Fruits rich in polyphenols, such as pomegranates, have been shown to have health benefits relating to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This article provides an overview of the therapeutic effects of pomegranate on chronic inflammatory diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and other inflammatory-associated conditions. Most studies have focused on prostate cancer, diabetes, and atherosclerosis. However, pomegranate has shown therapeutic potential for other illnesses. The beneficial effects of pomegranate components have also been observed in animal models for IBD, respiratory diseases, RA, neurodegenerative disease, and hyperlipidaemia.
