We’ve rounded up 7 compelling reasons why you should definitely add this wonderful fruit to your menu, and we also take a closer look at the benefits of freeze-dried powder.
- Pomegranate takes care of heart health
Regular consumption of pomegranate helps to keep blood pressure under control, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition, pomegranate’s rich antioxidant content prevents the formation of blood clots.
- Reduces inflammation levels
Pomegranate harbours powerful anti-inflammatory properties, accelerating the recovery from inflammatory processes, and is also effective for relieving chronic inflammation.
- Makes your skin glow
Pomegranate increases the production of collagen in the skin, which in turn improves its elasticity, making the skin smoother and more youthful. In addition, the antioxidants in pomegranate help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, keeping it healthy and radiant.
- Improves memory
According to several studies, regular consumption of pomegranate helps to improve both visual and verbal memory, which is also helpful in Alzheimer’s disease.
- Protects the body against infections
The plant compounds in pomegranate provide protection against harmful microorganisms, preventing infection. Pomegranate can help with yeast infections as well as oral and gum diseases.
- Helpful in case of anaemia
Pomegranate’s high vitamin C content makes the iron in the fruit easily absorbed by the body, making pomegranate a truly effective remedy for anaemia.
- Provides protection against cancer
The flavonoids in pomegranate are able to neutralise cancer-causing free radicals, thereby reducing the risk of developing the disease.
But why prefer freeze-dried pomegranate powder?
Pomegranate powder is made by freeze-drying, which means that all the benefits are retained in the powder. The freeze-drying process takes place at a very low temperature (below 42 degrees), which means that none of the vitamins are lost. What’s more, the nutrient-rich pomegranate in the form of powder is nutrient-dense, so you can forget the disappointment of a seemingly soggy pomegranate that is once again raw or rotten inside. You don’t have to worry about peeling and cleaning – it’s all done for you. So all you have to do is enjoy!
What delicious foods to make out of pomegranate powder?
Pomegranate powder is perfect for smoothies, porridge topping, desserts, refreshing juice drinks as well as raw cakes. Pomegranate powder also makes a delicious addition to frozen desserts. So if you’re a fan of banana ice cream or berry sorbets, give it a try!
Try, for example, this delicious pomegranate-raspberry sorbet!
