This exotic fruit also helps cleanse your arteries. According to a 2005 study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists believe that the high antioxidants (particularly vitamin C and polyphenols) in pomegranate stimulate the production of nitric oxide, which in turn helps keep blood flowing and arteries open. This fruit can even reduce existing plaque formations in the arteries.
You can drink freshly extracted pomegranate juice, or make fruit salads and smoothies to include pomegranates in your diet.
Note: As pomegranate juice may not be suitable when taken with certain medications, it is best to consult your doctor about drinking this juice to clean your arteries.
