The pomegranate ( Punica granatum L.) has a thick and inedible skin but inside there are hundreds of edible seeds, called arils.
We transform the arils into juice which maintains the high content of antioxidants, a value that has always been recognized to this fruit.The antioxidant effects can prevent cell damaging which may contribute to serious diseases. It is reported that pomegranate has several health benefits due to the presence of various tannins, flavonoids, alkaloids and organic acids. The best known is the ellagic acid which is present at particularly high levels in the pomegranate juice. The reproductive system also benefits from the pomegranate which helps with menstrual pain, menopause and prostate. It is no coincidence that pomegranate is also known to be the fruit of life and has long been considered a symbol of fertility for its powerful health benefits.
