Pomegranates are “among the healthiest of all fruits” according to healthline.com.
One of the most important nutrients they contain are “punicalagins.”
Punicalagins are extremely powerful antioxidants found in the juice and peel of a pomegranate.
They are so powerful that pomegranate juice has been found to have three times the antioxidant activity of red wine and green tea (3).
Pomegranate extract and powder is typically made from the peel, due to its high antioxidant and punicalagin content.
