Get Healthy with the Maker's Superfoods: Part 4

While we're on the topic of fruit, do you want to try something new? It might be a new experience for you, but you wouldn't be eating anything that mankind hasn't been nourished by for thousands of years. What is this old food, that's probably new to you? It's the beautiful, and incredibly nutritious, pomegranate. Here's what Jordan Rubin has to say about these delightful fruits:

Superfood/Healing Food #4: Pomegranate
(from p. 152 of the Maker's Diet, by Jordan Rubin)

"Pomegranate is called the fruit of royalty in the Bible and is one of the richest sources of antioxidants. Pomegranates contain high amounts of ellagic acid, an antioxidant with proven anticancer properties and excellent benefits for female health."

Well, that was a short but sweet description! Dr. Mercola says that pomegranates can fight heart disease as well. And just as a sidenote, the reason that antioxidants are important for your health is because they help to prevent degenerative diseases. Degenerative diseases are those such as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's, diabetes, arthritis, among others.

So go get some organic pomegranates from your local health food store. With the Maker's fruits, you can have your health and eat some sweets too!
