Pomegranates, Exciting!

Pomegranates are getting more and more popular—and for good reason! Dr. Fuhrman considers them to be quite the all-star. Here’s a quick list of their health benefits from Pomegranate Power:
Features of Pomegranate

1. Most powerful anti-oxidant of all fruits
2. Potent anti-cancer and immune supporting effects
3. Inhibits abnormal platelet aggregation that could cause heart attacks, strokes and embolic disease
4. Lowers cholesterol and other cardiac risk factors
5. Lowers blood pressure
6. Shown to promote reversal of atherosclerotic plaque in human studies.
7. May have benefits to relieve or protect against depression and osteoporosis
Pretty cool, right? And Dr. Fuhrman isn’t the only one excited about pomegranates. In this video CNN’s Dr. Bill Lloyd crows about this nutritional superstar, coincidently also named Pomegranate Power.
