How To Clean Your Arteries With One Simple Fruit

The future of cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment will not be found in your medicine cabinet, rather in your kitchen cupboard or in your back yard growing on a tree.

A new study published in the journal Atherosclerosis confirms that pomegranate extract may prevent and/or reverse the primary pathology associated with cardiac mortality: the progressive thickening of the coronary arteries caused by the accumulation of fatty materials known as atherosclerosis.


Pomegranate Found To Prevent Coronary Artery Disease Progression

Mice with a genetic susceptibility towards spontaneous coronary artery blockages were given pomegranate extract via their drinking water for two weeks, beginning at three weeks of age. Despite the fact that pomegranate treatment actually increased cholesterol levels associated with very low density lipoprotein-sized particles, the treatment both reduced the size of the atherosclerotic plaques in the aortic sinus (the dilated opening above the aortic valve) and reduced the proportion of coronary arteries with occlusive atherosclerotic plaques.

Remarkably, the researchers also found that pomegranate extract treatment resulted in the following beneficial effects:

– Reduced levels of oxidative stress

– Reduced monocytie chemotactic protein-1, a chemical messenger (chemokine) associated with inflammatory processes within the arteries.

– Reduced lipid accumulation in the heart muscle

– Reduced macrophage infiltration in the heart muscle

– Reduced levels of monocyte chemotactic protein-1 and fibrosis in the myocardium

– Reduced cardiac enlargement

– Reduced ECG abnormalities

How can something as benign and commonplace as a fruit extract reverse so many aspects of coronary artery disease, simultaneously, as evidenced by the study above? The answer may lie in the fact that our ancestors co-evolved with certain foods (fruits in particular) for so long that a lack of adequate quantities of these foods may directly result in deteriorating organ function. Indeed, two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling argued that vitamin C deficiency is a fundamental cause of cardiovascular disease, owing to the fact that our hominid primate ancestors once had year-round access to fruits, and as a result lost the ability to synthesize it.

    Anyone taking medicine that says DO NOT TAKE GRAPEFRUIT should know that pomegranate is much more dangerous for them than grapefruit. Grapefruit shuts down an enzymatic pathway through the liver that causes medicines to degrade and pass out of the body stopping them from building up to toxic levels in the system. Grapefruit deactivates that pathway 85%; pomegranate 95-96% and the tropical star fruit 100%. I found this out through research after I became ill with severe hives that went on and on and the MD could not figure out what was going on. When the medicine can't get out and you take more, YOU JUST OVERDOSED.

    Một nghiên cứu mới được công bố trên tạp chí Xơ vữa động mạch xác nhận rằng chiết xuất quả lựu có thể ngăn chặn và / hoặc đảo ngược bệnh lý chính liên quan đến tỷ lệ tử vong tim: dày tiến bộ của các động mạch vành gây ra bởi sự tích tụ của vật liệu béo được gọi là xơ vữa động mạch.

    While, if true, this would be great news, I feel it's important to remember that if everything that worked on mice worked on human beings, we'd probably all be immortal by now. The sad fact is that of all the drugs, natural or otherwise, that have demonstrated efficacy in mice, only a tiny handful actually work on people as well. We're much, much more complicated, and it's impossible to know with certainty that any pharmaceutical substance is beneficial until it's passed phase III human trials. All this study proves is that the matter is worth further investigation.

    Don David Young anyone taking valium and diazepam need to stop taking it simple as that lol. the side effects are terrible i'd never touch those or SSRI's but hey that's just my opinion :D

  5. Jolene Johnson

    Thank you for this information. I take meds for thyroid issues and can not eat grapefruit because of it….thank you for the info…

  6. Jolene Johnson

    If one did not have any problems taking where or how would they find or get ahold of the pomegranate extract?

  7. The American public has been conditioned to clog medicine and leads a life without health ailments .. giving so much profit for health laboratories .. above all … hug.

  8. Neil Murrell

    Lyndall Caldwell – Heh, fair point. Multiphase trials aren't infallible. However, they are the best we've got. And the fact remains that very few things which work marvellously in mice ever pass them. I remember reading somewhere that (and please don't take this as Gospel because I'm going from memory here) of every 1,000 drugs which are brought to multi-phase trials, only 2 or 3 ever actually pass them all. Mistakes are made, as the Vioxx fiasco clearly showed, but, generally speaking, they're a pretty good way to test whether or not something works.

  9. Van Lynch

    Neil Murrell To quote one scientist " It's easy to cure cancer in mice". A lot of things that work in mice don't go on to work in humans. Successful mice treatments just mean more research needs to be done.

    It's like my Dad said, try everything in moderation. You cannot submerse yourself in the latest fad, drug or information… ease into things slowly and see if your mind and your body feels better or worse for it. Never over do anything and if this fruit is a good addition to your diet and you like the way it makes your whole body feel then by all means keep it up..but be aware that allergies can sometimes take weeks or longer to appear… if you have any negative symptoms to anything… including bread, eggs, strawberries, body lotion, etc. then STOP using it immediately and see a doctor… a severe allergic reaction can cause many unwanted and dangerous symptoms including organ failure and death… Use your common sense when adding anything new to your lifestyle. I know you are all smart people out there… just a reminder.

