What is Pomegranate Extract?
Pomella is a pomegranate extract that has undergone human clinical research. Pomella pomegranate extract benefits have been linked to help support healthy inflammatory processes, along with promoting healthy vascular and cellular function. Pomella pomegranate extract is standardized to punicalagins, ellagitannins which are known to hydrolyse, or break down, into ellagic acid, and are therefore the major players behind the fruit's radical-scavenging power. By preserving the native ratio of whole pomegranate polyphenols, including punicalagins, Pomella provides the antioxidant activity potency of several pomegranates in one small, clinically researched dose. More than 30 clinical trials show punicalagins, the bioavailable and bioactive component from pomegranate fruit as found in Pomella, may significantly benefit markers of cardiovascular health. Recent studies also show that punicalagins from pomegranate support a number of health applications related to healthy inflammatory responses and oxidative stress. Pomella pomegranate extract benefits may include an increase plasma levels of urolithin A, urolithin B, hydroxyl-urolithin A, urolithin A-glucuronide, and dimethyl ellagic acid-glucuronide. Those compounds have been shown to have potential antioxidant activity and promote anti-aging effects.
Pomella Pomegranate Extract's Benefits and Antioxidant Activity
A 2014 UCLA study showed Pomella® ranked highest in antioxidant activity across a number of assays includingORAC, TEAC, FRAP and DPPH, compared to 26 other antioxidant products (1). In other 2014 studies, Pomella® was shown to impact cognitive function and markers of healthy brain aging, and inhibit AGE - advanced glycation end products (2,3).
Pomella Pomegranate Extract's Bioavailability
A study by researchers at the University of Florida found that a single dose of Pomella led to a significant, 32% increase of antioxidant activity in one hour after dosing (4).
A study by researchers at Texas A&M University found that Pomella® absorbs into colon cells as bioactive metabolites. In contrast, purified ellagic acid did not absorb. This study suggested that the main pomegranate polyphenol needed for bioactivity is punicalagins, not ellagic acid (5).
Pomegranate Extract Dosage
As a dietary supplement, take 150mg of Pomella Pomeganate Extract 1-2 times daily.
