Of course, we are talking about pomegranate, which contains many extremely valuable nutrients. The 42-year-old admitted that she initially started eating the seeds of this fruit to fight infections and improve her heart function. However, she quickly noticed that eating pomegranate seeds regularly also had a beneficial effect on her complexion.
She added that pomegranate not only tastes delicious, but also helps increase collagen levels and reduce collagen loss. A video about the “magical” properties of the red fruit was eagerly commented on by her followers. She has collected over 370,000 of them on her TikTok profile.
Did you know that pomegranates are one of the best anti-aging foods you can eat?
– She began.
She explained that the fruit owes this to the presence of a compound called Punicalagin, which prevents the breakdown of collagen in the skin. In addition, pomegranates are rich in urolithin A – a metabolite produced by intestinal bacteria from polyphenols of these fruits (it is also found in berries). Studies have shown that it can slow down the process of loss of strength and muscle mass associated with aging. This is because urolithin A has a beneficial effect on the energy “factories” of our body’s cells – mitochondria. In addition, compounds contained in pomegranate seeds may slow down the growth of cancer cells.

Pomegranate juice. Delicious nectar that extends life and health
Pomegranate was cultivated 5,000 years BC. In ancient Greece and Egypt, this fruit was called sacred. In turn, in ancient Chinese medicine, pomegranate juice was associated with longevity and fertility.
It has long been known that pomegranate has a beneficial effect on the heart, slows down the aging process of the entire body, which may affect the length of our life. It is also a rich source of niacin, potassium, fiber, protein, organic acids and vitamin C – equally important for the skin. Pomegranate juice, in turn, is sometimes called “life-giving nectar”, which helps fight heart and circulatory system diseases. It also lowers blood pressure, relieves inflammation in arthritis and prevents the formation of cancer cells. It is worth adding that pomegranate juice contains three times more antioxidants (antioxidants that fight free radicals – compounds responsible for aging of the body) than the same amount of red wine or green tea.
