Kiwi does more than just maintaining healthy skin tone and texture. The fruit is also fantastic at reducing blood pressure, and preventing heart disease and stroke. Oranges are equally great in a multitude of ways. An orange has 170 different phytochemicals and at least 60 flavonoids, which have anti-inflammatory properties and strong antioxidant effects.
