Punica granatum is a deciduous shrub or small tree in the loosestrife family (Lythraceae) and is believed to have originated in what was Persia. Pomegranate arils (the flesh around the small seeds) are high in vitamin C and antioxidant flavonoids that may help with high blood pressure, arterial and neurologic health, cancer prevention, immune function, periodontal disease, and erectile dysfunction.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.
