Pomegranates Contain Two Plant Compounds With Powerful Medicinal Properties

A Single Pomegranate

There are two unique substances in pomegranates that are responsible for most of their health benefits.

Punicalagins

Punicalagins are extremely powerful antioxidants found in the juice and peel of a pomegranate.

They are so powerful that pomegranate juice has been found to have three times the antioxidant activity of red wine and green tea .

Pomegranate extract and powder is typically made from the peel, due to its high antioxidant and punicalagin content.

Punicic Acid

Punicic acid, also known as pomegranate seed oil, is the main fatty acid in the arils.

It is a type of conjugated linoleic acid with potent biological effects.

 

Vitamin K

Pomegranates benefit your health due to their vitamin content, and they provide a source of vitamin K. Getting enough vitamin K supports an active lifestyle, because it plays a role in bone mineralization — a physiological process that maintains healthy bone density — and helps you heal after an injury. It also activates factors involved in blood clotting, protecting you against uncontrolled bleeding, which can prove life-threatening. A 1-cup serving of pomegranate contains 28.5 micrograms of vitamin K. This makes up 23 percent of the daily vitamin K requirements for men or 32 percent for women, according to the Institute of Medicine.

Fiber

Pomegranate makes a satisfying addition to your diet because it provides dietary fiber. Fiber doesn’t contain any calories, but it adds bulk to your food, so you’re more likely to feel full after a fiber-rich meal than one lacking in fiber. Each cup of pomegranate arils provides 11.3 grams of dietary fiber — approximately 30 percent of the recommended fiber intake for men or 45 percent for women, according to Colorado State University. Fiber also helps lower your cholesterol, reducing your risk of coronary heart disease, and also prevents digestive disorders, such as diverticular disease.

Vitamin C

Pomegranate benefits your circulation and promotes healthy hair because of its vitamin C content. Your blood vessel walls and hair both contain collagen, and vitamin C helps you produce enough new collagen to keep these tissues strong. Low vitamin C levels can cause your hair to fall out and also increase your risk of rupturing a blood vessel. A cup of pomegranate provides approximately 24 percent of the vitamin C requirements for women or 20 percent for men, according to the Institute of Medicine.

Disadvantage

Pomegranates contain more calories per serving than several other fruits. Each 1-cup serving of pomegranate boosts your caloric intake by 144 calories, compared to 62 calories in an equivalent serving of blackberries, 87 calories in cherries or 52 calories in sliced apples. While pomegranate still provides a lower-calorie alternative to processed snacks or junk food, selecting other fruits over pomegranate might be beneficial if your goal is weight loss.

Nutrition Value Of  Pomegranates :

 

  • Fiber: 7 grams.
  • Protein: 3 grams.
  • Vitamin C: 30% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin K: 36% of the RDA.
  • Folate: 16% of the RDA.
  • Potassium: 12% of the RDA.

The pomegranate arils (seeds) are also very sweet, with one cup containing 24grams of sugar, and 144 calories.

However, where pomegranates really shine is in their content of powerful plant compounds, some of which have potent medicinal properties.
