The pomegranate is a fruit with healthful benefits. both pomegranate skin and seeds can be used in Chinese traditional medicine in ancient times in China. The recent study shows pomegranate contains high levels of polyphenols. The active constituent that appears to be responsible for its multiple health benefits is ellagic acid. Ellagic acid is a naturally occurring phenolic compound. Pomegranate extract is a superior way to reap the benefits of this fruit ,which has demonstrated a variety of beneficial functions including antioxidant and anti-viral activity.The polyphenols extracted from pomegranate seeds and skin is a powerful antioxidant which helps to improve joint flexibility and skin elasticity, strengthen capillaries, arteries, and veins. Its activity in fighting inflammation in arthritis and sports injuries has also been reported. Eye disorders such as diabetic retinopathy (inflammation of the retina associated with diabetes mellitus) and reduced visual acuity can also benefit from it. The pomegranate fruit powder is spray dried from the pomegranate concentrate juice. It can be freely used in food and beverage. The nutrients in the pomegranate fruit powder increase blood flow. This reduces blood pressure, helps circulation, provides healthier hair and skin.
Accumulating data clearly claimed that pomegranate has several health benefits. Pomegranates can help prevent or treat various disease risk factors including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, oxidative stress, hyperglycemia, and inflammatory activities. It is demonstrated that certain components of pomegranate such as polyphenols have potential antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticarcinogenic effects. The antioxidant potential of pomegranate juice is more than that of red wine and green tea, which is induced through ellagitannins and hydrosable tannins. Pomegranate juice can reduce macrophage oxidative stress, free radicals, and lipid peroxidation. Moreover, pomegranate fruit extract prevents cell growth and induces apoptosis, which can lead to its anticarcinogenic effects. In addition, promoter inhibition of some inflammatory markers and their production are blocked via ellagitannins. In this article, we highlight different studies on the therapeutic effects of pomegranate and their suggested mechanisms of actions.
Pomegranate Extract inhibited the growth and viability of prostate cancer cells through modulation of the cki–cyclin–cdk network, with upregulation of p21 and p27 during G1-phase arrest, independent of p53.
People use pomegranate for high blood pressure, athletic performance, heart disease, diabetes, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support most of these uses.
Pomegranate has been used for thousands of years. It is in Greek, Hebrew, Buddhist, Islamic, and Christian mythology and writings. It is described in records dating from around 1500 BCE as a treatment for tapeworm and other parasites.
Pomegranate contains a variety of chemicals that might have antioxidant effects. Some preliminary research suggests that chemicals in pomegranate juice might slow the progression of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and possibly fight cancer cells. But it is not known if pomegranate has these effects when people drink the juice.
