Alternative medicine has been offering us a very effective solution for decades now, and this solution can simply be found in our very own pantry. Find out which fruit are we talking about
Pomegranate is rich in vitamins C, E, A, B5, as well as in minerals such as potassium and iron. It also has 92% of antioxidant effect and thus it has the ability to eliminate all toxins accumulated in one’s body by boosting one’s metabolism. This amazing fruit contains 15 g of sugar and it has a very pleasant and slightly tangy taste.
Pomegranate originates from the area spreading from Iran to North India, from where the Hellenes, Greeks, brought it to the Mediterranean. An interesting fact is that the city of Granada, located in Andalusia, Spain, was actually named after this fruit.
Besides its ability to prevent obesity, this fruit also has a great role in defending one’s organism from cardiovascular diseases by preventing atherosclerosis.
The regular consumption of pomegranate juice for a year, can reduce the blood pressure for about 21% and significantly increase the blood flow to the heart.
With the passing of time, your arteries accumulate oxidative fats and immune cells on their inner walls that can lead to their clogging. If the arteries become thicker, there will be less space for the blood to flow through and the resulting blockage will restrict blood flow to the heart. When the blood flow is completely cut off, the result is a heart attack, which can lead to death.
In addition, the oil of pomegranate seeds and pomegranate juice help to prevent the formation and development of tumor cells, especially breast cancer and prostate cancer. Men are strongly recommended to consume a ¼ liter of pomegranate juice a day. Furthermore, pomegranates produce phytoestrogens, plant-based hormones that can protect against some hormone-dependent cancers such as ovarian cancer.
Austrian prof. Hademar Bankhofer highlights the importance of regular consumption of 1 pomegranate a day during the menopausal period. This is so because pomegranates contain estrogen-like plant substances and thus greatly influence the hormone levels.
