Pomegranates are often called a superfood but what make them so special? Find out!

- A study completed in 2006 revealed that pomegranate’s anti-inflammatory properties may help prevent cancer. Pomegranate juice may help the body’s attack cancer cells in human breast, prostate and colon cancer. How amazing is that?
