Pomegranate

In Greek mythology, the pomegranate is referred to as “fruit of the gods” and serves as a symbol of fertility, eternal youth and beauty.
 
The pomegranate is known as a fruit that is particularly rich in vital substances, and its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anticancer properties have been well investigated.
 
Especially punicalagin, a bioactive phytosubstance characteristic of the fruit, has been ascribed a large part of the effects.
