When it comes to health, pomegranates are slam-packed with nutrients. While on the outside the fruit may resemble an apple, it’s the seeds inside which are actually the edible part of the fruit. These seeds are called arils and are what is specifically used to create pomegranate juice. Arils of the pomegranate are incredibly sweet and a great source of fiber, protein, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin K, folate, and potassium. However, for extracts and powders, the peel or skin is also used due to its vast antioxidant content.
In order to maintain our health, we need to protect our bodies from free radicals that are consistently trying to damage and mutate our cells. To do this, we need a powerful antioxidant – which is why pomegranates are so important. Pomegranates have been found to contain three times the antioxidants when compared to green tea and wine. This is more than enough to help seek out and destroy free radicals floating around in our bloodstream and potentially prevent us from getting sick.
VitaGranate pomegranate extract is also great for reducing inflammation in the body which can lead to many common chronic diseases. Pomegranate studies have shown that the natural antioxidant properties found in the fruit can reduce inflammation in the digestive tract – allowing it to function optimally and healthily.
To piggy-back on inflammation, when we train with intensity and heavy weights, our joints can very easily get banged up due to the stress and strain we put on them. And when you suffer from joint pain or arthritis, you aren’t able to push yourself in the gym as hard as you’d like, which could minimize your results. When you supplement with pomegranate extract, it can help decrease joint pain and even aid in reducing arthritis. Additionally, pomegranate extract could help give your workouts a boost by reducing fatigue and muscle soreness, as well as improving blood flow.
A common health risk that many people face without even knowing it due to a lack of symptoms is hypertension. This is also referred to as the “silent killer” and can bring the onset of a stroke or heart attack. VitaGranate pomegranate extract has the ability to lower blood pressure naturally without the use of prescription medication. And when it comes to heart health, pomegranates can significantly lower triglyceride levels as well as LDL cholesterol levels in the blood.
Throughout the day we come in contact with various people, shake hands, touch hundreds of objects, and don’t always immediately wash our hands (sometimes it’s not feasible). This could create the potential for bacterial and fungal infections. However, pomegranates contain plant compounds that have the ability to destroy many of the microorganisms that we come in contact with which can protect our health.
