8 Pink Foods that Fight Cancer

        

“Several studies have shown that pomegranate has antioxidant and anti-atherosclerotic properties attributed to the presence of multiple polyphenols such as tannins, flavonols, anthocyanins and ellagic acid (1) (2). Pomegranate juice has been shown to suppress inflammatory cell signaling (1), inhibit prostate tumor growth and lower serum PSA levels (3) (4), and also inhibit aromatase activity, endogenous estrogen biosynthesis and breast cancer cell proliferation (5) in vitro. Consumption of pomegranate juice was found to benefit patients with carotid artery stenosis (6), in those with hypertension (7), and in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD)(8).” Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

“Pomegranate helps preserve periodontal health by preventing the adherence of plaque inducing bacteria to the teeth, by directly killing oral microorganisms and by quieting inflammation in the gums.” Life Extension

"By virtue of it's effect in restoring nitric oxide pomegranate may help combat endothelial dysfunction. Daily consumption of eight ounces of pure pomegranate juice has been shown to significantly regress markers of atherosclerotic occlusion." Life Extension

"Pomegranates have received considerable attention due to their powerful antioxidant capacity; they have show promise to improve atherosclerosis-related conditions such as erectile dysfunction and are effective at preventing cell damage." Doctor Michael Ozner MD

"In a group of aging humans with risk factors for cardiovascular events, pomegranate or placebo was ingested on a daily basis. After 12 months blood flow through the carotid artery was increased by 44% in the pomegranate group and worsened 9% in the placebo group." Life extension

"In a group of aging humans with risk factors for cardiovascular events, pomegranate or a placebo was ingested daily. After twelve months carotid artery conditions (measured as carotid intima-media thickness) were improved 30% in the pomegranate group while carotid artery conditions worsened by 9% in the placebo group.34 Additionally in those who consumed pomegranate, total antioxidant status was increased by 130%, while blood serum levels of LDL basal oxidative state and LDL susceptibility to oxidation were both significantly reduced, by 90% and 59%, respectively. In a similar study, pomegranate or a placebo was ingested daily. After only three months, coronary artery blood flow improved by 18% in the pomegranate group, but worsened by 17% in the placebo group.35"   Life extension, WoW you can't ask for much more

"One way pomegranate protects against cancer, atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes and other disorders is by inducing beneficial alterations in gene expression. Pomegranate extracts work at every step in the deadly atherosclerotic cascade to prevent or reverse the damage thereby extending life."   Life Extension, Note we have recently found the genes we were born with are NOT the genes we live with.

"Pomegranate intake may be a viable strategy for the natural chemoprevention of breast cancer."   Pomegranate Extract May Lower Breast Cancer Risk." 

“Scientists have created an ointment that tackles drug resistant infections by harnessing chemicals that are contained in the fruit's rind. They found that by combining pomegranate rind with other natural products they created a strong, infection-busting compound.”    Pomegranate Lotion Offers Hope in War on Superbugs, Note when eating as should be your habit try to eat some of the salubrious rind

"Consumption of pomegranate juice which is rich in tannins, possess anti-atherosclerotic properties which could be related to its potent anti-oxidative characteristics. As some antioxidants were recently shown to reduce blood pressure, we studied the effect of pomegranate juice consumption (50 ml, 1.5mmol of total polyphenols per day, for 2 weeks) by hypertensive patients on their blood pressure and on serum angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) activity. A 36% decrement in serum ACE activity and a 5% reduction in systolic blood pressure were noted. Similar dose-dependent inhibitory effect (31%) of pomegranate juice on serum ACE activity was observed also in vitro. As reduction in serum ACE activity, even with no decrement in blood pressure, was previously shown to attenuate atherosclerosis, pomegranate juice can offer a wide protection against cardiovascular diseases which could be related to its inhibitory effect on oxidative stress and on serum ACE activity."   Atherosclerosis. 2001 Sep;158(1):195-8

"A 2008 study from Texas A&M University found a way to protect your skin without sunscreen. They discovered that pomegranate extract provides significant reduction in UV-induced chemical damage to human skin cells. They also found that the cells had higher antioxidant capacity. This helps to ward off UV damage. Another study found that pomegranate extract can protect human skin fibroblast cells from death following UV exposure. Fibroblasts are critical for wound healing and protecting your skin.”   Doctor Robert Rowen MD

"The class of polyphenols known as anthocyanins composed of deep red, blue and purple pigments possess powerful antioxidant properties. Fruits and vegetables of these colors blueberries, cranberries, pomegranates, black currents beets and acai are especially rich in anthocyanins. They are highly bioavailable and can significantly increase levels of other beneficial polyphenols in the blood."  Life Extension

