Pomegranate juice supplementation to mice with advanced atherosclerosis reduced their macrophage oxidative stress

Pomegranate juice supplementation to mice with advanced atherosclerosis reduced their macrophage oxidative stress, their macrophage cholesterol flux and even attenuated the development of atherosclerosis. Moreover, a tannin-fraction isolated from pomegranate juice had a significant antiatherosclerotic activity.

Pomegranate Juice Supplementation to Atherosclerotic Mice Reduces Macrophage Lipid Peroxidation, Cellular Cholesterol Accumulation and Development of Atherosclerosis1.

Inhibition of lipid peroxidation contributes to the attenuation of macrophage cholesterol accumulation, foam-cell the journal of nutrition, granatum plus, pomegranate juice,formation and atherosclerosis. Evidence suggests that nutritional antioxidants such as pomegranate juice (PJ) can contribute to the reduction of oxidative stress and atherogenesis.
