I Love Pomegranate

I love pomegranate. When I was still in the Philippines, I never missed to eat pomegranate when it was its season. That was why I was both happy and surprised when I saw this pomegranate on Walmart's fruit sections this afternoon. You can't imagine how quick I grabbed some. As if I was afraid that there will be nothing left for me.
I found out that Pomegranade aren't only delicious, they're a veritable treasure trove of health benefits, too. It contains polyphenols, one of nature's most powerful and effective anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants help protect your body against "free radicals," major factors in aging as well as in chronic conditions like heart disease and cancer. Pomegranades ar also chock-full of Vitamin C, a vital nutrient that's has been shown to reduce both the length and severity of colds; and Vitamin K, a substance required for healthy blood coagulation.
Wow! Just when I thought it was just a "play food". You know what I mean? You just playfully pluck up the small seeds, suck it and spit it out. Now that I learned it's nutrition fact, I will eat it like I never had before.
