The Power of Pomegranates

Pomegranate is an exotic fruit rich containing an abundant source of antioxidants. These antioxidants include the powerful skin boosting nutrients anthocyanins and vitamin C. These nutrients are powerful protectors against cell damage and inflammation, thereby assisting in preventing skin discolouration and premature ageing. Vitamin C is essential for healthy collagen production and maintaining cell strength and integrity.  Fruits such as raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and grapes, as well as our faithful friend pomegranate contain a powerful cell protecting compound, Ellagic acid. Ellagic acid helps to prevent AGE formation in the skin (Advanced Glycation End Products) which are known to accelerate the ageing process in the body leading to conditions such as lines, wrinkles, stiffening of joints, poor brain function and eyesight deterioration. Another powerful compound that is found in Pomegranate is Gallic acid which helps to protect collagen from the advanced glycation end products. These Age’s form naturally as we age however, a poor diet high in processed sugar, alcohol, hydrogenated fats, burnt food, stress, excessive sun exposure and certain illness, such as diabetes, will accelerate the formation of these molecules that further intensify the ageing process.

So, how can you ensure you get your glow on this summer and incorporate pomegranate into your diet? Why not try adding pomegranate seeds to your salads or as a fruit component to yogurt.  There are also many pomegranate juices on the market that are worth checking out. Pomegranate juice has 50% greater antioxidant capacity than green tea making it a potent anti-ageing ingredient to ward off wrinkles.
