Parasites are small worms that live in the digestive tract, often causing various health problems. While doctors can prescribe drugs to deal with them, some people use natural remedies, such as pomegranate juice, instead.


Mankind has cultivated pomegranates for over 4,000 years, and the round red fruit has often appeared in mythology as a symbol of health. Pomegranates contain a high concentration of vitamin C and potassium and are a good source of dietary fibre.


Tapeworms are flat worms that can grown up to 30 feet in length and can live inside the human intestine. Many people contract tapeworms by ingesting the eggs along with undercooked meat or fish.

Pomegranates vs. Tapeworms

According to several natural remedy websites, pomegranate juice can kill tapeworms. The Natural Path recommends drinking four glasses of the juice daily until the worm has been passed through the bowels. You should consult your physician when treating tapeworms with pomegranate juice.
