Another Great Reason To Eat Pomegranates

Awhile back I talked about how pomegranates were the newly marketed fruit, This was before the big Acai explosion. Recent studies show that the polyphenols in pomegranates helps to reduce prostate cancer cell growth.

A new study in The Journal of Urology found pomegranate juice slows the doubling time of prostate specific antigen (PSA). PSA’s are used to track and diagnosis prostate cancer. For the study, participants, 48 men with rising PSA levels after surgery or radiotherapy, who drank one glass of pomegranate juice each day, had longer doubling times during a 56 month follow-up than men not drinking pomegranate juice; Nutra Ingredients investigates.

Pomegranate juice is wonderful and while craving up a pomegranate can be quite a task, it’s well worth every second. While the Pom boom has kind of fizzled, this isn’t a fruit to consume because it’s “the cool health kick” of the moment. Concentrated Pomegranate juice may be a bit pricey but the fruits run about a buck and you don’t have to eat one every day to reap the benefits.
