The pomegranate has been a very popular part of the diet of many cultures for thousands of years, and scientists have recently begun to consider their possible health benefits other than those derived from vitamins and minerals that it contains. Some studies have shown that pomegranate juice contains almost three times more antioxidants found in products such as green tea and red wine. In addition, pomegranate contains a significant amount of important minerals such as potassium, important vitamins such as vitamin C and niacin, as well as a significant amount of fiber.

Pomegranate is used for medical purposes of Persia, Georgia, and India and has always been an important part of the diet in the Middle East. For its long history, pomegranate is associated with health, fertility, and reincarnation.

Because of its astringent, anti-parasitic properties, pomegranate is used to treat intestinal parasites.

In our time of nutritional enlightenment, pomegranate has become a superfood “par excellence”, mainly due to its antioxidant properties. Studies have shown that pomegranate and juice can help with heart disease, as they reduce blood clots and contain the damage done to the arteries of cholesterol.

Besides the excellent heart tonic, pomegranate also helps with other aging problems, because it is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, potassium, folic acid, and iron.

Today, pomegranate juice is available on most supermarket shelves. Pomegranate or molasses syrup (sour variety) is often used in dishes in the Middle East and Persian countries. Sweet variety is used in desserts or in cocktails, such as Grenadine. Pomegranate juice is quite expensive. However, if you live in places where it is widely available, you can make the juice yourself. Pomegranate seeds are tasty, sprinkled on your salad, or just have a bowl of seeds, lightly sprinkled with sugar and orange blossom essence, yummy!
