The antibacterial properties of pomegranate have long been in use, which dates back to biblical times. Egyptians used pomegranate as a traditional remedy for thousands of years under the Ayurvedic system of medicine to treat several infections. The extracts from the rind of the fruit and bark of the tree were effectively utilized against diarrhoea and dysentery. Many small studies were undertaken in different areas of the world on the bactericidal effects of pomegranates on a number of highly pathogenic and drug-resistant strains over the years. These studies normally determine bactericidal potency of different extracts of the pomegranate plant against a range of different bacteria.
