Pomegranate Crazy

Still developing the PASSIONATE POMEGRANATE range of products, today was the photoshoot at the farm – Judi Rebstein and I enjoyed a very relaxed late-morning discussing the range and the launch programme. We also stocked up on some juice, so if you are staying at Augusta or eating at Old Gaol, be sure to try some of this amazing product.

Intriguing, refreshing, delicious: pomegranate juice is all-natural. To ensure that you get the most wholesome product possible, they only use fresh juice. They do not add any preservatives or additives, nor do they apply any heat treatment (pasteurizing).

Pomegranate juice is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants – molecules that protect the body from the harm done by free radicals that cause heart disease, premature ageing, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. Antioxidants also reduces the risk of arteriosclerosis – a condition that leads to the thickening and hardening of arterial walls. It also helps to raise the levels of “good” (HDL) cholesterol, while reducing the uptake of oxidized “bad” (LDL) cholesterol .

The antioxidant properties in pomegranates are three times more powerful than those found in red wine or green tea and higher than those found in blueberry, cranberry and orange juices.

The pomegranate is one of only 6 plant species that contains the fatty acid CLA – a natural and very powerful anti-cancer agents Pomegranate contains estron – a natural estrogen also produced by the human body. The likelihood of menopausal symptoms and the need for hormone replacement therapy may be reduced when pomegranates are consumed regularly.

Pomegranate juice also has antiseptic and disinfectant properties.

Five varieties of pomegranate fruit are pressed throughout the season and used to produce Pont Pomegranate juice.
