What is the benefit of pomegranate?

Did you know that pomegranate has a rich structure in terms of vitamin C, polyphenol, iron and potassium? One cup of pomegranate juice, which is also rich in vitamins B1 and B2, can meet 25% of the vitamin C we need daily. In addition, pomegranate, which is specified by experts to balance cholesterol and sugar, prevents cancer cells from developing and also helps in protecting heart health.

Especially in the winter, pomegranate, which can make the microbes and viruses harmless due to the antioxidants it contains, can play an important role in preventing diseases.
