Lakewood’s Pure Pomegranate juice is one of the best additions to a healthy diet, as it contains 10-12 fresh pomegranates in every bottle. There is no shortage of research indicating that pomegranate juice is “Nature’s Super Fruit”. Not only is it a perfect addition to a healthy diet in terms of anti-oxidants, phytochemical nutrients, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, it could also be one of the best steps towards optimum heart health.
The Health Benefits of Pomegranate Juice
A 2008 Israeli study highlights the antioxidant benefits of pomegranate juice, suggesting that pomegranate juice consumption for 3 years by patients with carotid artery stenosis reduced common carotid artery thickness, blood pressure and LDL oxidation. Pomegranate juice, being rich in tanins (the same chemical found in abundance in black tea and red wine), possesses demonstrated anti-atherosclerotic properties related to its potent anti-oxidative characteristics. In one study of hypertensive patients, daily consumption of just 50 ml of pomegranate juice for two weeks reduced systolic blood pressure by inhibiting serum angiotensin-converting enzyme. Pomegranate juice consumption may also be a powerful antiviral, specifically acting as a HIV-1 entry inhibitor and candidate topical microbicide. As if that’s not enough, yet another study shows that pomegranate juice has antibacterial effects against dental plaque.
