The Pomelo and Its Health Benefits

Pomelos are juicy citrus fruits packed full of nourishing nutrients that help keep the body and immune system strong and healthy.

One of the healthiest pieces of exotic tropical fruit you could eat is the pomelo. It is also known as Chinese grapefruits. It is packed full of potent nutrients that help protect the body from several health conditions such as digestive issues, cancers, fatigue, heart disease, high fevers and insomnia. 

What Is Pomelo

The pomelo is the largest citrus fruit that grows in places like Asia, China, North America, Japan, the Caribbean and Australia. The fruit has a greenish thick skin and a reddish pink fleshy pulp inside similar to a grapefruit. Sometimes the flesh can be yellow or white as well. You can find the fruit growing on citrus trees in the heat of summer or in tropical climates. Pomelo fruits can weigh up to 20 pounds or more depending on how long they grow. When you go to eat a pomelo, you will notice it is sweet like an orange, tart like a grapefruit, tangy like a tangerine, and very juicy.

Health Benefits of Pomelo

Eating fresh pomelo fruit or drinking the freshly squeezed juice from one can help prevent toxins and free radical cells from building up in the body. When there are too many toxins and free radical cells in the body health conditions occur such as cancers, bacterial and viral infections, heart disease, the common cold and flu, asthma, allergies, weight gain, digestive issues, stress and insomnia. The juice of the fruit is also useful for treating seizures and respiratory infections.

The potent nutrients in pomelos are vitamins A, B1, B2 and C, bioflavonoid, healthy fats, protein, fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, pectin, antioxidants and enzymes. These nutrients help prevent and treat the health conditions I mentioned above in the last paragraph naturally and effectively.

Those of you who are allergic to pomelos should not use the fruit for its health benefits because server allergic reactions can occur. Eating too many pomelos can cause side effects such as dizziness, painful erections, breathing difficulties and upset stomach. However, these side effects are rare. Before eating this fruit or drinking its juice to treat any of your health conditions or prevent one it is best to talk to your doctor to make sure it is safe for you because pomelos do interact with some medications and health conditions.
