The edible fruits of the exotic Pomegranate contain hundreds of small seeds, each encapsulated in a membrane filled with sweet, bright red juice.
The number of seeds may vary from about 200 to 1400, which is contrary to the belief that all Pomegranates have exactly the same number of seeds. These seeds make up about 20% of the fruit’s edible part and are separated out to cold press extract the oil.
This precious oil contains a unique essential fatty acid – Punicic acid – which is named after its source Punica granatum. Punicic acid is the only known botanical form of Conjugated Linolenic Acid (CLnA), one of the most potent antioxidants known to modern science.
Pomegranate Oil is high in anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties.
