Pomegranate

In the last couple of years, the pomegranate has been all the rage…with this new juice appearing on the shelves. This seasonly available fruit is renowned for its nutritional properties. Studies show that the juice from this fruit is one of the most powerful antioxidants, which contains a very high level of polyphenols and other free radical-fighting agents.

Some nutritional benefits are:

The fruit can help with:

  • Arteriosclerosis
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes

In 2006 the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry published a study which showed that “the polyphenolics in the fruit can play an important role in the modulation of inflammatory cell signaling in colon cancer cells.”

Have you ever wanted to know how to peel a pomengranate? I found this video on You Tube and tried it out myself. This a very good technique, although I still have difficulty with the pomengranate. I think it is a difficult fruit to easily enjoy, like the simple banana.

I was just wondering how much of pomgrantes can a person eat per day and how can they help a diabetic or a heart patient. I have been looking for info on the pomgrante but I can find any reading about it. Can you help me with it? We really love pomgrante. I just can’t get enough of them. Thank you

Tina,
This is a great question! Because pomegranate is a nature-made food, you really only need the equivalent of one pomegranate a day to get the benefits, but you can certainly eat several a day if you are prone to illness, exercise a lot, have a heart condition that you are trying to support, or if you simply like the taste and how they make you feel. The best method is to try different amounts and adjust as your body signals you. Pomegranates are one of the most heavily researched superfruits available – just google “pomegranate heart health [or diabetes]” and you’ll find a staggering amount of studies. We have a short list of some of these benefits on our website as well that you may find interesting: http://www.navitasnaturals.com/products/pomegranate.html
