I love grapefruit. I have it for breakfast almost every morning. 

Did you know grapefruit is rich in vitamin C and citric acid? The vitamin C boosts your immune system. The citric acid decreases the build up of calcium in your kidneys and the pH of the urine. This can help prevent kidney stones. Grapefruit is not safe for everyone. It contains a substance that inhibits cytochrome P450, an enzyme your body uses to metabolize certain medications. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you take any of the following medications: immunosuppressants, benzodiazepines, calcium channel blockers, indinavir, carbamazepine, hormones and some statins. It is safe to eat grapefruit with these statins: pravastatin (Pravachol), rosuvastatin (Crestor), fluvastatin (Lescol) and pitavastatin (Livalo)
