Encouraging Evidence Supports Pomagranates May Reduce Risk of Heart Disease

In a recent study, pomegranates were found to potentially reduce the risk of heart disease in humans.

The long-known health benefits of pomegranates were recently expanded upon. Though widely celebrated for being packed with antioxidants, researchers are now saying that pomegranates may also significantly reduce the risk for heart disease.

Common heart disease markers include inflammation, high blood pressure, and elevated cholesterol levels. These were the exact markers evaluated in a 2021 study conducted using rats. The animals were fed a high-fat diet and then given pomegranate juice to drink. The results were significant; showing a decrease in “bad cholesterol” (low-density lipoprotein) by 39%, and an increase in “good cholesterol” (high-density lipoprotein) by 27%. Additionally, blood pressure reduced by 24%, and inflammation markers decreased as well.

Though this research currently reflects the positive impacts of pomegranate juice on rats, it is very encouraging for future findings regarding human cardiovascular health.
