Did you know that the small pink seeds inside a pomegranate are called the arils? They are the edible portion of the fruit. 

Pomegranates are an incredible superfood. They are rich in many types of antioxidant compounds, protecting your cells from free radical damage, too much of which can lead to cognitive decline. Additionally some studies have shown that consuming pomegranate juice can reduce markers of inflammation in the body and that compounds in pomegranate fruit, juice, and oil may help kill cancer cells or slow their spread. Pomegranates contain high concentrations of polyphenols compared to other fruits and vegetables. Polyphenols are compounds with antioxidant properties, which current evidence suggests play an important role in preventing neurodegenerative disease.
