Calcium

Pomegranate is one of the richest sources of polyphenols (plant chemicals that protect your body from damage).

Nitrates

Nitrates help to`increase blood flow and relax blood vessels to prevent excess damage.

Tannins

Tannins are a group of polyphenols that give a partial yellow-brown color, which helps control blood pressure and reduce lipid levels

Omega 3s
