After extracting the delicious aryls, you normally throw out the pomegranate peels, right? You would never spend money to buy a 'peel powder' ...right? So did I, until I discovered their potential to help keep you healthy and happy.
During the late nineties scientists discovered the health benefits from the discarded part of this extremely beneficial fruit. So before you start tossing away what might be the best part of pomegranates, here are some key benefits to convince you otherwise.
4 Benefits of Pomegranate Peels
1. They’re a Great Tool to Fight Heart Diseases
Pomegranate peels are loaded with antioxidants. As their name might imply, antioxidants are extremely effective at eliminating oxidation from LDL cholesterol.
If your LDL cholesterol accumulates too much oxidization, it will eventually wreak havoc in your cardiovascular system, leaving you vulnerable to most heart diseases.
When it comes to antioxidants, I’ve felt that you can never get enough, especially if they come from a completely natural source.
2.They’re Packed with Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an integral part of a healthy holistic diet. Its health benefits cover a lot of areas in your health, ranging from improving your immune system, your cardiovascular system, preventing prenatal health complications, avoiding wrinkles, and reducing your chances of developing ocular diseases.
Pomegranate peels carry enough vitamin c to render vitamin pills or tablets obsolete. This is perfect because we’re trying to base our diet’s needs on completely natural sources.
3.They’re an Effective Form of Detox
Remember the plentiful antioxidants that could help your heart? Well, here’s where they shine again. Pomegranate peels pack enough antioxidants to make them the perfect natural detox you can get your hands on.
If you ever feel the need to detox, be it to keep it in shape or if you feel like you want to spoil yourself, pomegranate peels make the perfect detox tea.
