9. Protects the Heart

Because pomegranate cleans out the blood, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels, it is a powerful cardiovascular protector. High blood pressure and high cholesterol levels for an extended period can lead to heart disease, heart attack, or stroke. Pomegranate also contains magnesium, a mineral which acts as a muscle relaxant and helps to regulate the heartbeat and protect it from muscle stress. Magnesium is one of the nutrients in pomegranate which lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
