Dioscorides, in the first century of our era, and recommended the root of the pomegranate "to expel the worms widths of the belly", referring no doubt to tapeworms. However, until 1800 years later, was no longer used against intestinal parasites.

The Spaniards introduced it in America, where it spread throughout the continent.
