Gifts from the Pomegranates

Who wants to write (or read) about deep, philosophical horseshyte, or an old guys’ sarcastic take on current events of insanity around Christmas – the Holy Day turned into a personal debt-inducing season for the benefit of lousy, plastic peddling corporations? Not many.

So instead of the nightly rant about the latest broth of insanity poured over whatever Christmas meal that might await us – a bit of the beautiful bounty from the heavens in the form of a fruit, seems to be much more in order as millions prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ by exchanging human-made junk, and ignoring conversations of family members gathering together because an incoming, inane, insipid and gloriously insignificant text popping up on their hand held radiation devices every 5 minutes or so, is much more important than real conversation.

One of the natural products that have shown potential use as alternative treatments to cancer is the pomegranate (Punica granatum) fruit. Countless studies have looked into the anticancer potential of pomegranate. However, it wasn’t until recently that researchers from Brazil were able to observe pomegranate’s anticancer properties in an in vivo study. Their findings, which were published in the Journal of Medicinal Plants Research, included the potential systemic effects of pomegranate, which were not evaluated in previous in vitro studies.

Pomegranate fruit has long been used as a traditional remedy for health problems such as sore throats, coughs, urinary tract infections, digestive disorders, skin disorders, and arthritis. With the current advancements in science, researchers were able to identify the bioactive compounds in the fruit that are potentially involved in these applications. They found that pomegranates are rich in tannins like punicalagin, punicalin, gallic acid, ellagic acid, and ellagic acid derivatives. Existing publications also attribute the healing, antimicrobial, chemopreventive, and antitumor effects of pomegranates to these compounds.

And yet, contrary to many humans navel-gazing, self-centered ideas that history started the minute they were born, and not a moment before – and that nothing that may have happened before their un-immaculate conception took place – Mother Earth, God, or the committee of dolphins who started this nutty experiment, did leave a host of natural benefits to our health…from just one frickin’ piece of fruit.

Cast your eyes on these health benefit gems from this simple fruit:

Pomegranate juice also provides other health benefits in addition to its anti-cancer benefits. Here are some of them:

It is rich in antioxidants: Pomegranate juice is packed with antioxidants. In fact, it contains higher antioxidant levels than most other fruit juices. It is also three times rich er in antioxidants than red wine and green tea. These antioxidants can help eliminate free radicals from the body, protect cells from damage, and fight inflammation.

It is rich in vitamins: Pomegranate juice can provide more than 40 percent of the daily vitamin C requirement. Make sure to drink homemade or fresh pomegranate to get the most of vitamin C as this vitamin can be broken down when pasteurized. Pomegranate is also a good source of other nutrients, including folate, potassium, and vitamin K.

It is good for the brain: A study found that drinking eight ounces of pomegranate juice every day may enhance learning and memory. The antioxidant content of the juice may also help to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. (Related: Pomegranate juice shown to halt Alzheimer’s disease progression.)

It aids in digestion: The anti-inflammatory properties of pomegranate juice may help improve the digestive function, especially in people with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and other inflammatory bowel diseases.

It supports heart health: Drinking pomegranate juice may also protect the heart and arteries as it enhances blood flow and prevents arteries from being stiff and thick. It may also stall plaque growth and cholesterol buildup in the arteries. In addition, it may help lower systolic blood pressure.  – via naturalnews.com

Jesus, Mary and Joseph!  And all this is just some of the benefits from just ONE piece of fruit! And even more astounding is that it isn’t taken in via a vat of chemicals from the flu shot, the measles shot, the shingles shot, or any of the myriad of injected poisons that our caring government and their pharmaceutical associates want us to think is necessary for health.

But for those still enthralled with the scent of shit that the mainstream media provides on a daily bases – as a public service, we provide something, which is, of course the corporate media’s turd-de-jour – blaming Russia for everything wrong with world at large.

The following entertaining clip from Jimmy Dore is sure to light a fire up the ass of those still bewitched by Washington’s devilry of blaming Russia for everything from hemorrhoids to American “unexceptionalism”:

And if this isn’t enough…then we offer true Russian propaganda in the form of the holiday delight that so many Americans are snuggling up to during this “holiday” season, allowing their senses to breath deeply of the programming of vodka, borscht, magnificent Russian classical music – composed centuries ago, brainwashing their minds into allowing the psychopath’s in Washington, to continue to spout their ideas that everyone must follow – that of a world gone mad, where the madness of the day is celebrated as genius, – where we all suffer, where we all are tormented, where we are all made to be less of human being, and where we allow these shysters continue to strip away our humanity.

Tchaikovsky, and the brilliant minds before us that we continue to ignore – had a bit of a different take:
