A pomegranate a day…

The pomegranate is rich in vitamins (A, C, E), folic acid, iron, potassium and fiber, while being low in calories. It is true that a pomegranate covers 40 % of the amount of vitamin C and 25% of folic acid that an adult needs daily. It is rich in three different forms of antioxidants (tannins, anthocyanins, ellagic acid) and its total antioxidant capacity is calculated to be 3.2 times greater than that of red wine and green tea. In a recent study, it was shown that pomegranate and berries of different varieties have stronger antioxidant action at cellular level, compared to 25 other fruits that were examined.
