The Benefits of Pomegranate On Cancer Treatment

By Silvia Meave*

Drinking just one glass of pomegranate juice every day can bring extraordinary benefits to your health, and it may help people diagnosed with cancer to overcome the disease more efficiently. This can be possible because scientists have recently found that pomegranate juice and pomegranate extract contain potent healing chemical compounds which effectively work together to block the malignant growth. Pomegranates (Punica granatum L.) also enclose anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents, making this fruit a powerful dietary supplement.

How Pomegranate Works

Cancer is a disease of unrestricted cell proliferation. Considering that sometimes cancer cells become resistant to radiotherapy and chemotherapy, scientific researchers have spent time observing the behavior of pomegranate's compounds on malignant tissue. They have found that the fruit destroys them, but not healthy cells.

Scientists think pomegranate is a potential cancer chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic aid, with higher antioxidant activity, compared to red wine and green tea. So they are focused on how this fruit works to block or destroy cancer. They expect to employ pomegranate in the future as a regular healing therapy.

Ancient Healing Resource

The pomegranate has been used for the prevention and treatment of many diseases in ancient cultures since this amazing fruit also protects your body against heart disease, diabetes, arthritis as well as some other health issues.

Indian Ayurvedic medicine discovered pomegranate's antiparasitic properties, as well as its use to treat diarrhea, ulcers and some inflammatory processes.

"Remarkably, it is not just the pomegranate fruit itself, but other parts of the plant as well, including the bark, leaves, and roots of the pomegranate tree, that are rich in molecular constituents with therapeutic properties," it is cited in a scientific research paper.

Experts remind us that a proper nutrition regime is a proven prevention strategy against cancer and other diseases. So, please, don't waste time to choose the path of health by eating natural food, plenty of vegetables and fruits.
