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!

Fruit of the Month: Peaches

Peach is a fruit native to china, but cultivated in almost all the countries with a cool climate. They have an outer skin that is reddish-yellow in color, while the flesh is either white or yellow. Peaches that have a white flesh are usually very sweet and have very little acidity. However, the yellow-fleshed ones typically have an acidic tang, coupled with sweetness. A peach is extremely rich in vitamin A and potassium, apart from abounding in a number of other nutrients, making them rank very high in nutritional value and good for the health of an individual.

Did you know Peaches help make the skin healthy and also add color to the complexion? They do! They are delicious and help you stay beautiful. You can’t lose!
