What Are Some of the Health Benefits
Pomegranates are a superfood. They have a list of ways they benefit your body. They are a good source of fiber. This results in regularity because the fiber in pomegranates helps encourage the healthy passing of waste. They are also very high in vitamin C. Vitamin C has been known to encourage the fighting of various diseases, most notably the viruses that like to try to take us away from work, school, and social engagements. They say, "an apple a day keeps the doctor away," but a pomegranate may be even better. A pomegranate is also packed with potassium. While bananas are known for their potassium properties, pomegranates are a lesser-known but nonetheless significant source of this important element.
Are They High in Calories?
Not at all. Pomegranates are not a high-calorie food. They consist of small seeds with juicy, rich meat wrapped around them. Much of the volume from pomegranates is typically not eaten, making them low in calories. Also, their natural sugar is subtle, not overpowering, and the lower concentration of sugar also results in fewer calories overall.
A Great Source of Antioxidant Power
Antioxidants should be a part of everyone's diet. They are needed in order to naturally do away with the toxins that pollute our bodies and cause various complications, not the least of which being cancer. Antioxidants in pomegranates help rid the body of poisons that would otherwise create an environment-friendly to carcinogens and other elements that negatively impact our health. As they do their work, they make the entire body an environment that's hostile to invasion from the microorganisms that can do us so much harm. Further, pomegranate can also be dried and still do its job.