"Cranberry and pomegranate extracts rich in polyphenols have nave been shown to have potent iron-chelating capabilities in some cases completely suppressing iron-catalyzed oxidant reactions."   Life Extension

"Pomegranate is a delicious fruit (one of my favorites - except for the hassle of peeling) with many beneficial compounds. The fruit has substances, such as polyphenols, that have antioxidant, anti-viral, and anti-tumor activity. Pomegranate may also be helpful in maintaining healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and a recent study indicates it has compounds that play a role in osteoarthritis and prostate health."   Ray Sahelian

"An acid found in pomegranates appears to block aromatase, an enzyme that converts androgen to estrogen, a hormone that plays a role in the development of breast cancer. Many women who have had breast cancer take medicines called aromatase inhibitors -- such as Pfizer's Aromasin, Novartis' Femara and AstraZeneca Plc's Arimidex -- to keep estrogen from stimulating tumors. Chen and colleagues studied whether compounds, or phytochemicals, in pomegranates can suppress aromatase and ultimately block cancer growth. They found that 10 natural compounds in the fruit may potentially prevent estrogen-related breast cancer. Shiuan Chen, of the City of Hope cancer research and treatment center in Duarte, California, believes the compounds would not be a replacement for aromatase inhibitors since they are not as potent as the real drugs. But, these compounds may be helpful for prevention rather than for treatment once the cancer has started."   Ray Sahelian

        

Pomegranate is an antioxidant fruit rich in nutritious benefits. Pomegranate provides MANY benefits to MANY of your systems. Pomegranate has been known since the time of Christ and before as an extremely salubrious fruit and is mentioned in the bible. pomegranate has been shown to be a  powerful chelator of free iron in the human body. We all need this function; even premenopausal women.

Be sure to get a juice low or absent in sugar.  I use a pure extract equivalent to eight ounces of juice. Eight ounces of 100% juice per day is said to reverse many cardiovascular and other problems. Modern research confirms Pomegranate has mild estrogenic activity and may help with breast cancer including anti-mastitis and prostrate cancer. Pomegranate may help strengthen and firm up your skin.

Some Salubrious Foods that help NO Production   

     

"By virtue of it's effect in restoring nitric oxide pomegranate may help combat endothelial dysfunction. Daily consumption of eight ounces of pure pomegranate juice has been shown to significantly regress markers of atherosclerotic occlusion." Life Extension

"An enzyme called PON1 that is proven to help combat heart disease and conditions that increase the risk of atherosclerosis.2 Studies show that people with higher PON1 activity have a significantly lower incidence of heart disease and those who have lower PON1 activity have a higher incidence of heart disease.2-4 Scientific research demonstrates that pomegranate can activate the PON1 enzyme, which plays an important role in a cardiovascular protection program.5,6 While much of the initial research into pomegranate’s extensive health benefits focused on its juice, exciting findings reveal the multi-modal actions of pomegranate’s other components, including the juice, flower, leaves, and seed oil.2,3,5"    Life Extension

"Atherosclerosis begins with oxidation of LDL cholesterol. Damaged LDL “clumps” together and accumulates in specialized immune system cells called foam cells. The foam cells invade blood vessel walls, triggering inflammatory responses and the formation of early atherosclerotic plaque. Inflamed plaque attracts clot-forming platelets, leading ultimately to a narrowing of blood vessels that restricts blood flow. When inflamed plaques rupture—or clots form that block blood flow entirely—tissue dies, producing a heart attack or stroke, depending on location. A dedicated group of Israeli researchers led the way in detailing how pomegranate disrupts atherosclerosis formation at each of these developmental phases—and the crucial role PON-1 plays in this process. They began with a landmark study in 2000 that focused on pomegranate’s antioxidant properties."   Slow-and-Reverse-Atherosclerosis

“Mice with a genetic susceptibility towards spontaneous coronary artery blockages were given pomegranate extract via their drinking water for two weeks, beginning at three weeks of age. Despite the fact that pomegranate treatment actually increased cholesterol levels associated with very low density lipoprotein-sized particles, the treatment both reduced the size of the atherosclerotic plaques in the aortic sinus (the dilated opening above the aortic valve) and reduced the proportion of coronary arteries with occlusive atherosclerotic plaques. Remarkably, the researchers also found that pomegranate extract treatment resulted in the following beneficial effects:"   Pomegranate Found To Prevent Coronary Artery Disease Progression

