I love fruits as they are the sweetest gifts from Mother Nature to we human beings. There are lots of fruits available in market now a days and one such fruits is Pomegranate which is very beneficial when it comes to its various beauty benefits.
As per Google Pomegranate is a berry from the tree Punica granatum and all parts of the pomegranate plant has medicinal properties – the flower, leaves, fruit, oil, rind, bark, root and the juice. The therapeutic properties of pomegranates is because of a number of phytochemicals which include the ellagic acid, punicic acid (a polyunsaturated fatty acid), flavonoids, anthocyanidins, ellagitannins, anthocyanins as well as estrogenic flavones and flavonols. Pomegranate juice has been rated as having a better antioxidant (substances which protect the cells against the harmful free radicals in the body) level compared to green tea or red wine with an ORAC (antioxidant capacity) of 2,860 units per 100g. It is also rich in nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), potassium, polyphenols and fiber.
Research has shown that the punicic acid present in pomegranate seed oil prevents diet-induced obesity and insulin resistance, which is not dependent on dietary changes or the energy utilization of the body. Evidently, it also effectively reduces cholesterol besides having a favorable effect on lipid profile.The powerful anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties of pomegranate have been used by the beauty and cosmetic industry in the form of the pomegranate oil from the pomegranate seeds. This oil has miraculous healing properties.
