Need something fresh and light after ploughing through a summer of indulgence?
Blend together the crimson and orange colours of fall for a giant hit of antioxidants, vitamins and fiber – all necessary for true vitality. Pomegranates in particular are a major booster to heart health. They're known to contain punicalagin, a potent antioxidant that lowers cholesterol, blood pressure and reduces the gunky stuff that builds up in your arteries, aka plaque.
