Were you looking for information about Pomegranate? Pomagranite is a common misspelling of pomegranate.
Some research has shown that pomegranates may be effective at treating or preventing several health conditions, such as atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, and cholesterol. The fruit contains a variety of medicinally active components. One of these components is polyphenol, which has antioxidant activity. In fact, pomegranate juice contains more polyphenols than red wine. As antioxidants, polyphenols have several beneficial effects in the body, including slowing down the progression of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).
Normal consumption of pomegranates (though food) is probably safe for most people, although medicinal uses of pomegranates may cause serious problems. Prior to taking pomegranates medicinally, be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history and any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
