Exotic and delicious, pomegranates have really grown in popularity. While many people are eating the fruit because of their striking colour, there are also many who are eating them because of their wellness properties. Here we discuss some of the benefits that are said to come with eating pomegranates:
- Lowers dental plaque
- Calms stomach disorders
- Helps overcome depression
- Reduces the risk of developing cancer
- Lowers risk of heart attacks and strokes
- Relieves symptoms of anaemia
Because of their pips, pomegranates are a tricky addition to smoothies (you need quite a strong blender to get them completely smooth!), but you can add them to most meals to get those nutritional benefits. Sprinkle them in salads, mix through cous cous, and add to fruit salads.
