POMEGRANATES - Health Benefits.

Researchers are discovering the truth surrounding the pomegranate’s powers, proving why this exotic fruit has claimed such a fabled place in cultures throughout the ages.
First, organic pomegranates are full of antioxidants. These are vitamins and enzymes known for keeping low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or “bad” cholesterol from oxidizing and causing anthefosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. Organic pomegranate seeds act a lot like aspirin, keeping blood platelets from sticking together and forming dangerous blood clots.
Antioxidants also buffer the effects of free radical damage to your cells caused by oxidation. Free radicals  are produced by functions within the body and elements outside the body, such as radiation from the sun. You can’t stop free radical occurrence and oxidation but you can consume foods that help neutralize their potential damage.
Research also shows that eating organic pomegranate seeds and drinking pomegranate juice can increase oxygen levels to the heart.
Other studies reveal that, over time, organic pomegranates might help combat erectile dysfunction. This super fruit might also reduce the inflammation of arthritis by slowing down the enzymes that break down cartilage.

To get the most out of an organic pomegranate, eat the seeds while they’re at their freshest and juiciest, and at the peak of their medicinal powers.
Most of the beneficial fiber comes from the seed so it is beneficial to eat it. 
Pomegranates are one of the few fruits whose juice is just as beneficial as its fruit or seeds. The peel, which you can’t eat, contains the most antioxidants, and they are released in abundance when the fruit is squeezed for juicing.
1.  Lower Risk of Heart Disease.
2.  Lower Risk of Cancer, Especially Prostate and Breast.
3.  Lessen Symptoms of Diarrhea.
4.  Reduce Cholesterol.
5.  Control Your Weight.
6.  Fight Cell Damage.
7.  Regulate your blood pressure, thus helps to lower your high blood pressure.
