The latest scientific research has revealed that a single food can boost health, reduce the risk of developing a heart disease, and even reverse heart issues in patients.
The results were published in the journal Atherosclerosis, and researchers say that pomegranate extract has the capacity to prevent and reverse heart disease which involves thickening of the coronary arteries, usually triggered by fatty deposits.
According to researchers, pomegranate has numerous “powers,” including:

- Prevents oxidative stress
- Stops chemokine, a chemical messenger connected with the inflammation in the arteries
- Reduces the accumulation of lipids in the heart muscle

There are other studies based on this theory. In 2004, Clinical Nutrition presented the results of a three-year clinical trial that confirmed the connection between pomegranate juice and reversed carotid artery stenosis.
Regular consumption of this juice reverses carotid artery stenosis by astonishing 29% within a year!
