By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Sometimes our bodies just want a fruit smoothie. While we don’t recommend going all-fruit all the time, it’s okay to a enjoy 100% fruit smoothies on occasion. Especially when it’s packed with pomegranate seeds, grapes and strawberries that are particularly high in nutrients and antioxidants. A small study with heart patients suffering with severe carotid artery blockages were given an ounce of pomegranate juice daily for a year, the results showed the people who took the pomegranate juice experienced lowered blood pressure by over 12%, with a 30% reduction in atherosclerotic plaque, while the placebo participants experienced their atherosclerotic plaque increase by 9%. Enjoy this not-too-sweet fruit only smoothie the next time you need a refreshing beverage.
