Welcome to another episode of Dr. Veronica Anderson’s new weekly talk radio show,Wellness For The Real World on WebTalkRadio.net. This week it’s all about the anti-oxidant powerhouse – the pomegranate.

Possessing a great flavor and health benefits make pomegranates a great candidate for those who seek a natural health food. Tradition holds that a pomegranate has 613 seeds (representing the 613 commandments in the Torah), though an actual count seldom produces that number.

Try the seeds in a fresh salad. Pomegranate provides a substantial amount of potassium, is high in fiber, and contains vitamin C, B5 and niacin. It may help reduce the risk of having a heart disease, heart attacks, and strokes.
