Review the list of over 100 distinct health benefits of pomegranate with a research data base you can read online or download.
The report says they drank about a shot glass full with levels of .036 milligrams of total polyphenols (primarily tannins and anthocyanins).
- I’d be curious to know how what they drank was extracted or was it just juiced?
- Are there are concentrates and/or extracts?
- Should you juice your own?
- Is high quality pomegranate juice – that doesn’t have sugar added – available?
- Organic versions?
- Would eating the whole fruit be healthier?
- Are there certain parts you shouldn’t eat?
After reviewing the other research available, it should be a pretty tasty way of creating health benefits.
Worried About Clogged Arteries? Drink This.
Millions take toxic cholesterol and blood pressure lowering drugs that may do nothing to reduce heart disease specific mortality. Pomegranate juice, on the other hand, actually reverses underlying pathologies of the cardiovascular system that lead to bypass surgeries and heart attacks.
One of the most amazing clinical studies ever performed has been hidden away behind a pay wall for over a decade.
When I first stumbled upon this clinical pearl two years ago, in the form of the publicly indexed abstract on pubmed.gov, my jaw nearly dropped.
I’ve finally acquired the full version of the study and am now excited to report on its implications in greater depth to help raise awareness about the power of pomegranate to heal the body, and I believe, save millions lives from premature death from heart disease.
The most eye-opening line in the abstract reveals why our original report on the study, How To Clean Your Arteries With One Simple Fruit, received over 500,000 social media shares:
“Pomegranate juice consumption resulted in a significant IMT [intima media thickness] reduction, by up to 30%, after 1 year.”
We shouldn’t be that surprised at how great an interest there is among the masses in safe, delicious, and affordable drug alternatives that have the power to unclog arteries? Certainly the drugs aren’t working, with the most popular class — cholesterol-lowering statins — being linked to over 300 adverse health effects. But sometimes the technical language of medicine gets confusing: what does this pomegranate-induced reduction in the intima media thickness (IMT) of the arteries mean?
