- 4-5 mint leaves
- 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
Wash the grapefruits, and cut them in half. Then, juice them in a juicer, and pour the drink in a glass. Grate a stump of fresh ginger, add some water and press to set up the ginger juice. Next, pour the ginger juice to a glass, and add the mint leaves. Sweeten with honey. Lastly, place it in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Enjoy!
