Brush off Winter "Pomenantly"
February 12, 2018
Feeling like you need a kick in the pants to get yourself out of the stuper of winter? Well we’ve got a fantastic Brush off Winter “Pomenantly” recommendation, to leave those feelings of hibernation and S.A.D in the dust and wake up to the freshness and rebirth of Spring time. Pomegranates are indeed a fruit of the winter months but no need to leave these gems of a fruit to last season. Getting back to the swing of fitness as we get more daylight? Drink Pom Wonderful (pomegranate juice). Pre and Post workout pomegranate juice makes for a fantastic workout drink, 1-2 oz before or after a workout and or 1-2 oz in your water bottle for an intra workout. Pomegranates contain nitrates, which is converted to nitrite and can then help support blood flow, helping the body bring more oxygen to your muscle tissue, improving your work out and recovery. Not quite hitting the gym because you still feel stuck in hibernation mode? We can all relate. The lack of daylight turns our melatonin production to super high mode which makes us feel extra sleepy. As we get more daylight this feeling of lethargy and even S.A.D (seasonal affective disorder) will start to fade, but you don’t have to wait for the sun to get that burst of energy. Add Nativas Organic Pomegranate Powder to your smoothies, shakes, smoothie bowls, yogurt, chia pudding,overnight oatmeal and salad dressing. The low glycemic carbohydrate energy you get from pomegranate arils and the juice power ups every cell in your body and your brain! Since it is a low glycemic fruit you won’t get the spike in your sugar, so no crashes. Also Poms give your energy from macros like protein and fats too! Just because it’s Spring time you don’t have to abandon the warmth of hot drinks, get your Pomegranate fix with your teas, we love the amped up antioxidant and perk me up results from the The Republic of Tea - Pomegranate Green tea. The marriage of Pomegranate and Green tea is perfect for increasing alertness by naturally stimulating your body with a low dose of caffeine from the organic green tea and high does of antioxidants from both the pom and green tea combined. A perfect tea for after lunch to prevent the 3pm energy crash. So they say beauty is skin deep, right? Well the energizing benefits of Pomegranate don’t just stop with nutrition for your insides. You can give your winter bashed skin the wake up it needs with the application of Mountain Rose Herbs Pomegranate Seed Oil for face. The light weight and deeply penetrating oil contains punicic acid, which protects your skin from hydration loss, UV and free radical damage. Application pomegranate seed oil uncovers a brighter, more even skin tone as it locks your natural moisture in! Well there you have it! Get “Pomenantly” out of winter mode.
