Do you have a history of heart disease or high cholesterol? The answer will never be found in your medicine cabinet, it will almost always be found in your kitchen!
A study done in the Atherosclerosis Journal confirms that pomegranate extract could be the key in the prevention or reversal of clogged arteries. Another study done in 2004 that was published in the Clinical Nutrition Journal showed that after a three-year clinical trial in Isreal, the daily consumption of pomegranate juice reversed carotid artery stenosis by up to 29% in only one year. However, in the control group the blockages increased by 9%.
The most recent study done on mice showed that, “Pomegranate extract reduced aortic sinus and coronary artery atherosclerosis in SR-BI/apoE dKO mice. The atheroprotective effects of pomegranate extract appear to involve reduced oxidative stress and inflammation in the vessel wall despite unaltered systemic markers of inflammation and increased lipoprotein cholesterol in these mice.”
Pomegranate Juice benefits on the cardiovascular system are extensive, and there are many confirmed properties like:
Reduced level of oxidative stress
Reduced monocyte chemotactic protein-1, a chemical messenger (chemokine) associated with inflammatory processes within the arteries.
Reduced lipid accumulation in the heart muscle
Reduced macrophage infiltration in the heart muscle
Reduced cardiac enlargement
Reduced ECG abnormalities
Reduced Blood pressure lowering properties
