Fire Engine Red Smoothie

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

The vibrant red color in this smoothie means it is extremely full of antioxidants! These very special compounds found in pomegranates are called punicalagins. Pomegranates have been shown, due to their VERY high potent antioxidant content, to protect you against breast, prostate and colon cancer as well as having excellent cardiovascular protective agents.
