arteries feeding the neck and the brain, which helps in the prevention of complications of arterial sclerosis causes strokes and cerebrovascular disease dementia.
Experts have attributed these benefits to pomegranate syrup sang a wide range of materials strong antioxidant such as vehicles and tannin and phenolic Anthusyaninn oxidation processes that hinder low-density lipoproteins bearing bad cholesterol and cause hardening of the arteries.
The researchers follow-up of 19 people with hardening of the carotid arteries, consumed 10 of them 50 Melleltr, less than two ounces of syrup of pomegranate daily, without change of eating habits or lifestyles and continued patients with hypertension or cholesterol of them in the use of their medicine, with a measurement of the degree of hardening arteries have at the beginning of the study and again after one year using ultrasound that determine the thickness of the layers of welded vascular
After one year, the researchers found that the severity of arterial sclerosis fallen by about 35 per cent in the group that consumed a drink pomegranate, while increased by about 9 per cent in the group that did not eat as decreased systolic blood pressure or pressure reading upper 174 mm Hg at the beginning of the study to 153 mm Hg after one year.
The scientists explained that the pomegranate syrup makes bad cholesterol less sensitive to oxidation, and this effect, in addition to its role in lowering systolic blood pressure may explain the positive improvements in the amount of arterial sclerosis. The pomegranate is a fruit of the Holy when many of the peoples of the world and in many religions, it is a symbol of life and reproduction and marriage in Greek mythology, also known as medical characteristics for a long time
