Fertility food series- Pomogranate- The Wonder Fruit !!!!

It will not be wrong to call Pomegranate a wonder fruit, which is one of the earliest fruits that have been cultivated in different parts of the world. The ruby like seeds are historically revered as a natural aphrodisiac and symbol of fertility for both men and women.

To name a few, pomegranate is a rich source of antioxidants, zinc, folic acid, Vitamin C and vitamin A. When we turn the pages of history we can see that, the pomegranate fruit and its juice have been hailed as an amazing promoter of fertility. Pomegranate  help women  in  augmenting  fertility by boosting the blood flow to the uterus, thus helping the women conceive faster. 

This fruit not only aids to get pregnant naturally, but also  reduces the risks  of premature child birth. The high concentration of folic acid in this fruit helps to meet the daily requirement in pregnant women and thus in turn helps in the delivery of healthy babies. During pregnancy, there is  rapid cell growth and division wherein  the body requires more folic acid in order to keep the body hale and healthy. 

The  anti-inflammatory flavonoids in the fruit can help blood vessels remain open and promote blood supply to all areas of the body. This along with the potassium helps in reducing cramps in pregnant women.

Pomegranate increases sex drive and acts as fertility enhancers for men and is known to improve  the  sperm  quality  and  quantity. Pomegranate juice  is rightly called  Viagra juice,  as it is known to increase the libido. Regular intake of pomegranate juice will aid in the  increase  of density of sperm cells, reduce the number of spermatozoa with abnormal morphology and is effective in controlling erectile dysfunction.

This powerful fruit  is also packed with other amazing health benefits like fighting against the natural aging process,  protecting people from diseases, potential protection of the brain etc.

"All that man needs for health and healing has been provided by God in nature, the Challenge of science is to find it”
