Can One Single Fruit Guarantee Optimal Health?

If  I told you there was a single fruit that comes as close as possible regarding the restoration or maintenance of optimal health, it might make your eyebrows raise. While I am writing this to you right now I have this fruit in my refrigerator and I want to make sure that it is an indispendable part of my dietary habits. I am talking about the awesome health benefits of pomegranate. Its anti-inflammatory properties, its ability to battle any kind of infection and its liver-rejuvenating power are only few of its benefits. Non-vegans whose diet is often still based on processed food resulting into an “overdose” of triglycerides with their hazardous impact on the heart health should eat one pomegranate at least once a day because it contributes essentially to remove these triglycerides. Of course, you know about the phrase: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” When it comes to consuming pomegranate, I would put it this way: “A pomegranate a day makes your optimal health stay.” Read on to find out why!

“A new study published in the journal Atherosclerosis confirms that pomegranate extract may prevent and/or reverse the primary pathology associated with cardiac mortality: the progressive thickening of the coronary arteries caused by the accumulation of fatty materials known as atherosclerosis. Pomegranate was found to not only improve blood flow in the cardiovascular system of heart patients, but also helped to reduce inflammation and high blood pressure. Pomegranates aid in reducing excess triglycerides, which form as a result of a diet high in processed foods. Removing these excess triglycerides may help to ward off heart attacks and various heart problems.
