Pomegranate Juice Yields Heart-Healthy Benefits, Study Concludes

A recent Israeli study published in the August issue of the journal Atherosclerosis suggests that drinking pomegranate juice may provide protection from developing heart disease to people with diabetes.

Atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries is the term used to describe arteries with thick and stiff walls. An estimated 80 percent of all deaths of patients with diabetes are linked to atherosclerosis.

Researchers at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology conducted a study which involved examining the effects of pomegranate juice on the development of atherosclerosis when consumed daily by 20 participants.

Professor Michael Aviram of the Technion Faculty of Medicine and his team found that people with diabetes experienced a lower risk of developing atherosclerosis when drinking 6 ounces of pomegranate juice every day for 90 days. These findings were linked to the team’s conclusion that the juice inhibited a process that can trigger the development of atherosclerosis where the oxidized “bad” LDL cholesterol is up taken by immune cells.

The researchers also noted that while pomegranate juice contains sugars which can increase blood sugar and worsen diabetes, the sugars found in pomegranate juice did not appear to adversely affect the patients.

“In most juices, sugars are present in free — and harmful — forms,” said Aviram. “In pomegranate juice, however, the sugars are attached to unique antioxidants, which actually make these sugars protective against atherosclerosis.”

Frank Mangano’s commentary:

What else can be said folks? I’ve been a fan of pomegranate juice for some time now.

Aside from these findings, this miracle juice with “good” sugars juice has also been shown in earlier studies to be effective at reducing the risk of prostate cancer and Alzheimer’s disease as well as lowering cholesterol.

I use a table spoon of pomagranite concentrate a day in 8 oz ofwater. This is the most economical way I have found. The concentrate is sometimes labeled syrup and sometimes labeled paste. I can only find it in an Asian market. Do you know anything about it ?
