Pomegranates May Improve Cardiovascular Health

Pomegranates are round, red fruits that are low in calories and fat and high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and beneficial polyphenols. A recent study suggests that pomegranates may help improve some indicators of cardiovascular health. 

The researchers used data from 20 randomized controlled trials that included 828 participants. The trials looked at the effect of pomegranates on body weight, blood pressure, glycemia, triglycerides, and cholesterol in people with metabolic syndrome. 

The researchers found that consumption of pomegranate, pomegranate juice, or pomegranate extract was associated with reductions in body weight and systolic and diastolic blood pressure. It was also associated with improvements in insulin resistance and cholesterol levels. 

The study was conducted by researchers from the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. It was published online ahead of print on April 16, 2022 in the journal Nutrients. 

A previous study found that higher levels of vitamin C may help improve metabolic health.