"Pomegranate extracts are proving to be an effective means of protecting our delicate endothelium. Studies show that pomegranate works on a number of levels to ensure cardiac health by reducing cellular cholesterol accumulation, protecting LDL from oxidation, and in lab studies, shrinking atherosclerotic plaque.5-7 In addition, pomegranate promotes supple arteries that maintain healthy blood flow and pressure to all of your tissues and organs.7,8 Best of all, research concludes that by improving endothelial health, pomegranate supplementation lowers risk factors for heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular events.8-10”   Enhance Endothelial Health How Pomegranate Protects Against Atherosclerosis

"HDL does more than just cleanse arterial walls of plaque. It also protects LDL against oxidation, while inhibiting chronic inflammation, vascular adhesion molecules, and platelet activation—factors that can all lead to atherosclerosis."     Enhance Endothelial Health How Pomegranate Protects Against Atherosclerosis

“One common way of determining endothelial function and early atherosclerosis risk is to measure the thickness of inner and middle layers of the arterial wall, where the endothelium and muscle layers lie, respectively.35 This measure, called intima-media thickness (IMT) after the names of those layers, is an excellent predictor of future cardiovascular events.36 Increased IMT is associated with vascular risk factors and cardiovascular diseases.36 In a study of pomegranate juice supplementation in a group of people who already had increased IMT, the results showed those who did not consume the pomegranate had a 9% increase in IMT over one year. Those who did drink pomegranate juice had an average reduction in IMT of up to 30%.9 This was accompanied by an 83% increase in the patients’ levels of the beneficial antioxidant enzyme PON-1. Additionally, levels of oxidized LDL dropped by 90%, further reducing risk of heart attack or stroke, probably related to the fact that total antioxidant status was increased by 130% after a year of pomegranate supplementation. These beneficial changes were accompanied by a 12% reduction in systolic blood pressure over one year.9 A subsequent study revealed that pomegranate supplementation also reduced progression of IMT thickening in those subjects with the worst oxidative stress and highest triglyceride/lowest HDL groups.10 These studies provide direct evidence of how pomegranate ramps up the body’s protective responses to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.”    Enhance Endothelial Health How Pomegranate Protects Against Atherosclerosis

"Scientists have known for some time that oxidized LDL (low-density lipoprotein) can reduce the expression of nitric oxide synthase, the enzyme that produces nitric oxide from an amino acid called arginine. Recently, they discovered that pomegranate juice enhances the bioactivity of nitric oxide synthase in endothelial cells. Furthermore, pomegranate’s antioxidant properties protect nitric oxide from oxidative destruction, thus augmenting its biological actions.9,10"   Health Benefits of Nitric Oxide

"Pomegranate juice flavonoids inhibit low-density lipoprotein oxidation and cardiovascular diseases: studies in atherosclerotic mice and in humans.
Drugs Exp Clin Res. 2002. Pomegranate polyphenols were shown to reduce the capacity of macrophages to oxidatively modify LDL, due to their interaction with LDL to inhibit its oxidation by scavenging reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species and also due to accumulation of polyphenols in arterial macrophages; hence, the inhibition of macrophage lipid peroxidation and the formation of lipid peroxide-rich macrophages. Furthermore, pomegranate polyphenols increase serum paraoxonase activity, resulting in the hydrolysis of lipid peroxides in oxidized lipoproteins and in atherosclerotic lesions. These antioxidative and antiatherogenic effects are demonstrated in vitro, as well as in vivo in humans and in atherosclerotic apolipoprotein E deficient mice. Dietary supplementation of polyphenol-rich pomegranate juice to atherosclerotic mice significantly inhibited the development of atherosclerotic lesions and this may be attributed to the protection of LDL against oxidation."
  Ray Sahelian

"Pomegranate is one of the better documented nutrients one can take today to help restore endothelial function."   Life Extension

     

Pomegranate  appears to be very salubrious for your endothelial function. One of the many mechanisms pomegranate employs is to increase the endothelial nitric oxide production. IMO the endothelial function is a body part we should pay attention to and work to improve. Much of cardiovascular health is dependent on good endothelial function. The first event in the CVD cascade is often a failure of the endothelium.

Pomegranate also decreases the oxidation of your LDL packets by as much as 90%. No drug can match the CVD disease reduction that results from this combination of improved endothelial function and reduced LDL oxidation. IMO pomegranate is a MUST for anyone interested in living to a healthy old age.

