Pomegranates are found with a potential to boost muscle strength and help to counteract the ageing, say researchers. As we age, our cells increasingly struggle to recycle the mitochondria — the powerhouse of the cells — and are no longer able to carry out their vital function and thus gets accumulated in the cell.
The findings showed that when we drink the pomegranate juice, our body produces Urolithin A — a molecule. When this molecule gets transformed by microbes in the gut, it enables the muscle cells to protect themselves against ageing and also increases the muscle mass.
