This is the last chapter of 10 herbs from Graeco-Arabic Medicine series.

 

   

What is pomegranate?

   

A pomegranate is among the healthiest fruits on Earth and is one of my personal favorites. Various parts of a pomegranate tree can be used to make medicine.

   

         

    

What is pomegranate used for?

   

Pomegranate is used for chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), hear conditions, high blood pressure, and recovery after exercise. It contains a range of beneficial plant compounds, unrivaled by other foods. 

   

Does pomegranate work?

   

As a medicine, pomegranate is currently only proved to be effective for lowering high blood pressure. However, because of the important nutrients it contains, pomegranate has impressive anti-inflammatory effects, and may even help fight prostate cancer.

   

   

   

How do you take pomegranate?

   

Of course we take pomegranate by mouth. Some people also apply the extract to skin.

   

What are the side effects?

   

Pomegranate juice is likely safe for most people when taken by mouth.

When pomegranate extract is applied to skin, some people may experience sensitivity including itching, swelling, runny nose, and difficulty breathing.

   

Do not take other parts of a pomegranate tree by mouth except the fruit, because the root, stem and peel contain poisons.

Thanks you for sharing this. My dad has high blood pressure, he hates celery juice, bitter melon juice, it seems all foods good for blood pressure are unsavory. Pomegranate is good, it's sweet.
Glad I could help. Best wishes to you and your family.
I know this! 100% pomegranate juice is really tasty, at least better than 100% cranberry juice. Plus it's good for you.
Congras! You have a health diet
Lucky!!! I have no allergic reaction of the pomegranate and I love drinking pomegranate juice. Maybe this is why I am always in good health.
A cup of pomegranate juice a day keeps the doctors away XD
I like pomegranate and the juice. Can I make the juice at home? If I can how to do that?
Hey. You need to remove the seeds of a pomegranate, put them into your blender and pour the mixture through a strainer before drinking. It's a little bit complex to remove the seeds, but guess you are a DIY person.
