Different studies carried out in various parts of the world confirm that pomegranate juice or rather some substances obtained with a particular extraction, represent one of the richest sources of natural antioxidants.
Recent research , not only confirm what has been said before, but allow to hypothesize as continued use of such extracts can delay the atherosclerotic process and / or even, in some cases, ” reverse it .”
These amazing results indicate that the pomegranate is able to ensure a cardiovascular protection unprecedented , restoring a normal state endothelial , but also to lower the blood pressure and prevent the oxidation of low density lipoproteins (LDL ), the first mover of the process atherosclerotic borne by the arterial endothelium.
The good news for consumers that are available today are titrated extracts accessible and highly purified.
The pomegranate increases the endogenous production of nitric oxide, improving endothelial function.
The pomegranate, therefore, is able to perform a protective action on the entire cardiovascular system, contributing among other things to increase the production of nitric oxide (as does arginine), optimizing the functioning of the endothelial cells of the arterial vessels which are thus “normalized ” with regard to their arteriolar tone base.
Nitric oxide acts on vascular smooth muscles, dropping: the blood , consequently, more orderly flow with flow through the arteries and veins.
Nitric oxide reducing the arteriolar tone will decrease wall stress, a key factor in triggering and / or support the atherosclerotic process.
