PomegranateDid you know that there is this one fruit you can add to your diet to stop your arteries from clogging? It’s true. IT will not only prevent clogging in your arteries but it will also clean up whatever arterial clogging that already exists. The fruit? Pomegranate.

A study published in the journal Atherosclerosis in 2013 states that the extract of pomegranate could possibly stop and reverse the number one cause of heart related mortality, atherosclerosis which is the gradual thickening of coronary arteries through the accumulation of fatty materials on their inner walls. Tests on mice which had a tendency towards that disease and who had been given pomegranate extract through their drinking water for two weeks starting at the age of three months, showed not only a reduction in size of atherosclerotic plaque in the aortic sinus, but also a drop in the number of arteries with such blockage. Astonishingly, pomegranate extract was seen to have many other beneficial properties that were cardiac related.

You may wonder how a simple fruit extract can have so manybenign effects on cardiac health as pomegranate extract does.It seems that this is related to our human ancestry. Our ancestors may have evolved simultaneously with certain food, mainly fruits. They would have had universal and year round access to these fruits, and gradually their anatomy would have become dependent on them to provide certain nutrients to such an extent that their bodies would have ceased to produce them. These days with our radically changed diet, a lack of these nutrients has become widespread, and has brought on a general drop in the quality of organ function.

Linus Pauling a Nobel Prize winner has in fact argued similarly that a lack of Vitamin C, is the primary cause of heart diseases, and that is directly related to the fact of our earliest ancestors had a perennial access to fruit and thus had lost the ability to synthesize it.

This study adds to the already existing body of knowledge gleaned over the years on the ability of pomegranate extract to unclog the arteries. There was, for instance a three year experimental trial in an Israeli population the results of which were published in Clinical Nutrition in 2004.It showed that regular consumption of pomegranate juice led to a substantive reversal or arterial stenosis, whereas the control group, over the same period showed a 9% increase of the same. That demonstrated that the arterial unblocking effect of pomegranate was even greater than previously supposed.

Let’s now take a look at the basic properties of pomegranate extract that have been experimentally confirmed through various studies over the years.

  1. Blood-pressure reductive

    Pomegranate contains natural angiotensin enzyme converting properties that inhibit vasoconstriction. It is also a nitric oxide enhancer. These are both important ways to reduce blood pressure.

  2. Anti-inflammatory

    Pomegranate extract has significant anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation plays a large part in the onset and progress of cardio-vascular disease.

  3. Anti-oxidative

    Pomegranate extract is rich in anti-oxidants. Blood lipids, a case in point, become atherogenic (heart disease-promoting) through oxidation. LDL, for instance, is harmless till it is oxidized. Pomegranate has been found to reduce oxidative stress in blood as measured by paraoxonaselevels. Paraoxonase has the effect of reducing the risk of arterial clogging and coronary-related diseases.

  4. Anti-infective

    A study has shown that the buildup of plaque in the arteries not only increases the risk of heart diseases, but also that of various kinds of secondary bacterial and viral infections, such as Chlamydia pneumonia and Hepatitis C. In this respect pomegranate has a wide range of anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.

You may be in some doubt about the difference in pomegranate extract mentioned here and pomegranate juice. They are one and the same.

Take your first step today. Add pomegranate juice to your daily diet, and live a life free of risk from arterial clogging.
