PROJECT YOU FINDINGS (8/11/2009)

By Larry



*Happiest of Birthdays to Tim W. (Ferndell T1)!!

*Looking for nature's perfect food? Pomegranate is all the rage, with a high concentration of antioxidants. Antioxidants protect cells and repair damage caused by free radicals. Pomegranate has been said to improve blood flow through arteries, decrease total cholesterol and bad LDL cholesterol, control oral inflammation and bacteria and fungus in periodontal disease, and even help to improve erectile dysfunction. However, please note, there is not enough quality, human research to support or reject these claims. In the meantime, drink up!
