The review of 194 studies showed that the health benefits of pomegranate are immense and they are healthier than any other fruit.
The superfruit was found to fight Type 2 diabetes, bowel and prostate cancers and improves athletic performance.
The researchers at the Oxford looked at clinical trials for a year. The findings of the research have ignited interest in the effect of super fruits, especially pomegranates, reported the Daily Express.
The bio-medical researcher with consultancy Click Tell, Sepe Sehati said that while looking at the time and effort invested in studies across the world, it can be established that pomegranate is the main focus more than any fruit.
“The accepted wisdom is that a super fruit is not a cure-all, but fruits can have beneficial health effects and pomegranate is an ancient fruit and have been thought to have health-giving properties for millennia,” Sehati added.
The study was concluded after it suggested that the superfruit debate was not over. Besides being rich in nutrition, pomegranate is also rich in antioxidants and photochemicals. It is considered as one of the most powerful, nutrient dense foods for overall good health.
