Benefits of Pomegranate Juice

History of the Pomegranate

Before we go into the  Benefits of Pomegranate Juice  let's have a quick squiz at the history of the Pomegranate.

Pomegranate  (Punica granatum) is derived from the Latin name for "fruit of many seeds."

It has become quite a trendy fruit in the last year or so and is been used more and more in fine dining recipes and  venues.

King Midas reigned in the eighth century BC  in ancient Turkey and evidence was collected from his tomb in 1957 that  this fruit  with spiny tipped branches , bright scarlet flowers and reddish yellow fruit about the size of an orange has been around since the time of this ancient King.

You are going to be completely astonished when you read the long list of what ailments pomegranate juice can help either cure, or soothe the symptoms of, so we are just going jump straight in  and give you the list of these afflictions;

Pomegranate Juice for Erectile Dysfunction

The juice from the pomegranate seeds is believed to be a potent anti-oxidant, and supposedly even more so than red wine and even much more than green tea.

Drinking this juice, it is believed,  could also improve erectile function in men with mild to moderate ED.

Now we are going to get a little bit technical here when we say that it  protects nitric oxide (NO) in a continuing battle against oxidative stress which has an effect on certain biological systems  i.e. Erectile Dysfuncition.

Sounds a bit complicated,  so as always, we at Home Remedies Haven will simplifying this statement by saying that the nitty gritty of this is,  that long term use of this juice may help combat erectile dysfunction, backing up ancient aphrodisiac home remedy claims about this very tasty juice.  

This is not a scientific fact, but somehow the "ancient ones" knew things that we are only now busy would lose nothing by making this fruit part of your daily diet.

Pomegranate's and Arthritis

It has been reported that pomegranate juice which is ranked as a superfood can relieve inflammation in cartilage cells thereby  making it useful to arthritis sufferers.   There are studies underway to see if it can in fact help repair damaged cartilage.

Benefits of Pomegranate Juice for Sore throats, tapeworms and dysentery.

Another one of the benefits of pomegranate juice is it's astringent properties.    An astringent causes contraction of the tissue, arrest of secretion and control of bleeding.

So back to the simple stuff, the benefits of pomegranate juice here will be for cuts, tapeworms,  and dysentery.

It has long been used to help ease the distress of sore throats, because it is a broad spectrum antiseptic and also contains quite a few immune boosting compounds.

While you are drinking this juice, wipe some onto your fact, because its astringent compounds make it a good face wash for wrinkles.

Pomegranate Juice for Diarrhoea

The Pomegranate is often referred to as the Biblical Fruit and through the years has been used to treat diarrhoea  The seeds seem to help bind the bowels.

Benefits of Pomegranate Juice for Cancer

The values of anticarcinogenic compounds in the Pomegranat may prevent or delay prostate cance and reduce the risk of Breast Cancer. What is more,  is that the " seed oil has shown definite potential as a safe and effective chemo-preventive against skin cancer."
