One of the oldest cultivated fruits, pomegranates first grew in ancient Persia and the health benefits of pomegranate were recognized even then. The Romans gave it its name — "pomegranate" literally means "seed apple" in Latin — and planted the sturdy seedlings throughout their empire. Spain so loved pomegranates that they named the city of Granada after them, according to some historians. The fruit also made its way eastward to India, where its juice was considered a health elixir that cured any number of ills.
Pomegranates are the size of large oranges, with reddish-pink leathery skin protecting a white membrane. Attached to this membrane are small seed sacs surrounded by a red pulp. Recent studies reveal that eating pomegranate fruit can contribute immensely to good health.
Raw Pomegranate is mostly known for its rich content of antioxidants such as soluble polyphenols, tannins and anthocyanins which scavenge free radicals. Antioxidants are now considered essential for good health as they protect the body from molecules which cause premature aging and help prevent DNA damage that can lead to a number of serious health conditions. Pomegranate also contains a significant amount of good sodium, calcium, vitamin C, niacin, thiamin and riboflavin. Preliminary evidence suggests that pomegranate is very heart healthy and may reduce cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, slow down LDL cholesterol oxidation and increase blood flow to the heart.
Pomegranates are jam packed with vitamins that are important to daily bodily functions, but the most important health benefits of pomegranates are antioxidants. Pomegranates contain three times as many antioxidants as red wine and green tea.
