We have spent the last month harvesting and juicing the domestic pomegranates from our garden and have collected wild pomegranates from this hill side to make a syrup concentrate for the winter. This year the domestic pomegranates were sweet and refreshing and even some of the wild pomegranates were not too tart.
So why pomegranate juice? It is rich in antioxidant polyphenols, which can reverse atherosclerosis as well as vascular inflammation, and thereby lower blood pressure. In addition to antioxidants, pomegranates are a source of fiber, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium. And it has other anti-inflammatory effects.
We love our pomegranates, do you?
