For Immune system Pomegranate Antioxidant
By Veena Deo
This article talks about the benefits of Pomegranate as an antioxidant.
Our bodies are polluted by oxidants and free radicals every day due to both internal and external sources. Avoiding free radicals is not possible. However, antioxidants greatly help in preventing the damage caused by them. Antioxidant agents boost the immune system and repair cells that have been damaged by free radicals. In that way, antioxidants form a defense system in the body and promote good health.

Antioxidants, as the name suggests, neutralize the effects of oxidation, and therefore should be included in our daily health supplement plan. Vitamins A, C & E are the best antioxidants. These antioxidants are not produced by the body and therefore have to be ingested. Foods like green leafy vegetables contain antioxidant agents that act as good nutritional supplements.
The benefits of antioxidants can be obtained from supplements like Pomegranate without making changes in the diet habits. Regular antioxidant supplements can come in pill- or capsule-form and can be used by people who are averse to certain types of antioxidant-rich food. People depend on these either for prevention or for healing of ailments.
Pomegranate also promotes circulatory health, control cholesterol levels, and can minimize the risks for cancer and heart-related diseases.
In addition, Pomegranate works as anti-aging protection agents against degenerative diseases. The immune system is made stronger and healthier thus mitigating the process of aging. Subsequently, body organs, cells, tissues and the skin are younger and stronger.
Many herbs contain strong antioxidant agents that are considered to be of higher potency than vitamins. Studies on antioxidants in herbs have revealed interesting facts. Herbal supplements are very popular now because of the presence of these antioxidant agents. I hope the above article informs all on Pomegranate antioxidant activities.
