What is Pomegranate mix?

Pomegranate mixture consists of the husk and peel of a pomegranate. The Pomegranate (Punica granatum), has been cultivated in sub-tropical parts of Europe, Asia and North Africa for thousands of years. It is a circular fruit with many sweet, ruby red gelatinous seeds contained within a hard orange skin. They are commonly viewed as a symbol of hope and abundance and have been used traditionally by many cultures around the world due to their numerous health benefits.

Pro/prebiotic Benefits

“Prebiotics” provide food for “probiotics”. Pomegranate mix is an excellent prebiotic that ferments in the intestines, to provide ‘food’ to many bacteria. It is seen through research pomegranate has acted as a prebiotic. Pomegranate juice and extract significantly increased beneficial bacteria like ​Bifidobacterium​ and ​Lactobacillus​ and simultaneously inhibited the growth of harmful bacteria such as B. fragilis group, clostridia, and Enterobacteriaceae​.

Antioxidant

Pomegranates strong antioxidant activity owes to its polyphenolic content, which are mostly found in the juice and the peel. There it contains ellagitannins, specifically: punicalagins, punicalins, gallagic acid, and ellagic acid. It’s these constituents that help prevent oxidation in a few different ways including, reducing macrophage (immune cell) oxidative stress, free radicals and lipid peroxidation. Oxidation can potentially cause cell damage, therefore the antioxidants from the pomegranate mix can mitigate this.

Nitric oxide - creating better blood flow (insert research)

It’s been found that pomegranates antioxidant effect is up to three times more potent than green tea or red wine!

High Cholesterol Support

Dietary supplementation with nutrients rich in antioxidants is associated with inhibition of LDL, immune cell formation and atherosclerosis. Pomegranates are a good source of polyphenols and other antioxidants. The present study was performed to evaluate the effect of pomegranate peel powder and it’s extract on lipids metabolism in high cholesterol. Pomegranate peel powder were added to high cholesterol diet by 5, 10 or 15% as dietary fibre supplemented.
