Pomegranate: Ayurveda’s Super Fruit

Pomegranate: Ayurveda’s Super Fruit

The Ayurveda Experience April 29, 2016

The pomegranate is hailed as a kind of wonder fruit – and this is something Ayurveda has been aware of for centuries. There is a very famous saying in India.

“One pomegranate for a hundred diseases.”

In Indian culture, this fruit has been prized as a balancing, tridoshic healthy fruit. That means, it’s good for every body type.

The Sanskrit name for the pomegranate is “Dadima.” The main taste is considered to be astringent, but it also may contain the taste of sweet, sour and bitter. While it is excellent for improving digestion, the beauty is that it doesn’t increase Pitta. Best of all, it’s an aphrodisiac!

Ayurveda says that it is a remedy for impotence. Eat one every night for fourteen nights and you’re good to go! They’re also great for helping to overcome nausea. Here’s a wonderful recipe you can serve your sweetie when you want a romantic evening.

Simple Pomegranate Salad

½ cup garbanzo beans
all the seeds from 1 fresh pomegranate
2 cups watercress leaves (heat in a skillet to wilt)
1 Tablespoon pine nuts, toasted

Toss all of the above with a dressing of lemon juice and olive oil and a little sea salt. Yummy!
