Pomegranate Spritzer

Posted by Lala Naidu on

Pomegranate arils are rich in polyphenol antioxidants. Specifically, pomegranate arils contain anthocyanins, which are a type of flavonoid (one of the two classes of polyphenols). Research shows anthocyanins may be associated with an array of potential health benefits, like lowering blood pressure and slowing cancer growth. Anthocyanins are what give pomegranates that beautiful ruby color. And typically, the more deeply colored the fruit is, the more antioxidants it contains.
