Healthy Benefits of Grapefruit Oil

Grapefruit oil is something we have probably taken for granted our entire lives. While peeling a grapefruit – or any other citrus – the tangy oil spurts from the skin, infusing our senses with satisfaction.

Recent research has proved the effectiveness of grapefruit oil on a variety of skin afflictions and beauty treatments. The main component of this nutrition chemical is d-limonene – another chemical sold by Bell Chem, which protects the body’s cells and is a powerful antioxidant.  Antioxidants inhibit the oxidation of other molecules, a chemical reaction that creates free radicals. By removing free radicals from the body, the likeliness of illness, such as cancer, decreases.

Along with its ability to maintain oxidation homeostasis, grapefruit oil naturally suppresses the appetite, aids in urinary problems by acting as a diuretic, is a natural antioxidant and can be used topically on bruises and sore muscles. Works with your current shampoo or conditioner to leave hair less oily and more easily manageable. Plus, grapefruit oil is antimicrobial – no need for refrigeration or specific handling instructions since it naturally deters pathogens. Many forms of eczema and acne show signs of improvement with a regular regimen of grapefruit oil.

Adding grapefruit oil to your daily routine is extremely simple – a few drops in your drinking water or even white wine rejuvenate and revitalize your day especially, when it’s noted that this nutritional chemical relieves stress and lowers levels of anxiety.
