The Benefits of Pomegranate Juice: Find out how it protects your heart.

Cardiovascular diseases are the number 1 cause of death globally. Every year more and more people die due to cardio vascular diseases than any other cause.

Just think that in 2016 around 17.9 million people died as a result of cardiovascular diseases, which represent 31% of all deaths worldwide.

Of these deaths, 85% are due to heart attack and stroke.

In this scenario, prevention is essential because most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented by avoiding behavioral risk factors such as tobacco use, an unhealthy diet, obesity, physical inactivity, alcohol consumption, hypertension , diabetes and hyperlipidemia.

Heart attacks and strokes are usually acute events and are caused by a blockage that prevents blood from flowing into the heart or brain. The most common reason is the accumulation of fat deposits on the inner walls of blood vessels that feed the heart or brain. Strokes can also be caused by blood vessels in the blood or blood clots.

The cause of heart attacks and strokes is usually a combination of the risk factors we have described above, so it is essential to pay attention to the lifestyle that one is leading.

In this sense the consumption of certain foods, such as fruits and vegetables in abundance, can help us, preferably rich in antioxidants. We have talked several times about the antioxidant properties of which pomegranate is rich in and the benefits of pomegranate juice on our health.

In particular, this super fruit rich more than any other in polyphenols and punicalagin, precious natural antioxidants, plays an important preventive action in cardiovascular diseases. In fact, the daily consumption of pomegranate juice protects the heart because it acts as an anticoagulant reducing the risk of arteriosclerosis, a chronic inflammatory process of the artery walls that causes the accumulation of low density lipoproteins (LDL) and therefore the increase of bad cholesterol and white blood cells (macrophages). There are several scientific studies that can confirm the benefits of pomegranate juice on the health of our heart.

Professor Michael Aviram of the Rambam Medical Center (Israel) carried out a clinical test that lasted up to 3 years on 10 patients with arteriosclerosis and showed that the oxidative stress of high-density lipoproteins (good cholesterol) had decreased by 60% and that the carotid thickening decreased by up to 30% compared to a 10% increase observed in a group of patients who had not consumed pomegranate juice daily.

It is therefore clear that the benefits of pomegranate juice are essential to help our body in the prevention and treatment of diseases that unfortunately afflict a large part of the world population due to incorrect behavioral factors.

Integrating your daily diet with pomegranate juice is a natural way to help the body reduce the level of LDL (bad cholesterol) and increase that of HDL (good cholesterol) thanks to the antioxidants it is rich in. In this way under medical advice and control, it is possible to reduce or eliminate the use of chemical drugs, which often involve important short or long-term side effects.
