The pomegranate has a rich history dating back almost to the beginning of time. Pomegranates were known as divine fruits and some even believe that it could have been the fruit of the Garden of Eden because of its many references throughout the Bible.
New evidence on the pomegranate suggests you should drink up! Forget green tea or red wine, pomegranate juice has three times the antioxidants needed for good health. Now the pomegranate is widely known in the food industry as a "superfruit," along with the blueberry, the cranberry. Besides the antioxidant power which supplies bodies with defense against free radicals which can cause degenerative illness and advanced aging, pomegranate juice has been linked to lowering bad cholesterol as well as a variety of heart-healthy benefits. Along with protecting the state of your arteries, pomegranates can also help fight Alzheimer's disease by increasing brain function and some studies say it may prevent skin cancer as well as destroy prostate and breast cancer cells.
