{Pilot} ComplementDeet : Orange and Pomegranate

Match Made: Orange and Pomegranate

Taste: Alone, orange is a bit bland. Too rudimentary and familiar with everyone who has a sense for citrus in their lives. And pomegranate, many don't know what to make of the "seeded apple" when eating them alone. Is it too tart and tangy to distinguish the sweetness?
Together, orange and pomegranate combine their acidic twangs to something much more enjoyable. 

{What benefits do these two double dose you with?}
Together Is Better: 
  • Skin Care
    • The beta-carotenes in oranges help prevent aging, and the seeds of pomegranates has the nutrients beneficial for epidermal renewal. Together, they are bound to work for all kinds of pros for your skin.
  • Digestive Aid
    • The fiber of oranges helps your digestive tract run smoothly, and the pomegranate juice can prevent it from overrunning! Eat these together for the perfect balance.
  • Virus Fighter
    • Pomegranates have the highest potential for preventing the HIV, which just goes to show how strong it is when coming to fighting viruses! Oranges protect from viral infections, so the two together are doing your internal workings a help.
  • Cancer Protection
    • Pomegranates will signal for your body to neutralize itself. Because of all the anti-oxidants, your white blood cells will begin to clear out all the bad and possibly harmful toxins, lessening the risk of cancer. And oranges, being of that citrus family, have citrus limonoids, clinically proven to help in fighting against skin, lung, breast, and colon cancers.
