Very few foods have the same intensive cleansing properties as grapefruit. Their tart and tangy taste needs to be paired with a complementing ingredient such as rosemary. Pink grapefruit contains lycopene in high doses. This carotenoid phytonutrient has anti-tumor benefits, fighting against free radical damage and offering intensive antioxidant protection. Rosemary’s essential oils help with digestion and have anti-bacterial properties, while cucumber provides this infused water with important minerals, vitamins and extra nutrients.
