Pomegranate health Benefits

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.
