Pomegranate Nutrients and phytochemicals


According to Wikipedia, Pomegranates are listed as high-fiber in some charts of nutritional value. That fiber, however, is entirely contained in the edible seeds which also supply unsaturated oils. Pomegranate aril juice provides about 16% of an adult’s daily vitamin C requirement per 100 ml serving, and is a good source of vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), potassium and polyphenols, such as tannins and flavonoids. The most abundant polyphenols in pomegranate juice are the hydrolyzable tannins called ellagitannins formed when ellagic acid binds with a carbohydrate. Punicalagins are tannins with free-radical scavenging properties in laboratory experiments and with potential human effects. Punicalagins are absorbed into the human body and may have dietary value as antioxidants

Pomegranate and Prostate cancer prevention

Advancement of Science (AAAS) managed to test whether testosterone resistance in pomegranate juice. They managed to modify the component which is a cancer inhibitor on pomegranate juice. This component is helpful for improving the function and make it more effective in preventing prostate cancer metastasis. Martins-Green explained that there is an important protein produced in the bone marrow cause cancer cells to move to the bone in which they can then form a new tumor.
Pomegranate juice cause the occurrence of metastasis of testosterone prostate cells. Because the genes and proteins involved in the movement of prostate cancer cells are essentially similar to those involved in the movement of other types of cancer cells, the components can be modified by the juice has a wider impact in the treatment of pomegranate to cure cancer cell. When pomegranate cell was injected, there is increased adhesion of cancer cells ( of attraction between cells). That’s a sign that fewer cells break away and make them less likely to spread and migrating cells in the body. The conclusion from this study showed that pomegranate juice significantly inhibits the function of this protein, and thus this juice has the potential to prevent metastasis of prostate cancer cells to the bone.
This discovery could lead to new drug therapies to fight cancer, the researchers said. In addition, pomegranate juice also inhibits the formation of new tumors by inhibiting the function of cell proteins. Thus, this juice has the potential to prevent metastasis of prostate cancer cells to the bone.
