Pomegranate: 5 amazing benefits of this winter super fruit

Corbis

It makes food taste delicious and keeps you full for long.

A research study showed that participants who had a pomegranate supplement before their meals, ate 22 percent less than the control group who were given a placebo. Participants also found the same food much more delicious than their non-supplemental counterparts. Additionally, they experienced 12 percent less hunger, a 21 percent reduction in their desire to eat, an increased satisfaction of 15 percent, and 16 percent more fullness. The reason behind this reduced appetite, according to experts, could be attributed to the presence of powerful polyphenols in this super fruit.
