According to dietetic studies (Dr. Michael Avriam, 2004) the complete anti-oxidative protection in the blood rises by 130 % after having consumed pomegranate concentrate (10 ml per day). Furthermore, other controlled studies by Dr. Avriam prove the optimal effect on the heart circulation system. The oxidation of the cholesterol LDL could be reduced strongly after the consumption of pomegranates. Oxidized LDL cholesterol is more easily deposited in sediments and results in the so called arterio-sclerotic plaque, which is known as the main reason for heart circulation problems. Even a clear decrease of the sediments in the arteries could be seen. Regular consumption prevents anti-aging, arteriosclerosis and heart circulation diseases.
