As a source of vitamin C, the grapefruit is exceeded among common fruits only by the orange and lemon. Extracts from the grapefruit's peel contain antioxidant vitamin C, as well as hesperidin and naringin, which are also antioxidants. Hesperidin and naringin belong to a group of plant-based chemicals called flavonoids. These phytochemicals may fight cancer by inhibiting the spread of cancer cells.
