The secret to healthier skin doesn’t lie in a bottle. It’s actually achieved by following a nutrient-rich diet. In fact, there’s one anti-inflammatory food that dermatologists say should always be included in your morning meals because of its skincare benefits–it’s pomegranates!
Research shows that pomegranates contain nutrients that protect the cells from aging. A 2016 study found that the tasty fruit possesses a molecule that is transformed by microbes in the gut and enables muscle cells to protect themselves against one of the major causes of aging.
Pomegranates are antioxidant-rich, anti-inflammatory, and contain vitamins A, C and E. According to Debra Jaliman, MD, an assistant professor of dermatology at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, the juice of pomegranate seeds contain ellagic acid and punicalagin, which are compounds that help fight free radicals and preserve collagen.