    Unfortunately people who take Diazepam need it for seizure prevention. Seizures can kill. Although they can switch meds hopefully.

    Jolene Johnson I take Ashwaganda for thyroid support and have gone organic/vegan. The docs have had to lower my meds (which is a good thing) Hopefully I can drop the meds altogether.

  13. unfortunately, if you're buying a drink or something processed from the store, it's likely been heated/pasteurized to kill most if not all of the nutrients that benefit the body.

  14. Chauncey Paulos so true… we have a reverse osmosis filter on our tap to filter out toxic fluoride, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, etc… the only bottled water we will drink in urgent situations away from home is Penta brand bottled water, or distilled.

  15. You can get the same results and even more health benefits from Juice Plus. All the fruits and vegetables in these capsules are from organic, non GMO produce. For more info go to There are videos that show you how the capsules are made, and the many health benefits that have been proven with clinical studies by independent sources. And much more info about Juice Plus and what it can do for you.

    Ambra Jean which RO system do you have? is it just on your sink? i want to do something about the water in my home, but i don't know what to get. thanks for any help you can give me!

  17. Elizabeth Lebowitz we got our RO system at Lowes. They have them at most home improvement stores, if you don't have a Lowes where you live. It was about $150 and then costs us about $100 a year for filters and membranes. It has a separate little faucet, which we put through the hole in the sink where the soap dispenser once was. In our last home, we actually just (very carefully) drilled an extra hole through the porcelain sink for it. They do also have countertop systems I believe, but we have the kind that comes with a tank that we store under the sink.

  18. Charla Shamhart

    Anytime the medicine can't get out of the body, it becomes MORE toxic in the form of overdose. Pomegranate extract blocks that enzymatic pathway–closes the exit door– for any medicines that say 'don't use with grapefruit' The tropical star fruit blocks that pathway 100%. Pomegranate 95-96% and grapefruit 85% BLOCKED medicine exit.

  19. Dr Deb spends her whole day on the phone helping people that are fluoride poisoned from processed foods, water, soldering paste (fl…flux) its in wine, tea, almost EVERYTHING not labeled organic, all food producers wish they could say organic, they legally can't best they can say is fresh

    Ambra Jean be aware that drinking distilled water on a reqular basis rasies body acidity and depletes your body of minerals and eletrolytes.

    Since pomegrante is a seasonal fruit and only available in the fall in my area…..would pomegrante juice be as effective?

  23. Leo Gaviria

    that is a lie Charla, great fruit its good as a cleanser in your body eliminating the toxins that ur body produce due the garbage that u put in ur system. a good diet with in the 2000 calories and good exercise will do good. Pharmaceuticals companies are been telling you what is good for you when at the end its actually killing you. since 1980 to 2014 the increase 300% the price of the medicine.

    myth about great fruit its actually so powerful cleanser that can actually eliminate the chemicals of the pill that the effect or uses for it won work

    So is never to late to be healthy i also recommend Tai chi and Qigong ;)

  24. Kelly Phillips-Archer

    Lorrie Magee-Schnittker – Seizures can kill, but long term use of benzos is not for seizure prevention; there are anti-epileptic drugs for that. Withdrawal from benzos can cause seizures, so the use would be a contradiction, period. They're terrible for your nervous system and the rate of addiction (whether admitted by the user or not) is very high, therefore causing horrific damage- no matter how you look at it.

  25. Kelly Phillips-Archer

    There are many, many people that can't tolerate such acidic fruits, aside from the fact that there is proven adverse reactions to mixing many pharmaceuticals with GRAPEFRUIT and similar fruits. I wholeheartedly agree that big pharma is killing people, however some people simply cannot Tai Chi their way to health without the help of doctors and medications. There are very real illness and genetic factors that simply cannot be changed with holistic medicine/supplementation/juicing or whatever else is the big thing at the moment. Charla is correct.

  26. Lyndall Caldwell Vioxx lied lied and lied again. Neil, they did not make a mistake! They fired their researchers, lied again and then rushed their product to market, screwed up the results, knowing the outcome pal…and played russian roulette with their "money paying clients" and in the end essentially got a slap on the wrist…compared to the profits they made for the 5 years it was being pushed by doctors. Oh, and then Vioxx was replaced with Celebrex (sp?), and noted under the side effects that stroke, heart attack and death could result…so we're on our own should one of those happen (as it did with my 50 year old sister-in-law, it killed her!!)

  28. Rochelle Dubois, would you eat rat poison in moderation? Why eat things that we know are deadly, cancer causing and poison to our bodies. Moderation is an excuse for someone who wants to eat or drink poison – we are sooo lucky with the internet and our brains, that we can truly research and find the truth. Remember, the truth will set you free, but first, it will piss you off…says Gloria Steinem.
