One of the oldest cultivated fruits, Pomegranate juice contains three times as many antioxidants as red wine and green tea.
Pomegranate is high in natural antioxidants such as soluble polyphenols, tannins and anthocyanins which support the body’s ability to destroy free radicals.
Pomegranate powder is particularly high in vitamins C and K; vitamin C protects the eyes and helps us heal faster, while vitamin K maintains healthy blood clotting and supports strong bones. Pomegranates are also a good source of protective minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorous.
Pomegranate powder contains a significant amount of good sodium, calcium, niacin, thiamin and riboflavin. Preliminary evidence suggests that pomegranate is very heart healthy and may support overall cardiovascular health.
The pomegranate tops the charts as one of the most powerful superfoods because of a unique combination of strong antioxidants in the form of phenols, tannins, and anthocyanins. These cancer fighting substances work together to combat free radicals and protect the body form cell damage.
One of the antioxidant compounds found in pomegranate is ellagic acid. Ellagic acid is powerful, showing anti-carcinogenic and anti mutagenic properties by inhibiting growth of existing cancer cells and prevented the growth of new cancerous cells in those who may be predisposed to the disease.
Research has also shown that nutrient-rich pomegranate are good for the heart, by regulating blood pressure, increasing blood flow to the heart, preventing hardening of the arteries, and reducing cholesterol buildup. It is also an anti-inflammatory agent.
