Life Extension Full-Spectrum Pomegranate™ Description
In ancient Greek mythology, the pomegranate represents life and regeneration. Its use as an herb dates back more than 3,000 years. But contemporary science has rediscovered the pomegranate’s surprising array of health benefits.
Numerous studies show that pomegranate is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants and it helps regulate LDL oxidation. The remarkable effect of pomegranate in dealing with various problems makes one wonder whether there is more benefit to this fruit than just free radical suppression. One answer may lie in the fact that pomegranate is absorbed in the bloodstream far more efficiently than other fruit extracts. One study showed a pomegranate extract is 95% absorbed, which is far greater than any other polyphenol-containing fruit extract of its kind. Another reason pomegranate has displayed such incredible clinical findings is that it contains a unique polyphenol group called punicalagins. Punicalagins are the major players behind the pomegranate’s antioxidant capability. These pomegranate ellagitannins can metabolize into smaller, beneficial polyphenols such as ellagic acid.
Few nutritional sources have gained as much scientific validation as pomegranate. Until now the vast majority of research has focused on extracts from the fruit. Only recently have scientists identified the synergistic action of compounds specific to other parts of the pomegranate — most notably its seeds and flowers.
Life Extension® introduces Full-Spectrum Pomegranate™ which combines standardized extracts from the whole fruit and flower, along with pomegranate seed oil, to support system-wide health.
In addition to the highly absorbable antioxidant powerhouses found in pomegranate fruit — Full-Spectrum Pomegranate™ augments these polyphenols with newly discovered biologically active compounds from other parts of the pomegranate plant. These little-known nutrients include: punicanolic acid, a member of the triterpene family of essential oils that provides cellular support to help with inflammation; and pomegranatate, to combat age-related metabolic changes.
This superior formula supplies the complete nutritional profile of the entire pomegranate plant. Just one daily serving of Full-Spectrum Pomegranate provides polyphenols equivalent to 12.3 ounces of pomegranate juice (or 24 pomegranates) plus a proprietary blend of seed oil and flower extract.
