Key Ingredient Benefits

Grapefruit: This breakfast favorite is an excellent source of vitamin C. In addition, grapefruits are a good source of B vitamins including vitamin B1 and folate, as well as vitamin A, calcium and potassium. The rich pink and red colors of grapefruit are due to lycopene, a carotenoid phytonutrient. Lycopene is only found in pink and red grapefruit. White grapefruit does not provide this carotenoid. Lycopene appears to have anti-tumor activity. Among the common dietary carotenoids, lycopene has the highest capacity to help fight oxygen free radicals, which are compounds that can damage cells.

Pomegranate: This beautiful fruit boasts a powerful combination of antioxidants. Research has also found that it may increase blood flow and decrease the risk of prostate cancer.
