A new study has found that grapefruit juice may help to boost immunity. The study found that it contains a compound that can help to increase the production of immune cells.
The study’s lead author said that the findings could have important implications for people who are at risk of developing infections. “If we can find a way to enhance the body’s natural defenses against infection, it could have a profound impact on public health,” she said.
The compound in grapefruit juice that is thought to boost immunity is called D-limonene. Previous studies have shown that D-limonene can help to protect against cancer and improve liver function.
