The Power of Pomegranate

Pomegranate juice contains some of the world’s most powerful antioxidants. Studies have shown that pomegranate juice contains more antioxidants than any other known antioxidant drink, including red wine, green tea, blueberry juice, cranberry juice, and orange juice. In addition, some studies have shown that pomegranate juice may help treat prostate cancer and prevent certain brain damage in young children. Not bad for a fruit that many people aren’t very familiar with.

Cancer research

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men in the United States, after skin cancer. A recent study conducted at the University of Los Angeles found that drinking pomegranate juice may help fight prostate cancer. Forty-eight men with recurrent prostate cancer were included in the study. Half of the men drank eight ounces of pomegranate juice a day, the other half did not. The men who drank the juice lived 37 months before developing new symptoms, while the men who didn’t drink the juice only had symptoms for 15 months. This is a small study that is certainly not significant. Nonetheless, the study is promising and it is certainly worth incorporating pomegranate juice into your diet.

Brain damage study

A new study on mice, conducted by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, may hold promise for pregnant women at risk of premature delivery. Pomegranate juice may increase the baby’s resistance to brain damage caused by hypoxia and decreased blood flow associated with premature delivery. This phenomenon, called hypoxic ischemia, is thought to cause brain damage in about two out of every 1,000 births.

In a recent study, mice whose mothers drank water mixed with concentrated pomegranate juice, which temporarily reduced brain oxygen levels and cerebral blood flow, experienced 60 percent less brain tissue loss than mice whose mothers drank other liquids.

What is a pomegranate?

The pomegranate is a fruit native to the Mediterranean basin that has been cultivated for thousands of years. The tree was introduced to California by Spanish settlers in the late 1700s. It is primarily grown for its fruit in the drier regions of California and Arizona. The fruit is pink to bright red and about the size of a ball. If you are on a diet, one pomegranate contains about 100 calories. When you open a pomegranate, inside you will find a small bag of fruit that looks like a vitamin E capsule (they are red). The fruit is held together by a white, spongy, bitter-tasting tissue. This tissue is not very tasty and should not be eaten. The fruit itself can be bought in supermarkets from October to about January, but the rest of the year you have to buy the juice.
