Beautiful pomegranate seeds are a great way to add a splash of colour to all sorts of dishes – from Mediterranean grilled meats and chunky veg salads to hearty bowls of porridge.
The great news is that pomegranates are also really good fo us. They’re high in vitamin B, which boosts our metabolism and immune systems, as well as helping to combat fatigue. Vitamin B also helps to keep our nervous systems in top condition.
Pomegranates contain high levels of vitamin C, too – another great vitamin for your immune system; as well as fibre, which is important for digestion; and potassium, which is important for maintaining a healthy blood pressure.
