Pomegranate juice contains three times as many antioxidants as red wine and green tea
The fruit also made its way eastward to India, where its juice was considered a health elixir that nourished the human body. 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 natural antioxidants such as soluble polyphenols, tannins, and anthocyanins which support the body’s ability to destroy free radicals. Antioxidants are now considered essential for good health as they may protect the body from molecules which may 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 support overall cardiovascular health.
