Pomegranate is a natural anti-inflammatory. Responsible for this is its high concentration of valuable plant substances.
It is full of vitamin C, vitamin B 5, and potassium: The pomegranate is one of the foods with the highest content of valuable plant substances that stop inflammatory processes in the body.
Its cell-protecting properties fight arthritis and heart disease as well as cancer. According to a US study, certain ingredients in pomegranates curb tumor growth. Extracts of the fruit have been used successfully, especially in hormone-related tumor types such as prostate and breast cancer. But the pomegranate not only has a healing effect but also has a disease-preventing effect: a glass of juice (250 milliliters) a day can effectively prevent breast cancer.
Opening Tips: Using pressure, roll the pomegranate on a hard surface until it cracks. Then you can better quarter the fruit with a sharp knife and squeeze out the seeds and juice.
