An auspicious fruit, good for your health

The name pomegranate comes from the Latin word “malum” (apple) and “granatum” (with seeds). Known since ancient times, the pomegranate is rich of symbolic meanings: the red juice evokes blood and vital energy while the seeds symbolize cohesion, abundance and prosperity.

The fruit of wellness

Famous for its beneficial properties, the pomegranate and its grains, the arils, have a high content of vitamins A, C, E and K, proteins and mineral salts (potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium, phosphorus, zinc and manganese). Rich in punicalagin, ellagic acid and polyphenols, it is a natural antioxidant that fights free radicals and prevents cellular aging, reduces cholesterol levels and blood pressure counteracting cardiovascular diseases. The juice obtained from its arils is a natural energizer ideal for the health of our body. For these reasons it is considered a real Long Life Elixir.
