The fact that pomegranate juice is healthy isn’t exactly new. Indeed, pomegranates were known as the fruit of resurrection in ancient Babylon.
Pomegranate is an unusual, seedy fruit with a tart, yet sweet taste, which, admittedly, can take some getting used to. But it’s worth persevering with pomegranate because a glass of its juice can provide you with more heart-healthy antioxidants than any other juice. It even contains more artery-cleansing antioxidents than red wine.
Recent studies have shown that pomegranate juice can provide other benefits, too, such as helping cancer prevention and relief of menopausal and osteoarthritis symptoms. In addition to healthy levels of folic acid, just a single pomegranate can provide an adult with 40% of daily vitamin C requirements.
Not all pomegranate juice is created equal, however. Only buy juice that is 100% pomegranate juice. “Cocktail” or pomegranate juice mixed with others types of juices will not provide you with the same benefits.
