Pomegranate is one of my favorite fruits. The tangy sweet taste of the fruit makes it a refreshing fruit to eat by itself or added to a salad with Greek yogurt , as a juice or even as a topping on desserts.
Pomegranate is rich vitamin C. It is also a great source of folic acid, Potassium, vitamin K , vitamin B6 and omega-6fatty acids. It has a higher level of antioxidants than what is found in the much touted super foods like Green tea , red wine, cranberries, blueberries or oranges.
Consumption of pomegranates helps people with Alzheimer. The Vitamin B riboflavin, thiamine and niacin in the fruit actually helps in slowing down brain atrophy.
Wound healing is hastened due to its antimicrobial and antibiotic properties.
Eating pomegranates regularly reduces the risk of anemia. The presence of folic acid in pomegranates makes it an excellent food for expectant mothers.
The anti inflammatory properties of the fruit helps people with arthritis.
It is also found that eating the fruit regularly help fight cancer and slows down the growth of cancerous cells.
This fruit is said to have great hypertension reducing properties. Much research is being done in this area.
Pomegranate is a great fruit for heart health. It has anti-thrombotic properties which helps in fighting blood clots, hardening of arteries. It is also good for reducing the bad cholesterol and cleaning of plaque that forms in the veins and arteries.
Pomegranate is also said to improve Immunity.
Being an excellent source of antioxidants it is a great skin food. It helps reduces or prevent wrinkles and keeps your skin soft and supple.

Thank you Maria for taking the time to read and comment.
I too like it. It is a super fruit
Yes,Giri, It is Super food indeed.
I love pomegranate. Last year I put a few seeds in a pot. They sprouted but did not develop properly.
Here they just grow as volunteer plants.
Thank you tasartcraft, I love pomegranates.
Thanks for sharing the info. I didn’t know about so many healing effects.
I knew about some but when I researched for my article on Hubpages I discovered a lot more .
I love pomegranate, I have two trees of it.
Enjoy them and the good health you get from eating the fruits.
They are very healthy.
Hmm they are indeed. After two of my brothers had to undergo heart surgery I just put them on a diet of pomegranates and they have done pretty well in the last ten years.
Very useful information and such a powerful plant!
I though it was worth sharing the information here as well.
and to boot, they taste amazing! I love pomegranates!
That is right, I’d chose [pomegranate over apple any day.
apples probably first for me, but pomegranate is not native to most of the US so they are shipped and not as good.
Yeah we need to eat native fruits in season. That is sensible. Pomegranates grow abundantly here.
we get them twice a year (good) which is once more than we get good mangos (once a year).
sometimes it makes me miss Thailand.
Thank you for this info. I will be buying pomegranate juice.
I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for the visit and the comment.
And this fruit grows in us too, dear Dawn … I didn’t know it was so healthy
