Pomegranate can be integrated into the diet in various ways offering many important benefits. But how does it affect our health?
Protects against free radicals and inflammation
It contains three different forms of antioxidants (tannins, anthocyanins, ellagic acid) and the total antioxidant activity is 2-3 times greater than that of green tea or red wine. Thus, it is one of the most important natural weapons against free radicals and inflammation.
Pomegranate is rich in vitamins (A, C, E, folic acid), iron, potassium and fiber, while it has a low calorie content (82 calories per 100 grams) and high water content (81%).
Stimulates the immune system
Thanks to its high content of vitamin C and other nutrients that strengthen the immune system (such as vitamin E) it can help prevent infections and speed up healing from the common cold.
Protects heart health
Pomegranate lowers high blood pressure, which increases the chances of a heart attack. At the same time, it prevents the oxidation of "bad" cholesterol (LDL), which is a serious risk factor for cardiovascular disease, and has been shown to reduce total and "bad" cholesterol levels in diabetic patients with hyperlipidemia.
Fights skin aging
Vitamins, folic acid and potassium found in pomegranate, are essential substances for maintaining a fresh skin. At the same time, its extremely high content of polyphenols, fights premature aging. Pomegranate extract has astringent properties, tightens pores and is effective in removing excess fat from the skin.
