Go the healthy way and drink Pomegranate all day!
In 3000 BC, the Egyptians buried their royalty with a ruby-red fruit in the hopes of a second life. Today, we know this ancient fruit as pomegranate. It may lack the glamour of a strawberry and the easy appeal of an apple a day, but the thick-skinned fruit is packed with healthy antioxidants. The Pharaohs were clearly onto something.
We agree it’s not an easy fruit to eat, and if you aren’t adept at it, you can make quite a mess of it. But don’t let that deter you – an alternative is to opt for a natural, zero-preservative, zero-sugar juice. With a juice, you can consume the same amount of goodness that you would be able to in fruit form.
From being used as tonic to heal ailments like ulcers and diarrhea to protecting you from heart diseases and certain cancers, the pomegranate is a great all-rounder.
Let’s count the pomegranate health benefits:
- Healthy heart
Pomegranate juice is currently one of the healthiest juices in the world and is known for its ability to act as a shield for the heart and the arteries. The juice improves blood flow and slows down the growth of plaque and build-up of cholesterol in the arteries.
- Fights cancer
Researchers have discovered that the fruit might curb or slow down the growth of prostate cancer cells. Another pomegranate benefit is that it contains a nutrient that suppresses aromatase, an enzyme that helps produce estrogen, which is linked to breast cancer.
- Boosts immunity
The fruit has antibacterial and antiviral properties and is great to ward off seasonal illnesses and infections. Rich in potassium, folate, Vitamins K, C and E, a glass of pomegranate juice will fight the good fight for your body.
- Improves endurance
Pomegranate juice may be the latest sports performance enhancer on the block. It is known to reduce soreness, improve strength, accelerate recovery and decrease damage caused by exercise. An all-in-one drink for the budding athlete and the go-to drink for a full-time one!
- Better digestion
The pomegranate benefits the body by reducing inflammation in the gut. The fruit is rich in fiber and B-complex vitamins – both great for digestive health. In addition, it improves the secretion of enzymes that accelerate digestion.
Pomegranate juice is one of the richest sources of anti-oxidants and has more of it than even wine and green tea. Antioxidants prevent the cell damage and inflammation caused by free radicals.
