Fruit of the Month: Pomegranate

Why are pomegranates good for you? Researchers report that they are rich in antioxidants that can keep bad LDL cholesterol from oxidizing (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, May 2000). This degradation of LDL seems to be an initial step in the development of atherosclerosis. In addition, pomegranate juice, like aspirin, can help keep blood platelets from clumping together to form unwanted clots. Pomegranates have also been linked to a decrease in risk for heart disease! This fruit may look unusual, but I urge you to give it a try! Pick one up next time you’re at the grocery store and indulge in the tasty and healthy pomegranate!
