Flavanones protect from arterial stiffness in postmenopausal women consuming grapefruit juice for 6 mo: a randomized, controlled, crossover trial.
Habauzit V, Verny MA, Milenkovic D, et. al. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. 2015 July; 102(1):66.
Key Findings: This study examined endothelial function in 48 post menopausal women consuming grapefruit juice or a grapefruit like drink without flavonones (flavonones are naturally present in grapefruit juice). Regular grapefruit juice consumption by middle-aged, healthy postmenopausal women may prevent arterial stiffening and potentially reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Researchers believe this effect may be related to flavanones present in grapefruit.
