The pomegranate is one of the superfruits, called that way because of its many beneficial health properties. In particular, natural pomegranate juice is a true health supplement, especially because of its antioxidant power. In addition, its sweetness and unique taste make it a real delight.
The end of summer brings with it the presence of delicious seasonal fruits at the markets. Persimmon, custard apple, figs… but if there is one fruit that is representative of the beginning of autumn, it is the pomegranate.
It is in mid-September when the pomegranate starts to be collected, which has its best moment during the months of October to December. This thousand-year-old fruit has been known and valued, both for its flavour and its healing properties, since ancient times.
Nowadays the pomegranate is one of the most representative foods of the Mediterranean diet, together with olive oil, and its consumption is increasing every year, especially as a result of the latest research carried out on its juice and seeds.
These investigations have revealed that the pomegranate possesses a much higher quantity of antioxidants, than foods such as wine or tea.
Compared to the grape’s antioxidant capacity of 1238, natural pomegranate juice has more than double, 2681.
In other words, its ability to fight the free radicals that make the cells in our body become sick and older is greater than that which was considered the queen of antioxidants, the grape.
