Journal Atherosclerosis published a study which confirmed that extract from pomegranate might prevent and even reverse primary pathology linked with the cardiac mortality.
Study on mice with genetic weakness towards natural coronary artery blockages were provided pomegranate extract for two weeks via their drinking water- when they were three weeks old. While the pomegranate treatment rose their cholesterol levels linked with low density particles (lipoprotein-sized), the cure reduced both its occlusive atherosclerotic plaques with coronary arteries proportion and also reduced atherosclerotic plaques in aortic sinus size- an enlarged opening over the aortic valve.
The study also found that extract from pomegranate even resulted in providing following advantages:
1 Reduction of cardiac enlargement
2 Reduced ECG abnormalities and oxidative stress levels
3 Less penetration of macrophage in heart muscle
4 Lower monocyte chemotactic protein-1 as well as fibrosis levels in myocardium
5 Lesser monocytie chemotactic protein- chemical messenger linked with many inflammatory processes in several arteries.
6 Lower lipid accumulations in heart muscle
Linus Pauling, two time winner of Nobel Prize tells that deficiency of vitamin C is basic cause behind cardiovascular disease- since our hominid primate predecessors at some point of time round the clock access to fruits due to which they lost the synthesizing ability. A shortage of sufficient amount of several foods and fruits might even directly affect the worsening organ function.
