Not only is blood orange and pomegranate a fabulously fruity flavour combination, it’s also a fantastic vitamin boost. Both fruits are packed with vitamin C, which helps to support our immune system. They also are both rich in vitamin A, which can support our eye health and keep our nervous systems in tip-top condition.

Pomegranate juice also has a whole host of other benefits too, including being a potent antioxidant. As a fruit, they have three times the antioxidant power of green tea thanks to plant compounds called polyphenols. Antioxidants help to neutralise unstable molecules called free radicals that can damage the body.

Studies also show that pomegranates can boost our brainpower too –  perfect for those festive games and quizzes!
