Grapefruit Benefits for Skin

1. Grapefruit Repairs DNA

Grapefruit is full of Naringenin, a flavonoid that helps to repair damaged DNA in human prostate cancer cells. The risk of prostate cancer, the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men, increases with age since the older they become, the more times the cells have divided and the greater the chance for DNA mutations to occur.

It helps to restore health to damaged DNA by inducing two enzymes that repair DNA during the replication stage.

Enjoying Grapefruit regularly may be one way to prevent the progression of prostate cancer.
