Pomegranate is quite the exotic fruit, or so they say.
Hard to get? Hard to use?
Pomegranate is actually readily available in most markets in the southern United States. It’s often been known as a Christmas fruit because of its ruby red color and succulent juices, but it’s healthy, too.
Pomegranates are chock full of polyphenols, an antioxidant that may slow aging. Pomegranates may also lower “bad” cholesterol, reduce inflammation and control blood pressure. Studies show that consumption of pomegranates can reduce the risk of prostate cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
So, while they’re in season, eat ‘em up!
