This pomegranate supplement is standardized to contain 40% of the important polyphenol, ellagic acid. Polyphenols promote antioxidant health, which helps fight the cell damaging free radicals that can lead to oxidative stress and the premature aging of cells.
Pomegranate is about the size of an orange, with a yellowish shell that turns a rich red colour as it matures. Inside the inedible husk are individual cells containing seed kernels. Each seed is surrounded by a juice-filled sac, which is pressed out during processing. Recent studies have shown that pomegranate juice can provide numerous health benefits such as cancer prevention, cardiovascular benefits, artery-cleansing properties, menopausal symptom relief and possible prevention of osteoarthritis symptoms, thanks to its high content in vitamins and antioxidants.
Antioxidants neutralize destructive free radicals in the body. Free radicals form during the body’s normal metabolic processes. Smoking, obesity, poor diet and stress, among other factors, may cause an unhealthy increase in free radicals that then start attacking normal body tissue. Research has shown that many degenerative diseases are the direct result of damage caused by free radicals.
Pomegranates contain three times the antioxidants of red wine or green tea. Research indicates that the antioxidants in pomegranates reduce plaque buildup on artery walls and reduce stress on the cells lining the blood vessels. These cells produce nitric oxide which helps the blood vessels relax. Researchers found that heart cells increased nitric oxide production by 50 percent when treated with pomegranate juice. Pomegranates contain polyphenols, powerful antioxidants which may directly protect the arteries by reducing oxidative stress. In several human clinical studies, pomegranate was found effective for reducing various heart risk factors which lead to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. A strong circulatory system is foundational to optimal health.
