A Food Plate for A Strong Immune System
We strengthen the immune system. Pomegranate will help cope with the virus
Currently, strengthening the immune system is becoming a priority task. To do this, you do not always need to resort to dietary supplements and vitamins purchased at the pharmacy. Often, we can easily get all the necessary nutrients from ordinary food if we include them in our diet. For example, pomegranate has many positive and even healing properties. Together with a nutritionist and nutritionist Anna Berseneva , we will tell you how this fruit will help improve health.
What substances are contained in pomegranate?
Pomegranate has been used since ancient times as medicine. Now pomegranate trees grow in the Mediterranean countries, as well as in the Caucasus, in the Crimea and in the Krasnodar Territory. The healing properties of pomegranate are due to its unique composition. Pomegranate contains a number of useful ingredients.
It contains succinic, citric, tartaric, malic, boric and oxalic acids. And also ascorbic, folic and pantheinic. They promote healthy metabolism and strengthen immunity.
Pomegranate is rich in potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, sodium, chromium and manganese.
Tannins, phytoncides and tannins
They heal the body. Tannins help to cope with intestinal disorders, dysbiosis and diarrhea. They have a bactericidal and anti-inflammatory effect on mucous membranes and wound surfaces. Phytoncides kill bacteria or inhibit their growth. Tannin has a positive effect on the circulatory system, removes toxins from the body and accelerates recovery.
They remove radionuclides from the body, which are a source of internal radioactive contamination, as well as toxins and heavy metals.
With such a rich composition, pomegranate belongs to low-calorie foods. There are only 56 calories in 100 g of pulp. At the same time, carbohydrates are on average 20 g, proteins - 0.7 g, and fats are practically absent - there are no more than 0.6 g.

The fruit has an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect, it is effective in the prevention of tuberculosis. And, of course, pomegranate boosts immunity and protects the body from colds and viruses.
Ploe is able to lower blood pressure, so the benefits of pomegranate are undeniable for hypertension. It removes radioactive substances and toxins from the body, eliminates the consequences of their negative effects and heals the liver.
I would like to note the benefits of pomegranate for women, especially during menopause. Due to the fact that the fruit contains the plant hormone estrogen, the unpleasant symptoms of the course of menopause will be significantly smoothed out - their manifestation will become milder. Also, vitamins and trace elements in pomegranate take care of beauty and youth, improve the health of skin and hair.
Pomegranates are also useful for men. The presence of vitamin B12 stimulates blood circulation and solves problems with potency.
In addition to the beneficial properties of the fruit pulp, the skins have powerful healing properties. They contain twice as much tannins, antioxidants and phenols as pulp. They make infusions, decoctions, powders to relieve the signs of colds, dysentery, stomatitis and sore throats. Preparations based on pomegranate peel act on oxidative processes, cleanse the liver and lower the level of bad cholesterol. Of course, products based on peels should be taken in a strict dosage.
Decoctions, infusions and oil are prepared from pomegranate seeds. Medicines based on them help with diabetes, normalize bowel function. Pomegranate seeds are high in fiber, so you can eat them, but only if they are soft. In the intestines, they behave like a hard brush, because they are not digested, but pass through the digestive system, removing toxins and toxins. They contain essential oils that nourish the body with vitamins and acids.
