Pomegranate Juice May Improve Heart Health
Research at Sheffield Hallam University in South Yorkshire, UK have recently concluded that pomegranate juice may improve cardiovascular risk because of the presence of antioxidant polyphenols
In a randomanized, placebo-controlled parallel study, participants consume 330 ml/day pomegranate juice or a control drink for four weeks. Measurement for pulse wave velocity, blood pressure, and plasma antioxidant status was no effect on pulse wave velocity, the subjects talking the pomegranate juice showed a significant fall in systolic blood pressure, and mean arterial pressure. This led the scientists to state the pomegranate juice supplementation has benefits for blood pressure in the short term
