Pomegranate Juice and Heart Health
(pictured: Green tea with pomegranate, ginger and lemon)
I was doing a little pomegranate juice research today and came across this interesting study regarding the impact it has on heart health. I found it fascinating that something as simple as consuming pomegranate juice can reduce cholesterol oxidation (atherosclerosis), and reduce blood pressure.
This study is yet another reason to continue to drink pomegranate juice. The doctor that wrote “Anticancer” also recommends consuming 8 ounces a day to reduce the probability of cancer. At our house we add a splash to our ginger green tea to add flavor and get our 8 ounces of juice spread throughout the day.
Whether you are concerned about heart health or cancer it seems pomegranate juice is part of the answer. I am going to make another mug of green now with a big splash of pomegranate juice.
