Nutrition is the key to a healthy life. It is time to get the right information about what health is, and what constitutes a healthy choice.
I bring to clients the newest and best information on how to stop the progression of illness, and where possible to reverse illness. We have been able to bring considerable, measurable results in nearly 100 percent of clients. We can help you, too! Call me, and lets talk about Your Health. As we go forward into Women’s Heart Month, let’s delve into a relatively new fruit. It is the much over looked fruit of the pomegranate tree, and is one of the best fruits for a healthy heart.
The pomegranate is a fruit bursting with vitamins, iron and antioxidants, for strengthening the bloods’ platelets, and this becomes a benefit for all persons, and for all ages.
This fruit is packed with not only heart saving antioxidants, but is known to help in preserving a smooth and beautiful exterior, the skin, and even has anti inflammatory properties. That is good inside and out.
It’s main claim to fame is in reducing the risk of heart attacks and strokes by preventing cholesterol deposits from forming inside the arteries.
Pomegranates are very high in antioxidants called “flavenoids” that are very effective in fighting the accumulation of free radicals that contribute to premature aging and chronic diseases. These flavonoids support the body’s normal defenses in the prevention of certain types of cancer, as well as atherosclerosis, osteoarthritis, and diabetes.
With a wellspring of healing vitamins, A, C, and E as well as folic acid, it works to arrest conditions that cause the thickening and hardening of arterial walls, as well as damage to cartilage and joints, and even help relieve muscle pain.
The antioxidants help support the immune system, which is said to guard against premature births, low birth weight babies, the feeling of general malaise during menopause, and even to guard against developing Alzheimer’s disease in later life.
If you are experiencing symptoms such as exhaustion, dizziness, weakness, and / or hearing loss, for no known reason, you may have anemia, for which the Pomegranate fruit or juice will help by supplying quick iron, bringing the values up normally.
Aside from having lots of antioxidants, pomegranate also might have some antiviral properties, and benefit even minor illnesses such as the sore throat.
Now, before you go out to buy a months’ supply of this fruit ( or any fruit ), or start hording bottles of juice, please know that the best fruit is always the fresh whole local organic fruit in season, closest to you. Drink any juice in moderation, except the juice you make at home from the above mentioned fruit.
Then, add this fruit to your rotation of fruits and juices as you continue to try for the 9 to 11 or 13 servings of fresh fruits and veggies each day. You know the saying ‘Variety is the spice of life’, but, is truly the ‘health of life’ when that variety is enjoyed in fresh fruits and veggies.Remember, Health is a Choice.
