Pomegranate Juice: Defy Aging With One of Nature’s Most Powerful Fruits
What if you could turn back the clock on aging without spending a fortune on pricey cosmetic procedures or gimmicks that never seem to work? What if instead of simply masking the appearance of aging with superficial products, you could circumvent aging internally — just by consuming the right nutrients?
Here's the good news: It's totally possible to potentially defy aging from the inside out, and one of nature's most powerful health-promoting foods, the pomegranate, can help you do it.
What's so special about this unique superfood and how does it help turn back the aging clock? Read on to find out!
Pomegranate: Nature's Ancient Anti-Aging Superfood
Humans have cultivated pomegranates for their therapeutic properties for over 4,000 years. As one of the world’s most ancient fruits, this unique member of the berry family has long enjoyed tremendous popularity in many cultures around the globe.
The Ancient Egyptians and Mediterraneans both prized the pomegranate for its youth-promoting properties, adopting the fruit as a symbol of rejuvenation and eternal life. Early Christians associated the fruit with the idea of resurrection, while early Eastern cultures regarded the pomegranate as a symbol of fertility, long life, and happiness.
What exactly does the pomegranate have going for it? And why did ancient cultures revere it so? Let's take a look at how this powerhouse fruit has helped humans defy aging for centuries.
Pomegranates Help Your Cells Clean House
Pomegranates are known for offering an abundance of antioxidants. The human body consists of approximately 37.2 trillion cells, all of which rely on efficient and consistent energy production to function optimally. What produces the energy necessary for those cells to thrive? Mitochondria, our cellular powerhouses.
No cell is designed to last forever. As a cell ages, its mitochondria gradually wear out and begin to malfunction. Eventually, they become incapable of producing the energy required to fuel the cell's activities. As this natural process occurs, worn-out mitochondria should be recycled through a process called mitophagy. But as aging progresses, that recycling process doesn't always happen as it should.
When mitophagy goes wrong, decomposing cellular components begin to build up inside the cell, a process that researchers believe contributes to many symptoms of aging. Fortunately, science is now finding that the pomegranate can help turn things around.
Recently, researchers discovered that pomegranates contain the precursor to a very special molecule called Urolithin A, which can help restore an aging cell’s ability to conduct mitophagy. When microbes in the gut digest the pomegranate's youth-promoting compounds, they naturally produce Urolithin A as a result of that digestion process.
As Urolithin A relaunches the mitophagy process, aging cells can once again clean up and recycle their decomposing cellular components. As a result, sluggish, aged cells can once again return to healthier, more robust functioning. According to researchers, Urolithin A is currently the only known molecule that's capable of relaunching this critical anti-aging cellular process.
So what's the best way to get the anti-aging benefits of the powerful pomegranate? While you could stock up on this unique super fruit at your local grocer, it's typically only available a few months out of the year. If you do happen to get your hands on it, you’d need to consume hundreds of pomegranate seeds daily to enjoy the fruit's anti-aging properties.
