POMEGRANATE JUICE AND YOUR HEART

In recent studies Pomegranate Juice has been getting some really great attention. This particular juice contains a most powerful blend of disease- fighting antioxidants including: phenolic compounds, tannins and anthocyanins. In one Norwegian research it was discovered that pomegranates contain a higher concentration of antioxidants than 23 other fruits combined. Startling indeed! This big, red fruit contains 10 times more antioxidants than grapes, oranges, plums, pineapples, lemons, dates, clementines and grapefruits. Pretty impressive!

One of the major benefits of pomegranate juice is that it prevents the oxidation of, “ LDL Cholesterol, a major cause of artery damage and subsequent plaque build up. Israeli researchers have found that this juice reduces oxidation of LDL by a whopping 40 percent.

Pomegranate juice has also been found to be helpful for those who are diabetic. Researchers from Shaheed Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in Tehran found that this juice consumed for 8 weeks by participants saw a significant reduction in their  total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels. The juice has also been found to have a profound effect for those with high blood pressure issues.

Dr. Mark Stengler recommends that diabetics drink at least two ounces and up to 8 ounces of 100 percent pomegranate juice daily. Diabetics should not consume more than 2 ounces at time, and should be used with meals. For those trying to lower their blood pressure he recommends 8 ounces daily. Of course, you can dilute it with some water. I have found this a most refreshing substitute for other sugary products.
