Punicalagins are extremely potent antioxidants found in pomegranate juice and peel.

Pomegranates are rich in vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. The majority of that fiber is found in the white seeds hiding beneath the pockets of juice.

It contains 48 percent of the recommended daily vitamin C intake, important for a variety of health functions.

Eating pomegranate seeds can help strengthen the hair follicles. 

Powerful antioxidants in the fruit increase the activity of the good cholesterol. 

They have been found to cut the risk of prostate cancer.