    

Pomegranate Benefits

"The clinical benefits of pomegranate consumption on cardiovascular disease and blood pressure are undeniable."   Life Extension

"Cranberry and pomegranate extracts rich in polyphenols have nave been shown to have potent iron-chelating capabilities in some cases completely suppressing iron-catalyzed oxidant reactions."   Life Extension, Note most men have excess iron

"In one study, pomegranate juice treatment resulted in a 32% reduction in the production of new cholesterol and a 37% increase in cholesterol being transported out of the body.9 Similarly, treatment with the main pomegranate polyphenol known as punicalagin, reduced triglyceride synthesis by as much as 40%.15"   Life Extension

"Boosting your body’s paraoxonase function and enhancing its HDL content with pomegranate extracts produces many important reductions in cardiovascular risks.16 Pomegranate supplementation helps raise HDL and lower LDL cholesterol levels, while improving blood flow to heart muscle cells."   Life Extension

"Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are two quite different conditions with a common presentation, namely joint pain, swelling, and reduction in movement. People with arthritis are substantially less likely to be able to exercise, which adds to the already elevated risk of heart attack and stroke in these populations.45-49 Fortunately, pomegranate extracts are a promising therapy for both conditions."   Life Extension

“Pomegranate contains a number of extremely potent antioxidant molecules including tannins and anthocyanins, which have been shown to exert important endothelial-protective, anti-atherosclerosis effects.7,29 Pomegranate’s multiple therapeutic targets include those dangerous oxidized LDL particles and the inflammatory white blood cells that stream into developing plaques, eventually causing them to block arteries and cause heart attacks or strokes.5,7,29 Pomegranate contains particularly potent polyphenols that protect against LDL and HDL oxidation, which helps minimize endothelial dysfunction in its earliest stages.7 “   Enhance Endothelial Health How Pomegranate Protects Against Atherosclerosis

"Pomegranate is mega-healthy. Every bit of it. The seeds, pulp, skin, root, flower - even the bark from the pomegranate tree - are all brimming with polyphenols, disease fighting antioxidants found in plants. (Pomegranate seed extracts and juice have two to three times the antioxidant activity of red wine and green tea, those antioxidant superstars.)"    Healing Spices

"The medical name for this circulatory disaster Atherosclerosis. The name of a plant  that can prevent and reverse the problem; Pomegranate."   Healing Spices

"Israeli researchers studied 20 people with atherosclerosis of the carotid artery. Ten were given pomegranate juice and half were not. After one year those drinking the pomegranate juice had a 30% decrease in arterial plaque while those not drinking the pomegranate juice had a 9% increase. The results were reported in Clinical Nutrition."    Healing Spices   Note while this trial has a small number of participants MANY similar trials most, with more participants, show similar results I strongly recommend this book; you like I will be partaking of the pomegranate. It appears God made TWO fruits for our hearts Hawthorne and Pomegranate

"The connection between pomegranate and its neuroprotective effects against Alzheimer’s disease has been well established in animal studies.8 However, the bioactive constituents for this action were unknown until now. Alzheimer’s disease is expected to affect over 115 million people worldwide by the year 2050.9 A group of researchers looked at a previous animal study that reported on the anti-Alzheimer’s effects of pomegranate extract constituents."   Pomegranate Improves Markers of Aging  

     

 "Pomegranate juice consumption resulted in a significant IMT [intima media thickness] reduction, by up to 30%, after 1 year." … "The mean intima media thickness the left and right common carotid arteries in severe carotid artery stenosis patients that consumed pomegranate juice for up to 1 year was reduced after 3, 6, 9 and 12 months of pomegranate juice consumption by 13%, 22%, 26% and 35%, respectively, in comparison to baseline values."   Pomegranate can Reduce arterial Plaque

"Pomegranate is mega-healthy. Every bit of it. The seeds, pulp, skin, root, flower - even the bark from the pomegranate tree. ..."   "The Healing Spices"   Note I eat all of the bitter white and as much of the red skin as I can.

