Amazing benefits of Pomegranates

Pomegranate is a fruit full of antioxidants and found that the seeds have a number of health benefits, from lowering cholesterol to fight against arthritis.

 

“Pomegranates are known for their high polyphenol content,” said Marisa Moore of the Academy of Nutrition and Diet. In addition, he assured that the fruit offers a good source of potassium and vitamin C. Here we will give you more benefits of this delicious fruit:

 

The red pomegranate stimulates your immune system
Scientists recommend drinking pomegranate juice because it effectively concentrates the beneficial nutrients in pomegranate seeds. “The antioxidant activity of pomegranate juice can be three times higher than that of green tea and red wine,” explained Moore of the University of California.

Pomegranates contain three types of antioxidants: tannins (which have made healthy red wine famous), anthocyanins and ellagic acid. Antioxidants are important to keep cells in our bodies healthy and able to fight against viruses, decreasing inflammation and preventing organ damage.

Keep blood pressure low
Think of them as a relief from stress in edible form. Besides we already know that we are taking advantage of the power of their antioxidants, pomegranates have been shown to improve systolic blood pressure. According to a study conducted at the Research Lipid Research Laboratory in the Medical Sciences in Israel, the grenades ensure that the arteries are free of plaque.

Goodbye cholesterol!
Another study by the Lipid Research Laboratory analyzed many effects of pomegranates on cardiovascular health, which led to a decrease in cholesterol levels. Once again, we have antioxidant polyphenols to thank for this.

Fight inflammation
Antioxidants also work wonders on inflammation throughout the body, even in the most painful cases of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Studies have shown that pomegranate extract not only reduces inflammation, but also helps relieve pain and even fights cartilage degradation.

They inhibit cancer
Studies show that pomegranate juice inhibits the growth of cancer cells and even gives those cells an extra push to keep going and die (a process called apoptosis). A study from the University of Southern Taiwan Science and Technology, showed that pomegranate juice prevented the proliferation of a particular prostate cancer cell, while a previous study from the University of Florida Atlantic found similar results with respect to the breast cancer cells.
