The Red Effect
Pomegranates are not just good to taste; they are the season’s best bet for a healthy lifestyle. You might think the fruit is more trouble than it’s worth. Its spiny skin makes it difficult to retrieve the juicey parts and the red colour can stain your hands easily. But, the following benefits make all the effort well worth it:
More Potassium: Pomegranates are packed with antioxidants that protect one against dialysis-related infections, kidney diseases or cardiovascular complications such as high blood pressure.
Vitamin C: Pomegranate contains enough Vitamin C to account for nearly 40% of the daily recommended dosage. They lower blood pressure and also curb hunger thanks to the high level of fibre inside.
Healthy Teeth: The deliciously tangy juice of pomegranate protects against dental plaque. Antioxidants called polyphenols are the primary driver behind this antibacterial activity.
Cancer Protection: The juice prevents prostate cancer cells from moving while also weakening the chemical signals that promote this kind of cancer to spread in the first place. It destroys breast cancer cells too.
