Pomegranate is rich in folic acid, antioxidants, and polyphenols, particularly the polyphenols punicalagins which have been shown to be the responsible antioxidants in pomegranate juice for combating free radicals. The antioxidant level in pomegranate juice was found to be higher than the antioxidant level in other natural juices, such as orange juice, cranberry juice, blueberry juice, and also red wine.
