Pomegranate fruit health benefits

Punica granatum L., the pomegranate tree is an important commercial fruit in Saudi Arabia, the United States and many Mediterranean countries.

Pomegranate fruit has long been esteemed as food and medicine, and is a diet in convalescence after diarrhea. Pomegranate seeds are bursting with nutrients, this due to large part of particularly potent antioxidant polyphenols.

Pomegranate can help with skin care issues including age sport, dry skin, pigmentation, and acne break-outs. It also has compounds that protect the skin against free radical damage, helping to prevent skin cancer and reliving sunburn.

The fruit juice and extract also slow down the wear and tear of DNA, a major contributing factor to aging.

The phenol punicalgin is responsible for more than 50% of the juice’s potent antioxidant activity. It appears that pomegranate juice has higher levels of punicalgin because the rind is used in its production.