"Oxid Med Cell Longev. 2015. Potential Effects of Pomegranate Polyphenols in Cancer Prevention and Therapy. Pomegranate has been shown to exert anticancer activity, which is generally attributed to its high content of polyphenols. Pomegranate evokes antiproliferative, anti-invasive, and antimetastatic effects, induces apoptosis through the modulation of Bcl-2 proteins, upregulates p21 and p27, and down regulates cyclin-cdk network. Furthermore, pomegranate blocks the activation of inflammatory pathways including, but not limited to, the NF-κB pathway. The strongest evidence for its anticancer activity comes from studies on prostate cancer."    Ray Sahelian

"Pomegranates are best known for their ability to improve arterial health. Accumulating data have demonstrated that pomegranate has cancer protective properties as well. Some of the most promising findings on pomegranate extracts show their ability to impede progression of prostate cancer. Additional studies indicate that pomegranate may protect against breast and colon cancer as well. Dietary factors are increasingly recognized as playing a role in cancer development. More than 70% of certain malignancies—like colorectal cancer—are related to diet and lifestyle factors."   How Pomegranate May Protect Against Cancer

"Studies show that the pomegranate components ellagitannins (which are the most abundant polyphenol found in pomegranate juice) are not only extremely well-absorbed, but also get delivered to many of the tissues where human cancers arise—especially prostate, colon, and intestinal tissues.11 "   How Pomegranate May Protect Against Cancer

"Because cancer is a multifactorial disease, any compound aimed at preventing it should have multitargeted effects. This is a virtue of the active constituents of pomegranate fruit, skin, and even leaves. Lab studies show that pomegranate extracts exert at least seven distinct beneficial effects that confer protection to cells against malignant changes, while making those that do mutate less likely to progress."   How Pomegranate May Protect Against Cancer

"The results from these recent Swiss studies suggest that supplementation with pomegranate extract to boost the body’s content of urolithin A may be an innovative approach to maintaining healthy mitochondrial and muscle function."   Pomegranate Improves Markers of Aging  

"By helping cells renew themselves and optimizing muscle performance, pomegranate extract and its newly identified metabolite, urolithin A—could prove successful. Along with these findings, there is supportive evidence of the powerful effects that urolithin A has against Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, offering yet another tool to fight against these devastating conditions that affect many aging individuals."   Pomegranate Improves Markers of Aging

Pomegranate's value in cardiovascular disease is quite broad, as evidenced by the following experimentally confirmed properties:

  • Anti-inflammatory: Like many chronic degenerative diseases, inflammation plays a significant role in cardiovascular disease pathogenesis. There are five studies on GreenMedInfo.com indicating pomegranate's anti-inflammatory properties.[iii]
  • Blood-Pressure Lowering: Pomegranate juice has natural angiotensin converting enzyme inhibiting properties, [iv] and is a nitric oxide enhancer, two well-known pathways for reducing blood pressure. [v] Finally, pomegranate extract rich in punicalagin has been found reduce the adverse effects of perturbed stress on arterial segments exposed to disturbed flow.[vi]
  • Anti-Infective: Plaque buildup in the arteries often involves secondary viral and bacterial infection, including hepatitis C and Chlamydia pneumoniae.[vii] Pomegranate has a broad range of anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.
  • Antioxidant: One of the ways in which blood lipids become heart disease-promoting (atherogenic) is through oxidation. LDL, for instance, may be technically 'elevated' but harmless as long as it does not readily oxidize. Pomegranate has been found to reduce the oxidative stress in the blood, as measured by serum paraoxonase levels. One study in mice found this decrease in oxidative stress was associated with 44% reduction in the size of atherosclerotic lesions. [viii]

    

Eat the Whole Pomegranate

"Pomegranate is mega-healthy. Every bit of it. The seeds, pulp, skin, root, flower - even the bark from the pomegranate tree. ..."   Healing Spices   Note I eat all of the bitter white and as much of the red skin as I can.

"Unfortunately, those who are consuming only commercial pomegranate juice are missing out on many other beneficial parts of the plant, such as the leaves, flowers, and oil from the seeds. Each component of pomegranate works together synergistically to maximize its beneficial effects on your health."   Life Extension

"Pomegranate is mega-healthy. Every bit of it. The seeds, pulp, skin, root, flower - even the bark from the pomegranate tree - are all brimming with polyphenols, disease fighting antioxidants found in plants. (Pomegranate seed extracts and juice have two to three times the antioxidant activity of red wine and green tea, those antioxidant superstars.)"    Healing Spices

Medical researchers are interested in Pomegranate and several concentrated non-drug products may result. This is very good news. In the meantime we can enjoy this healthful fruit. Eight ounces of Pomegranate juice is often used in clinical trials. I eat most of the bitter white flesh surrounding and underneath the seeds.  A lifetime of eating similar fruit flesh together with the often bitter flavonoid rich rind tells me it is salubrious.

Good Price Concentrate. This is a 50% concentrate meaning you mix 4 ounces of concentrate with 4 ounces of water to get 8 ounces of full undiluted juice
