Pomegranate has numerous health benefits.

Pomegranates include hundreds of tasty ruby-red arils with a sweet, tart flavor. They're also packed with heart-healthy nutrients, particularly antioxidants that help reduce inflammation. Pomegranate juice, in fact, contains three times the antioxidants found in red wine or green tea. According to several studies, the juice may help lower unhealthy LDL cholesterol and blood pressure.


However, as is the case with many fruits, it is recommended to consume the fruit whole (with fiber-rich seeds) rather than drinking juice. Pomegranate arils contain only 72 calories in a half-cup.

Between October and January, pomegranates are in season. Here's a simple method for extracting the seeds: Cut the pomegranate in half and score the rind four times on the outside of each half, just cutting through the rind. Over a broad, wide bowl, hold the sliced side of one half loosely in your palm, facing down. Smack the rind with a large spoon and the seeds should fall out into the bowl through your fingers. The seeds give a nice flash of color to any sort of salad (grain, green, or fruit), as well as cereal or yogurt.

What are the pomegranate's health benefits?

Pomegranates are high in antioxidants and flavonoids, both of which have been shown to protect cells from free radical damage. Pomegranates have been shown in certain trials to be useful at preventing prostate, breast, lung, and colon cancer.


What happens if we consume pomegranates on a daily basis?

Consuming pomegranates in their entirety may have anti-inflammatory properties and may help protect the body against numerous disorders such as type-2 diabetes and obesity.  Regular consumption of pomegranate aids in gut health, digestion, and the prevention of bowel illnesses.
