Pomegranate: The healthiest fruit of them all!
An analysis of the glut of global interest in the “superfruit” found it fights Type 2 diabetes, bowel and prostate cancers and improves athletic performance, the Daily Express reported.
Bio-medical researcher with consultancy ClickTell, Sepe Sehati, said that when they look at the time and effort invested in studies worldwide, pomegranate is the main focus, adding in a year, 194 studies have been published, more than any other fruit.
Sehati added that it has evidence that fruit juices and extracts have an impact on wellbeing.
Sehati said that the accepted wisdom is that a superfruit is not a cure-all, but fruits can have beneficial health effects and pomegranates are an ancient fruit and have been thought to have health-giving properties for millennia.
Sehati concluded that the study after study confirms this suggests the superfruit debate is not over.
