London: A new study has found that pomegranates can help you unclog your arteries by burning fat and increasing your blood flow.

According to the study, which was conducted at Barcelona's Catalan Institute for Cardiovascular Sciences, the "superfruit" contains antioxidants, called polyphenols, that keep arteries free of fat, the Daily Express reported.

Polyphenols also help arteries expand and contract to maintain blood flow and keep them from hardening, which is the leading cause of heart attacks.
