Benefits of Pomegranate Juice

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.
