Pomegranate: A natural treatment for rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, is an autoimmune and inflammatory disease.

It means that your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake, causing inflammation (painful swelling) in the affected parts of the body. RA mainly attacks the joints, usually many joints at once.

It is an autoimmune condition, which means it’s caused by the immune system attacking healthy body tissue. However, it’s not yet known what triggers this.

Your immune system normally makes antibodies that attack bacteria and viruses, helping to fight infection.

Pomegranates are a powerhouse of nutrients like protein, fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, folate, and potassium.

Eating pomegranates as a whole can have anti-inflammatory effects and can protect the human body from various diseases like type-2 diabetes, and obesity.

Regular consumption of pomegranate helps in improving gut health, digestion, and keeps bowel diseases at bay. Health experts recommend eating pomegranate (and all other fruits) rather than juicing them.
