For Prostrate Problems and Blood Purification.
Since the dawn of human history the pomegranate Punica granatum L. has been revered for the beauty of its fruits symbolizing sanctity, fertility and abundance. In Ayurvedic medicine it is considered ‘a pharmacy unto itself’. The myriad of health benefits it offer, this exotic fruit is now the centre of attention within the medical community. Over the past few decades scientific studies have laid a credible basis for some of the traditional ethno medical uses of pomegranate.
Pomegranate provides an excellent source of antioxidants, chemicals which neutralize destructive free radicals in the body. Free radicals form during the body’s normal metabolic processes, but are greatly elevated in smoking, obesity and stress. Research has linked free radical oxidation to many degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s.
Published studies have shown that pomegranate extract possesses strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties and anti cancer properties. It interferes with tumour cell proliferation and growth, as well as disrupting the angiogenic (blood vessel formation) processes so vital to tumour survival. It retard prostate cancer progression, decrease serum prostate-specific antigen levels, prolong the survival and improve the quality of life of patients afflicted by prostate cancer. It possesses a strong potential as a chemo preventive and possibly therapeutic agent against carcinoma prostate.
