A great antioxidant
The human body generates free radicals daily, which are reactive molecules necessary for cellular life, but also have negative effects on them. Pomegranate is a fruit rich in antioxidants due to its supply of anthocyanins, punicalagins and vitamin C, which protects healthy cells from the inevitable damage caused by oxidative stress.
Inflammatory responses in the body can pose a serious health problem, especially when they become chronic or persistent inflammation. Arthritis and diabetes are some of the most well-known related diseases, and several studies have already associated the polyphenols and flavonoids that can be found in pomegranate juice as great health allies in inflammatory processes.
The mitigation of oxidative stress thanks to the antioxidants in pomegranate also benefits cardiovascular health, reducing the risk of coronary heart disease by improving blood circulation and lowering blood pressure.
The consumption of pomegranate juice provides cognitive benefits, and its antioxidant effects also have a positive impact on the reduction of oxidative stress in brain tissue, and its most significant manifestation is the improvement of memory as well as the delay of its loss.
