An Anti-Aging Fruit
By Kristin Nash, BSN, R.N., Registered Nurse |
As everyone knows pomegranate is the new wonder fruit and has become a popular drink and supplement. Did you know it was written about as early as 1552 B.C in the Egyptian Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest medical documents ever recovered?
Pomegranate contains dateellagic acid, a potent antioxidant. Scavenging free radicals and increasing the body's own ability to provide antioxidant protection is just one of the features of pomegranate. Polyphenols, potent antioxidants contained in Pomegranate and green tea inhibit the formation of harmful enzymes that cause cells to grow out of control. Now found in cleansers, creams and serums, Pomegranate is proving to play a significant role in protecting the skin from environmental assaults.
