Increasing amounts of evidence clearly demonstrate the efficacy of the polyphenolic antioxidants found in natural products improving brain performance and health. Vegetables and fruits might be able to reduce or block the neuronal death that occurs during various neuro-pathological conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, hypoxia, Parkinson's disease, etc. Recently, consumption of pomegranate fruits has been well demonstrated to attenuate neuro-degenerative processes of the brain due to the presence of various active components. In this chapter, we review the mechanism of action of pomegranates on brain health.
