"Pom Wonderful Pomegranate Juice" is loaded with antioxidants, and doctors at the Preventive Medecine Research Institute, in Sausalito, California, have found it to be the closest thing to a miracle in a bottle. It is great tasting and reverses heart disease.
Their study was presented at the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology in March. Heart disease patients on cholesterol-lowering drugs were randomly assigned to drink eight ounces of Pom a day for three months, or a placebo beverage.
The Pom drinkers had improved blood flow to the heart; heart disease worsened for those who drank the placebo.
Statins can help many, but they may not always be enough. There is no substitute for diet and exercise, says researcher Dr. Dean Ornish.
