Reduce Gum Disease with Grapefruit?
Eating two grapefruits a day can reduce gum
bleeding for those who suffer from gum disease.
A two-week study showed that eating two grapefruits
a day raised vitamin C levels for all participants.
The vitamin C level of smokers in the study almost doubled.
Grapefruit increases blood levels of vitamin C,
which promotes healing, and also lessens damage
caused by free radical molecules.
This aids in the repair of gums.
