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.
Fruit of Paradise
An Halal Food
Prophet Mohammed is said to have praised the pomegranate for its nutritional and spiritual values, and encouraged his followers to eat them as a means of purifying their bodies of envy and hatred.
The Arab Bedouins weddings prominently feature pomegranates—a ripe fruit is split open by the groom as he and his bride enter their home. Abundant arils ensure that the couple who eats it will have many children. Similar culture rituals have been around in Northern China for centuries.
Healing Power of Pomegranate
Anti-Inflammatory Power Force
Inflammation is the key cause and symptom of many fatal diseases such as heart disease, some types of cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and arthritis. Substances containing anti-inflammatories can have a positive impact on such diseases. This is why new discoveries keep coming out about Aspirin, one of the oldest drugs in modern medical science.
The pomegranate has strong anti-inflammatory power from its rich punicalagins chemical compound.
In traditional Chinese medicine, the pomegranate (especially liquid from the rubbery husk) is used to clear digestive tract infections and stomach worms grown due to poor hygiene.
Pomegranate for Men
The idea of pomegranate being good for futility is probably truer for men! A regular daily glass of pomegranate juice may boost such desire and strength. More importantly, men must worry about prostate health as this has become the leading cancer in many areas, including Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong. Some studies have shown the pomegranate can slow down cancer cell reproduction or even cause cancer cells to die.
The antioxidants in pomegranates may help improve blood flow and oxygenation which helps with erectile dysfunction.
More for Women
For women the main concern is breast cancer, which has become the leading cause of death. Lab research has shown promising effects when pomegranate extracts were used against cancerous cells in the breast. Of course, we are not suggesting that this is a cure, but it is a positive indication of the goodness of this fruit.
Pomegranate also has the proven benefit of slowing the aging of skin. Have you noticed that every major cosmetics line has pomegranate-infused skincare products at this point?
You can drink pomegranate juice for the same benefits!
