Pomegranates grow on a small tree. The flowers of this tree are white, bright red or orange and on the inside the pomegranate is filled with transparent reddish seeds, which are in small bags. Pomegranates contain a lot of potassium and vitamin C. They also contain more polyphenols than red wine and green tea. Polyphenols are powerful antioxidants.
The fruit will also receive all kinds of health benefits. Pomegranate has a positive effect on the skin because of collagen production. Collagen is the building block of our skin and the most important protein compound for smooth, firm skin. Pomegranate not only contains substances and enzymes that break down collagen, but also extend the lifespan of fibroblasts (cells that produce collagen and elastic proteins). Thanks to these substances, the skin can remain elastic and even.
The pomegranate is rich in fiber, vitamins, mineral and bioactive plant compounds, but also contains more fruit sugar.
