Pomegranate Juice And Its Many Benefits For Women’s Healthby Shreyansh K. Organic Fruit Juices
Delicious, ruby-like and juicy, pomegranates need no introduction. It is a fruit that is packed with the most amazing properties available in nature. Pomegranates are aptly regarded as one of the healthiest fruits on earth and even more so for women. Packed with innumerable health benefits from preventing anaemia and cancers to aiding weight loss and supporting your pregnancy, there’s so much a single glass of pomegranate juice can do. Ladies, this is a fruit that you should nourish your body with, no matter your age. Here’s why you need at least one glass of fresh pomegranate juice a day.
It prevents anaemia: Studies reveal that 51% of women in India, between the ages of 15-49 are anaemic. This ruby-red fruit is ideal for such women who need big doses of vitamins A, B5, C, E and K as well as calcium, copper, potassium and manganese, all of which are important to help fight anaemia. Also, Vitamin B complex compound like pantothenic acid, pyridoxine and folates in this natural fruit juice has innumerable health benefits. Pomegranates are especially a good option for women who don’t like other produce like spinach, peas, beans and beetroot that can also help with anaemia.
It eases menstrual pain: While 50% of women do not experience menstrual pains or discomfort during their time of the month, the other 50% women find it difficult to even get out of bed, especially in the early days. This is because precious iron leaves the body, making women feel weak, tired, irritated and fatigued. Since fresh pomegranate juice is rich in iron, it can reduce the pain felt by women during menstruation. It also compensates any deficit of red blood cells, thus helping women during that painful time of the month.
It helps during pregnancy: While it is recommended that you consume pomegranate juice during pregnancy, you must first consult your gynaecologist before putting anything into your body. Pomegranate has a powerful mix of minerals and vitamins which ensure healthy blood–flow and prevent any brain damage on the foetus in the womb. Drinking a glass of fresh pomegranate juice a day also reduces risks of premature childbirth and helps prevent nausea, leg cramps and morning sickness experienced by women during pregnancy. Furthermore, the fruit also reduces oxidative stress in the placenta.
It aids weight-loss: Pomegranate juice blends contain soluble and insoluble fibres which increase your satiety and expel toxins and fats from your body. The natural sugar present in the fruit does not elevate your blood sugar levels and gets absorbed slowly in the blood, without causing any unnecessary sugar spikes. As a matter of fact, it combats all properties that can cause obesity and helps you lose weight. It also helps diabetic people lose weight, while fighting metabolic syndromes and improving insulin sensitivity.
