Pomegranates are rich in powerful antioxidants and has been shown to
support health in numerous ways. The results of clinical studies of
Pomegranate Juice show it supports heart health, brain health, liver
health, and healthy sugar levels
Our Pure Pomegranate is made from whole Grade A, USA-grown Pomegranates
(fruit and seeds). No solvents are added, and each capsule delivers 40
mg of Ellagic Acid, 200 mg of Pomegranate seed, and 50 mg of fruit
extract standardized from the seed.
The Key to Maintaining Your Health
Antioxidants help reduce the harmful effects of toxic particles called
free radicals. These particles are the byproducts of normal oxygen
metabolism and energy production. They damage the genetic material
within cells. One example of how this damage affects our heart health
is the oxidation of LDL (bad cholesterol). Once oxidized, it turns into
artery-clogging plaque which, over time, damages the walls of arteries.
Healthy for Arteries
Giving Pomegranate Juice Extract to
hypercholesterolemic lab animals significantly reduced the progression
of atherosclerosis, improved circulation, and protected against
oxidation of LDL.(1)
High blood pressure can occur as a result of arterial wall damage and
wall thickening. In a study conducted in Israel, 10 patients were
supplemented with Pomegranate Juice (PJ) for one year and five of them
continued for up to three years. PJ consumption resulted in better
Serum lipid peroxidation was further reduced by up to 16% after
three years of Pomegranate Juice consumption, which contributed to
Pomegranate and Cell Health
The results of a study suggest that Pomegranate Juice and extracts may benefit blood, breast, and prostate cell health.(3) Other studies have shown that Pomegranate Juice can play an important role in cell function and messaging to other cells.(4)
Pomegranate and Brain Health
Polyphenols (antioxidants) have been shown to help protect brain cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
Researchers showed that when animals received either PJ or sugar water
control from 6 to 12.5 months of age, PJ-treated animals learned water
maze tasks more quickly and swam faster than controls. The animals
treated with PJ had far less accumulation of soluble amyloid plaque
deposition in the brain compared to the control group. These results
suggest that PJ may be useful in supporting brain cell health and shows
that further trials need to be conducted.(5)
Pomegranate for Young-Looking Skin
Ancient cultures believed that Pomegranate seeds stimulated beauty and
fertility. Recent lab tests now confirm some of the scientific basis of
this belief. Researchers in Michigan showed that Pomegranate peel
extract stimulated type I procollagen synthesis and inhibited
production of an enzyme that breaks collagen down.
The passing of time, smoking, and free radicals contribute to the
breakdown of collagen, which leads to wrinkles. The results of this
study suggest that Pomegranate may benefit the skin (6)
An overwhelming body of evidence clearly indicates that Pomegranate
Juice and its extract have the power to significantly support
cardiovascular health, support defenses against free radicals and DNA
damage, and support brain cell health. A healthy diet consisting of
Pomegranates or taking PJ supplements can offer the chance to maintain
a healthier quality of life.
