Choose your fruit by color:


* Red color: Lycopene is responsible for the red color of fruits like watermelon and grapefruit, which is to clean the blood and prevent occurrences of tumor and cancer.
* Purple color: Flavonoids gives the vibrant purplish color to some fruits like grapes which helps protect against heart disease.
* Orange and yellow: Fruits with orange or deep yellow flesh like apricots, cantaloupes (Bangi), papaya, red guava, and mangoes get their color from the yellow-orange pigment that harbors beta-carotene, which the body converts to vitamin A. Beta-carotene helps prevent eye diseases and premature wrinkles – helps you to age slowly or even hides your age!
