It has been proven that this white part of grapefruit, located between the bark and the flesh, would actually be a better fat burner.

The slimming benefits of grapefruit skin


Everything is good in grapefruit, juice, flesh, seeds, bark and especially white skin. It was recently discovered that it is this part that would contain the most pectin in grapefruit. This dose of pectin is enough to counter cholesterol. Indeed, pectin is a soluble fiber that helps lower the bad cholesterol contained in the blood.

Also, it would apparently be very effective against infections of the digestive system, especially caused by parasites and intestinal worms.

The white part of the grapefruit therefore cleanses the digestive tract, and being also a good natural medicine against flatulence, it is obvious that it helps to lose weight, especially in the belly.
