Health Benefits of Pomegranate Juice

Previously, there have been several studies that showed you can actually reverse or at least improve hardening of arteries by consuming 3 ounces of pomegranate juice daily. Now a recent study shows that consumption of pomegranate juice slows further increases in prostate-specific antigen (PSA) among men previously diagnosed with prostate cancer.

In this study, which was reported in the Journal of Urology in April 2009, 46 men with rising PSA counts after treatment for prostate cancer received 8 ounces of pomegranate juice. The “doubling time”) of their PSA (the time it took for their PSA levels to double) slowed from 15 months to 54 months. This was strong evidence that there was significant slowing of the progression of their prostate cancer.
