What juice gives you cardiovascular and blood pressure and cholesterol benefits?
Pomegranate is the answer, spit the fruit don’t swallow it all.
Have you ever eaten a pomegranate? They are the fruit with the little red seeds in them.
Well, it turns out that pomegranate juice has some pretty powerful health benefits. Some research was done a few years a go and I want to share with you some of the findings because they are pretty interesting.
Check out the benefits discovered in the research study:
* After one year of pomegranate juice consumption (3 ounces per day), systolic blood pressure decreased by 21%.
* After one year of consumption, the antioxidant health status increased by 130%.
* Oxidative stress is a major contributor to cardiovascular disease. Consumption of pomegranate juice lowered the oxidative stress levels in the blood.
* A significant decrease in the LDL cholesterol levels after 6 months of consumption.
* Was shown to decrease atherosclerosis in the carotid arteries.
So let’s recap the benefits really quick. By consuming only 3 ounces of pomegranate juice daily, over time there is a good chance you would obtain the following health benefits:

Have a great day!
