areflect Pomegranate

Pomegranate seeds get their vibrant red hue from Polyphenols. These chemicals are powerful antioxidants.

It contains higher levels of antioxidants than most other fruit juices. It also has three times more antioxidants than red wine and green tea.

The antioxidants in juice can help remove free radicals, protect cells from damage, and reduce inflammation.

The juice of a single pomegranate has more than 40 percent of your daily requirement of vitamin C.

Vitamin C can be broken down when pasteurized, so opt for homemade or fresh juice to get the most of the nutrient.

Pomegranate juice recently made a splash when researchers found that it may help stop the growth of prostate cancer cells.
