Pomegranates are a little bit tart, even when they’re ripe, but the purple dyes they have in them are powerful anti-oxidants, and protect your body and your blood vessels. In addition, they’re excellent for the heart. I believe when they’re in season, you should be sure to get your fill of this important fruit. They protect not only your heart, but your other vessels, and the vessels in your skin. They’re a valuable addition to a diet that keeps you healthy.
