More and more, we are hearing about super foods. I come across these all the time in my reading. The ads make them sound like the one food that is going to save your life, live longer, or whatever they claim to do. Unfortunately, our culture is fickle and into fads. One month's superstar is the next month's dud.
However, there are a few foods that do offer significant health benefits. I decided to start this section of The Natural Path to help separate the facts from the hype. As I come across these so called super foods, I will look into their health benefits and present them here.
Pomegranates and pomegranate juice are foods not widely consumed in the U.S., although the fruit is widely eaten in other countries. This is partly due to the difficulty in peeling and eating the fruit. However, the tangy flavor of pomegranates, when mixed with other foods, can jazz up the food. For example, adding pomegranate to your morning cereal will add some zing and some additional fiber. Along with its great flavor, pomegranates have strong anti-oxidant health benefits.
