Pomegranate

 

Pomegranate (Punica granatum): Recently acclaimed for its health benefits, pomegranate (known as the “jewel of winter”) may contain almost three times the antioxidant potential as green tea or red wine. It is rich in potassium, has vitamins A, C and niacin and is high in fiber. Pomegranate is rich in ellagic acid, a phytochemical that is much higher in pomegranate than in other fruits such as apples and pears. Other polyphenols is pomegranate include anthocyanins and punicalagin (a hydrolysable tannin found almost exclusively in pomegranate, it breaks down into ellagic acid). These are all very powerful antioxidants that clinical trials have shown can help maintain healthy blood vessels and healthy LDL cholesterol levels and support normal blood pressure levels. They may also help defend your body against cancer.
