ancient medicinal traditions of the Mediterranean have long relied on
the benefits of the pomegranate. Many of these ancient directions for
using the pomegranate called for the rind, and we now know that most of
the nutritious ellagic acid and tannins are present in the uneaten peel.
the benefits of pomegranate have been clarified by science. Not only do
we have a pretty good idea what pomegranate is good for, but also how
and why. The beneficial properties of pomegranate juice were first
suggested in modern day medicine in Lansky at the College of Pharmacy in
South Dakota. Through its potent concentration of nutritious,
health-giving polyphenols, the pomegranate has since been suggested to
help widen narrow arteries and battle carcinogenic cells.
Pomegranate juice has been linked to a reduction in the amount of
plaque in the arteries. Some of this effect may be traced to the juice’s
ability to interfere with the initial process of atherosclerosis, the
oxidation of LDL (bad cholesterol) which leads to the eventual migration
and aggregation of cholesterol in the arterial wall.
other mechanisms behind the anti-atherogenic properties of pomegranate
juice may include the balancing of good-to-bad cholesterol thanks to the
tannins in pomegranate juice, and that pomegranate juice may even help
reduce the thickness of diseased arteries, thereby improving blood
peel and the ellagic acid that resides within it have also been shown
to have remarkable effects against cancer in test tube and animal
studies. These effects include protecting against carcinogens and toxins
and inhibiting the growth of cancerous cells.
How It Works
- Antioxidant – It’s
believed that ellagic acid works by quenching free radicals through the
induction of the cellular antioxidant glutathione, and the activation
of detoxifying enzymes.
- DNA Protector – Ellagic acid also binds
to DNA at threatened sites, blocking carcinogen access to our genetic
blue print. Alternatively, by occupying the critical sites on DNA,
ellagic acid may directly interact with reactive carcinogenic
metabolites by donating its electrons and transforming the hostile
metabolite into one less capable of doing harm.
research team from the University of Nottingham found that pomegranate
extract destroyed several viruses on contact. The most active and potent
effects of pomegranate comes from its ellagic acid content. An in-vitro
study also showed that pomegranate extract had powerful anti-microbial
and antimalarial effects on a variety of common pathogens like Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans and Staphylococcus aureus to name a few.
researchers noted that the tannins in pomegranate juice helped balance
good and bad cholesterol levels. Additionally, they found that
pomegranate juice reduced the thickness of the carotid artery, lowering
blood pressure and greatly benefiting carotid stenosis patients during a
three year study.
Pomegranate or ellagic acid’s effects against
cancer have been shown in many studies. In-vitro studies show
anti-estrogenic effects and the inhibition of 17 beta-estradiol, an
enzyme which can lead to tumors in women. Carcinogens, such as
nitrosamine, polycyclic hydrocarbon and fungal toxins, are eliminated by
ellagic acid. A potent antimutagen, ellagic acid protects against
aflatoxin B1 and the potent environmental carcinogen,
N-methyl-N-nitrosourea. In mice, ellagic acid has also been shown to
reduce the size and number of tumors in mice with lung cancer, inhibit
cancerous growth and decrease tumor size in prostate cancer. They also
appear to inhibit the growth of human prostate cancer cells. Topically,
pomegranate oil has been shown to significantly reduce the incidence of
Human studies have now recently shown that
pomegranate juice can help slow the progression of prostate cancer and
that ellagic acid is a safe and effective adjunct to chemotherapy in
prostate cancer patients, reducing toxicity induced by chemotherapy.
is known to be a super fruit and a powerful antioxidant that may help
protect against cancer. Pomegranate juice is the most popular way to
benefit from pomegranates.
acid is the main active ingredient in pomegranate. Unfortunately, most
of the ellagic acid is found in the rind of the pomegranate. Since no
one wants to eat pomegranate rind, AOR’s C + Pomegranate is standardized
for ellagic acid, providing unique benefits over pomegranate juice
without the bitter taste.
