POMEGRANATE - AMAZING FRUIT FOR WOMEN

Do you think that nature gives us small guidelines sometimes?


I am a big believer in wisdom of the nature so when I read about the resemblance of pomegranate to women's ovary it really made me thrilled.


Pomegranates in their shape look like human's and other mammalians ovaries, when you cut them through the structure is also similar.


And, not surprising, studies have revealed that pomegranate contains an estrogen structurally and functionally similar to one found in mammals - it's name is estrone. Pomegranate seeds are the richest plant source of steroidal estrogens yet found.


Pomegranate has been shown also to act selectively to modulate estrogen receptors that are beneficial to the organism while down - regulating activity at the receptors known to be associated with estrogen - sensitive cancer.


I think it is an amazing and important fruit for women!


So why not to try to incorporate it into our diet? Especially now when when they are really fresh and delicious in the shops.


Just to encourage you here is a recipe for salad which included pomegranate (inspired by tabbouleh salad):


- 1 cup cooked quinoa/barley


- 2 handful of chopped parsley/coriander/kale


- 2 tomatoes chopped


- 1/2 cup of pomegranates


- 1/2 chopped onion


- juice of 1/2 lemon


Just mix all together and enjoy! :)
