Healthy Food – Pomelo

Pomelo (Citrus maxima or Citrus grandis) is usually pale green to yellow when ripe, with sweet white (or, more rarely, pink or red) flesh and very thick albedo (rind pith). It is the largest citrus fruit. The rind of pomelo contains a high amount of bioflavonoid which stops cancer cells from spreading in breast cancer patients by ridding the body of excess estrogen. The juice of pomelo is beneficial in the digestive system. Pomelo has pectin which is effective in reducing the accumulation of arterial deposits. The high content of vitamin C helps to strengthen and maintain the elasticity of arteries. Pomelo can aid in the weight loss process, because the fat burning enzyme in pomelo can help to absorb and reduce the starch and sugar in the body. Pomelo can even help in cases of fatigue, diabetes, fever, insomnia, sore throat, stomach and pancreatic cancer.
