What Makes A Pomegranate So Darn Good For You?

To use its botanical name, the Punica granatum is fruit bearing deciduous shrub or small tree which produces the beautiful, nourishing red gems of juice that we all know as the Pomegranate seed. It has a very unique taste and is so quenching when you burst the delicious fruit within. The fruit is known as arils, and these are where you’ll find a plethora of antioxidants, as well as vast amounts of vitamin C and both soluble and insoluble fibre. In fact, a Pomegranate provides your body with Vitamin A, C, K, and B5 and other B vitamin complexes are available including pantothenic acid, folates and pyridoxine. You will also get Calcium, potassium, copper and manganese which will contribute to a healthy balanced diet.

Get some Pomegranate in your diet, they’re little gems!
