4 Pomegranate Benefits to Boost Your Wellbeing

By Neka Pasquale, Founder of Urban Remedy

One of my favorite things about the Fall season is I get to eat (and drink) my all-time favorite super-fruit, the beautiful pomegranate! Because of the short-lived seasonality, I sometimes find myself eating two to three of these gems per day.

When I open my ruby red pom, it reveals a dense collection of sweet, tart seeds nestled among spongy pulp. The juice pops in your mouth and is worth the red stain (caution do not wear white while eating). Not only are these fun to eat and are a perfect colorful addition to a salad (like our Autumn Salad, a seasonal favorite) or sprinkles over roasted veggies but Pomegranates contain amazing health benefits!

Potent Antioxidant

Pomegranate juice is high in potent antioxidants called punicalagins. These antioxidants have three times the antioxidant activity of red wine and green tea. They fight free radicals which protect cells from damage, and lower inflammation. By lowering inflammation in the body, it can help inflammatory issues like chronic pain, arthritis, IBS, and other inflammatory diseases.

Pomegranates May Improve Brain Health

Along with being absolutely delicious, pomegranates may actually improve brain health. This could be due to the fruit being rich in antioxidants which can help with blood flow to the brain.

Rich in Vitamin C

The juice of a one pomegranate has more than 40% of your daily requirement. It also contains other immune boosters like vitamin E, folate and potassium, and vitamin K.

Antibacterial and Antiviral

Pomegranates have also been shown to be antibacterial and antiviral in lab tests. As such, they are even being studied for common infections and viruses.

Pomegranate benefits extend far beyond their bright, sweet, tart flavor. This Fall and Winter, take advantage of this super-fruit by drinking the sweet tart juice, eating the seeds on their own, or adding to your favorite dish!
