"Pomegranate is a fruit of paradise. There is one seed from Paradise in every pomegranate growing on the earth." (Iman Alì Raza)
Hi everyone! Welcome to www.earthessentialsbyerica.com and thank you for stopping by!.
In recent years, pomegranate juice is one of the most popular due to its many virtues, but eating a pomegranate fruit is a work of patience and skill. The pomegranate must be crumbled and all its red grains (about 600!), must be deprived of the white membrane that wraps them. Certainly, it is not the fruit to eat when in a hurry, but if we manage to dedicate a little time to it, it will repay you with its sweet-sour taste and all its properties.
A BIT OF HISTORY!
An ancient fruit with a thousand mystical and spiritual symbols, the pomegranate owes its name to the Latin words malum (apple) and granatum (with seeds). Just think that for the ancient Greeks, it was a sacred fruit to the goddesses Venus and Juno and the women of ancient Rome, used to wear branches around their hair, on the day of their wedding, to wish for wealth and fertility.
This fruit is never missing from our tables during the holidays, as a symbol of luck and prosperity. In short, a fruit that has really made history!
The pomegranate tree is grown mainly in warm areas and its origin is to be placed within the southwestern regions of the Asian continent.
Rich in provitamin A, vitamin C and minerals, the pomegranate is a valid ally for health, given its antioxidant, anticancer, anticoagulant, gastroprotective, astringent, antibacterial, antimicrobial and vasoprotective properties! Wow, surprised right?
