Kaolin is a clay mineral, which has been used in Asia for over 2,500 years to make porcelain. It is cleansing, astringent and anti-inflammatory and widely used in cosmetics, medicines, food additives, toothpaste and anti-adiarrhoea medicines. Its health benefits have been widely debated and some cultures practice geophagy (eating clay and soil for its nutritional benefits). “It is possible that he binding effect of clay would cause it to absorb toxins.” Dr. David L Katz, a nutritional expert at the Yale School of Medicine and medical contributor for ABC News said recently during a discussion on the topic.
Punica Granatum (pomegranate fruit) is a widely studied fruit and clinical trials have found it has numerous health benefits, including reducing the risk of hearth disease and lowering blood pressure. Researchers at Mindlab International at the University of Sussex, UK recently discovered an unexpected health benefit: it helps to boost libido in men and women. It is vitamin-rich, astringent, anti-bacterial and thought to be an aphrodisiac.
Pomegranate seed oil is highly nutritious and contains high levels of antioxidants – good for anti-aging and healing dry skin. It also contains phytoestrogens (a plant form of estrogen), which can help to relieve vaginal dryness, a common problem during breastfeeding, menopause and when taking certain medications such as the contraceptive pill. A 2006 study at the University of Michigan Medical School published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology found that the oil regenerates and strengthens the skin.
