The Health Benefits of Organic Pomegranate Peel Powder

What are the health benefits of Organic Pomegranate Peel Powder?

Many have thought that only the Pomegranate Arils contain all the nutrition. However, many studies have found the Pomegranate Peel or Pomegranate Husk contain many health benefits.

Here are some highlights:


  • Did you know? The Pomegranate peel yields double the amount of antioxidants than the pulp – Nutra
  • According to research the pomegranate peel contains as much as three times the total amount of polyphenols, including condensed tannins, catechins, gallocatechins and prodelphinidins.
  • Only organic Pomegranate producers are able to sell Pomegranate Peel Powder. Since Ganico has a zero tolerance towards pesticides and chemicals on our farm, we are in a unique position to sell our Pomegranate Peel Powder since no chemcial will affect the peel.
  • Gut Health – Pomegranate Peels contain anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties which promote good gut health.
  • Diabetes control – 37 people with type 2 diabetes, those who took 500 mg of pomegranate peel extract saw improvements in their blood pressure, cholesterol, and hemoglobin A1c, compared with people given a placebo (Science Direct).
  • Cancer Fighting  – Pomegranate peels contain high amounts of punicalagin, a polyphenol that has been shown to have anti-cancer properties in some test-tube studies (PubMed, PubMed_Article 02).

We care what goes into our soil, which is why we don’t use any chemicals and fertilizers. This in turn yields a healthier Pomegranate, which means a healthier YOU!
