Strawberry Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits and protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals. Orange Sweetest medicine, eating 2 to 4 oranges a day helps keep colds away, lowers cholesterol, prevents and dissolves kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.

Watermelon Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92 per cent water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. It is also a key source of lycopene, the cancer fighting oxi-dant. Other nutrients are vitamin C and Potassium.

Guava and Papaya Top the awards for vitamin C. They are clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene, which is good for your eyes.
