The Benefits of Pomegranate
If you are a person who is interested in living a healthy lifestyle (and you should be), then you've probably been seeing a lot about Pomegranates.
The are some very good research studies that have been done that show Pomegranates have a beneficial effect on Atherosclerosis or artery disease.
One article states that,
"The findings observed in the pomegranate group were unprecedented.
After one year, the group receiving the drugs, but not pomegranate showed a significant 9% increase in intima-media thickness. In contrast, the group receiving the pomegranate plus drugs showed a reduction in carotid intima-media thickness as follows:
After three months: 13%
After six months: 22%
After nine months: 26%
After one year: 35%
Carotid artery blood flow (as measured by end diastolic velocity) improved in the pomegranate plus drugs group as follows:
After three months: 16%
After six months: 20%
After nine months: 31%
After one year: 44%

As someone in the over 50 age group, clean blood vessels are important to me. I am convinced that Pomegranate supplements are good for me. I take mine everyday.
After a month or so I've noticed one particular thing that seems to be happening. Men, send me an email if you want the details, as this is a personal thing.
I get my all my supplements including Pomegranate at Life Extension Products.
It's one of the few places I trust to give me the highest quality products. You can also find out about nutritional research in their extensive online library.
