Benefits of Pomegranates
A 1/2cup serving of pomegranate seeds supplies 14.3 micrograms of vitamin K, a nutrient that is essential for proper blood clotting and helps support the health of your skeleton. That amount is 16 percent of the 90 micrograms of vitamin K that women need on a daily basis and 12 percent of the 120 micrograms that men require each day. That same serving of seeds also contains 0.52 milligrams of vitamin E, which is about 3 percent of the 15 milligrams that adults need every day. Vitamin E can cut your risk of heart disease and cancer by helping protect your body from damage caused by environmental pollutants.
