POMEGRANATE AS YOUTH ELIXIR


POMEGRANATE AS YOUTH ELIXIR


I love everything about this season: colors, perfumes, and even temperature.
The multicolor leaves are the most obvious sign of the seasonal transition. I love seeing leaves falling out in parks and in the countryside around London. They create incredible landscapes, but autumn is not only that. During fall there are also lots of really good harvested produces.

Powerful Health Benefits of the Pomegranate 


The pomegranate is one of the most powerful healthy fruit on the earth. Some people are not very familiar with this fruit; others cannot give up with its delicacy. I appreciate the pomegranate juice that is available year round in most groceries and bio shops.
The pomegranate is a nutrient dense food and many studies have shown that they have incredible benefits for your body.
COMPOSITION:
-       78% of water, 1,6% of fats, 1,7% of proteins, 4% fibers, 13, 8% of sugar, 0,9% of ashes;
Mineral salts:
-       potassium, manganese, zinc, copper, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, sodium, calcium and selenium;
Vitamins:
-       B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, K and J.
As you can guess the pomegranate an almost complete fruit. It contains many essential elements and there is no doubt it is a powerful natural nutritional supplement.
My advice is always to take it on an empty stomach, between lunch and dinner. Remember not to exaggerate, because, if consumed in excess, the pomegranate has its negative side effects.
If you want to enjoy the health benefits outlined in this article, then you can either eat the pomegranate grains directly, or drink pomegranate juice.
Many argue that the pomegranate could also be an ultimate anti-cancer fruit. Consumption of the pomegranate, which contains the elegiac acid, may retard cancer or cancer in progression (especially the prostate cancer), according to some studies. Actually, the most secure thing is that this fruit contains a very high number of antioxidants, vitamins, mineral salts and much more, that can improve one’s health.
Finally, even the color of this fruit, the bloody-red, suggests that this fruit is a bioactive plant, full of many compounds!
