Best Superfoods for Fall: Pomegranates
This fruit is especially high in antioxidants like ellagic acid that reduce inflammation—a factor in both heart disease and many types of cancer. There’s even more good news: a new study found that pomegranate juice reduced the growth rate of prostate cancer. The juice improves blood flow to your heart and may promote blood flow to sexual organs, potentially improving sexual potency. Maybe that’s why Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, was credited with planting the first pomegranate tree on Cyprus!
Best Superfoods for Fall: Tomatoes
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which may help reduce the risk of heart disease, breast, lung and prostate cancer. Cooking helps activate lycopene, so tomato paste and sauce may be especially beneficial. Tomatoes also have vitamins A, C, E and potassium.
