The researchers have proved that pomegranate extract might reverse and even prevent the primary pathology related to heart disease, such as the gradual thickening of coronary arteries as a result of build-up of fatty materials.

Pomegranate Extract Was Proved to Effectively:

  • Lower the plaque amount in the arteries
  • Decrease chemokine (a chemical messenger) associated with arteries inflammation
  • Reduce levels of oxidative stress
  • Decrease cardiac enlargement
  • Lower the accumulation of lipid in the heart muscle
  • Lower ECG abnormalities

And this is not the only study which proved this.

There was a three-year clinical trial, published in Clinical Nutrition in 2004, according to which the intake of pomegranate juice on a daily basis has actually succeeded to reverse artery stenosis by about 29 percent in a one year period.

The cholesterol-lowering statins were connected to many unfavorable health effects. The ongoing research of the incredible pomegranate benefits might actually point to pomegranate juice as a natural alternative method to unclog arteries and avoid heart illness.
