Pomegranate Juice

Did you know that:-

Pomegranate juice with many natural substances such as vitamins, minerals and hormones are in this pomegranate juice composition. All these elements has many valuable properties essential for human being.

Pomegrante juice contains vitally important substances as proteins and hormones (eston, estradiol). Its healing and bactericidal properties can be employed in fighting on accumulation of salts, oral cavity troubles, it can be used in otolaryngology, gynaecology and internal diseases. The pomegranate juice is very effective in anaemia, diarrhoea und gynaecological diseases.

Or that:-

The pomegranate has been traditionally used as medicines in many countries.

Pomegranate juice is a mild astringent, used to treat diarrhoea, and reduces some fevers.

The root bark is used to treat intestinal parasites, mainly tapeworm. The alkaloids narcotise the tapeworms so they lose their grip to the intestinal wall and are expelled. These alkaloids are also very toxic so they should not be used for self-medication.

Pomegranate contains many phytochemicals with antioxidant action, such as ellagic acid. Ellagic acid has anticarcinogenic, antiatherogenic and antifibrosis activity.

Skin Whitening
Studies have shown that ellagic acid can suppress UV-induced skin pigmentation when applied topically or when administered orally. Mineka Yoshimura and colleagues have shown in their study "Inhibitory Effect of an Ellagic Acid-Rich Pomegranate Extract on Tyrosinase Activity and UV-induced Pigmentation" (Bioscience, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, 2005) that pomegranate extract has skin-whitening property. This effect was probably caused by the inhibition of proliferation of melanocytes and melanin synthesis.

Well, now you do.

And, if you are looking for pomegranate juice, I have reproduced here the sticker of great tasting pomegranate juice made by my neighbor, Moshe Moshkowitz (Moshko).

I was at his house for the celebration for his new grandson and he served this juice that was delicious and, I learned, healthy.

So, if you want any, feel free to call up Moshko at 02-9942237 or his mobile number at 054-5649150.
