Pomegranates are rich in fibre and antioxidants! Their delicious juice helps eliminate free radicals from the body and stimulates white blood cells to neutralize toxins, promoting a stronger and healthier immune system.

They’re naturally anti-inflammatory and help relieve joint pain and stiffness. Also, for all of those Candida sufferers out there, the compounds in pomegranates can help fight harmful micro-organisms like certain types of bacteria and yeast. Of course, in moderation as those yeasty beasties will feed on too many of their natural sugars.

This antioxidant rich fruit is definitely Smart Fuel Approved!!
