Wouldn’t it be marvellous if there was a drink which could work wonders for your hair, skin and health? Pomegranates are the miracle fruit which, when juiced, have an excellent taste and have a large number of benefits on your health, hair and skin!
For vibrant, younger looking skin, drinking even one glass of pomegranate juice a day can help alleviate lots of age-related complaints. The life of fibroblasts, which enable the production of collagen and elastin in the body, is increased by pomegranate juice, therefore tightening your skin. The fruit can also aid in the healing of scars, reducing other signs of ageing, and keeping skin cancer away.
Drinking pomegranate juice isn’t the only way to reap the benefits of this fruit. Mix 2 teaspoons of pomegranate juice with a teaspoon of powdered green papaya, grape seed extract and grape seed oil to make a face mask which will make your skin glow.
Pomegranate juice can also give you strong, shiny hair! Drink a glass of pomegranate juice daily to increase the strength of individual hair follicles, helping prevent hair loss problems whilst increasing thickness.
To control dry and frizzy hair, a warm pomegranate oil treatment will moisturise and calm your locks.
Pregnant women have long used pomegranate juice to aid with a healthy blood flow and foetus development, but there are drastic health benefits for those who are not pregnant too. As well as being good for your heart, pomegranate acts as a natural aspirin to prevent coagulation and clotting of blood cells.
Pomegranate also increases your level of immunity and even has the ability to control HIV transmission, and is the only fruit able to do so!
With all these perks, it’s not surprising that the pomegranate is called the lucky fruit by the Chinese and thought to be responsible for eternal life in Ancient Egyptian times. Nowadays, pomegranate can be recognised as being filled with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which bring a wide variety of health and beauty benefits to people around the world.
