    Sun Protection

    Pomegranate can be used to counter the effects of harsh rays of the sun. The fruit protects the skin against free radical damage and prevents complications related to sun damage, including skin cancer. Owing to the presence of ellagic acid, a polyphenol antioxidant found in large quantities in pomegranates, the growth of skin tumours is inhibited. (Image source:Gettyimages)
