Disease prevention & pain relief
The high nutritional content in pomegranates gives numerous health benefits. The high-level of antioxidants in pomegranates have been shown to help prevent a variety of diseases and illnesses, including cardiovascular disease, cancer and high blood pressure. Pomegranates also make the list for natural arthritis treatments since they’re a source of antioxidants called flavonols, which act as anti-inflammatory agents in the body.
