pomegranate is confirmed to higher your t-level

 pomegranate is confirmed to t improve your blood circulation

pomegranate is confirmed to be full of antioxidants


Recent research at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh investigated the effect pomegranate juice had on testosterone, blood pressure and mood and found that that testosterone on average increased by 24%, blood pressure (both systolic & diastolic) decreased and noticeable mood improvements in both sexes were noted.

Pomegranate Juice also Improves Sperm Quality:
A Turkish Study at Firate University also found that pomegranate juice increased testosterone levels in rats as well as increasing sperm quality. Researchers in the Turkish study fed rates a little pomegranate juice through a tube every day for seven weeks and found that Pomegranate Juice caused an increased production of natural anti-oxidants in the sperm and blood which helped to protect vulnerable fatty acids in the sperm against oxidation.
How much Pomegranate Juice do you need?
Research suggests one tall glass of pomegranate juice every day.

This isn't legit, it's media/bro-science/marketing.


I had a look on google/Sciweb/Journals but could not find the original study, seems like it didn't even make it to peer review.

I did find this article though:-

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2011/jun/07/pomegranates-science-media-claims

The actual studies done are on rats involved using "pomegranate fruit extract, PFE "

It's here. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25620586

So essentially they were testing the effects of Punicalagins contained in the juice on rats. How this would translate to humans by oral intake at the molar concentrations prescribed in that study is unknown.

There may be beneficial affects but there is no legit scientific evidence. Keep in mind when you get these juices to buy 100% pure pom/cranberry juice, not "from concentrate" or "juice drink" these are usually loaded with sugars and other dogshit, especially if you live in the US where food labeling/standards are poor. Also with these juices you increase fructose intake which can have adverse affects for many people depending on your metabolism.

the articel is from 2011. didnt found the original study either but im too lazy to google more than 5min for its. dont know if the articel is still up to date.

i already mentioned the rat studie in my first post.

this articel about the already mentioned studie of the Queen Margaret University is from 2012
Methods: A controlled cross-sectional repeated measure study was carried out on 60 volunteers recruited from different work locations. The subjects vary in age (mean=39.1±13.8y), sex (22 males and 38 females) and BMI (25.6±4.5 kg/m2). Daily saliva samples (AM, noon and PM) were collected, blood pressure, arterial elasticity measured as pulse wave velocity and PANAS-X mood questionnaire were performed before, during and at the end of 2 weeks pomegreat® pure juice intake. Salivary testosterone levels were estimated by highly specific and sensitive ELISA.
Results: Pomegranate juice intake caused a significant reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure (Systolic reduced from 123.7± to 119.6± mmHg, P<0.001; Diastolic from 74.9± to 72.4±mmHg, P<0.001), and improvement in the PANAS-X test score (overall increased from 73 to 77, P<0.001; positives increased from 29 to 31, P=0.017; and negatives decreased from 16 to14, P=0.029). Arterial elasticity was significantly reduced (from 7.1± to 6.9±m/sec, p=0.003). Salivary testosterone levels increased significantly after 1 and 2 weeks following PJ intake in both men and women [daily average in men from 242.1±67.7 to 296.1±90.1, P=0.001 (1 week) to 298.4±79.9pg/mL, P<0.001 (2 weeks); in women from 161.2±39.5 to 196.1±46.2 (P<0.001) to 204.5±47.6 (P<0.001)]. The increase in salivary testosterone was also observed at all time points studied.
Conclusions: This study shows that consumption of pomegranate pure juice has significantly increased salivary testosterone levels (average of 24%) in addition to effects on blood pressure, mood and the positive scores of anxiety and emotions in a large group of workers from different disciplines.

Besides several studies highly suggest that low testosteron is caused by oxidativ stress. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2093982/

>oxidativ stress can be lowered through antioxidants
>pomegranate is confirmed to be full of antioxidants

therefore i dont think that this is broscience. however i agree with you that this topic needs more evaluation and more data.

Keep in mind when you get these juices to buy 100% pure pom/cranberry juice, not "from concentrate" or "juice drink" these are usually loaded with sugars and other dogshit, especially if you live in the US where food labeling/standards are poor. Also with these juices you increase fructose intake which can have adverse affects for many people depending on your metabolism.
if you poor in america eating at mcdonadls daily, drinking too much juice is probably your last problem

[font=myriad-pro, Freesans, Helmet, sans-serif]. [font='Open Sans', Arial, sans-serif]Green tea is made from un-oxidized leaves and is one of the less processed types of tea (with white tea the least) and therefore contains one of the most antioxidants and beneficial polyphenols. [/font][/font]

Pomegranate juice exacerbates oxidative stress and nigrostriatal degeneration in Parkinson's disease


Abstract

Numerous factors contribute to the death of substantia nigra (SN) dopamine (DA) neurons in Parkinson's disease (PD). Compelling evidence implicates mitochondrial deficiency, oxidative stress, and inflammation as important pathogenic factors in PD. Chronic exposure of rats to rotenone causes a PD-like syndrome, in part by causing oxidative damage and inflammation in substantia nigra. Pomegranate juice (PJ) has the greatest composite antioxidant potency index among beverages, and it has been demonstrated to have protective effects in a transgenic model of Alzheimer's disease. The present study was designed to examine the potential neuroprotective effects of PJ in the rotenone model of PD. Oral administration of PJ did not mitigate or prevent experimental PD but instead increased nigrostriatal terminal depletion, DA neuron loss, the inflammatory response, and caspase activation, thereby heightening neurodegeneration. The mechanisms underlying this effect are uncertain, but the finding that PJ per se enhanced nitrotyrosine, inducible nitric oxide synthase, and activated caspase-3 expression in nigral DA neurons is consistent with its potential pro-oxidant activity.
