Pomegranate? It sounds so last year! But then, it is still the fruit that has shown again and again to have promising abilities! Let’s not forget what has been discovered already:
Some Biblical theorists have suggested that it was not an apple Eve offered to Adam in the Garden of Eden, but a pomegranate! In many cultures, the pomegranate is a symbol of fertility. If the population of the world today is any kind of indication of the fertility power of the pomegranate, this theory could very well be true!
Legends have made the pomegranate a mystical fruit with magical but untold powers. Many members may not have noticed that The British Medical Association and three royal colleges, the Royal College of Midwives, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the Royal College of Physicians, all feature the pomegranate in their crests.
It is no wonder, therefore, that the power of the pomegranate has finally caught the attention of modern scientists. Various studies have been done on it from all over the world. It has been commonly recognized that pomegranate fruit and juice are packed with antioxidants—the agents the body uses to protect itself against cell damage. Good natural sources of antioxidants include red wine, tomatoes, green tea, and blueberries, but now scientists believe that pomegranates, which are a rich source of antioxidant compound called polyphenols, could be even better. Researchers have pinpointed a few direct benefits of pomegranate intake.
