Indeed, this beautiful fruit has been celebrated for its medicinal powers for centuries. It is considered to be the most powerful anti-oxidant of all fruits. It is amazing in its entirety: the peel is thought to be good for the heart, the white membrane is good for stopping diarrhea and the almighty seeds strengthen the brain, help cleanse the body from toxins, have immune-supporting effects, lower LDL cholesterol and regulate blood pressure. A "cure-all", it can help with stomach upsets, menopausal hot flashes, warding off the flu and reducing inflammation. It is thought to even have potent anti-cancer properties.
The pomegranate is also the ultimate fruit for beautiful skin. A rich source of rare omega-5, it is known to improve skin tone and elasticity, while helping us look young.
The pomegranate is a refreshing fall treat. You can snack on it on its own or you can sprinkle it on your morning oatmeal or yogurt. It is delicious on salads and of course, blending or juicing the seeds is a great option too. This is one fruit we must absolutely make sure to include in our diet.
