Pomegranate Juice helps against Inflammation

An inflammation is a response of our immune system to destroy germs and to heal wounds. Therefor it plays a crucial role in protecting and healing our body.  However, if the inflammated process chronifies, it can lead to cancer, heart attacks and diabetes among other autoimmune diseases.

Oxidative stress and inflammation processes are connected to each other. Every inflammation causes oxidative stress, because the body´s immune system utilizes unbound oxygen and nitrogen radicals. This process can use up our body´s own antioxidants. 

Pomegranate juice contains a very high amount of polyphenols, which prevent oxidative stress by strengthening the body´s protective system. Additionally, they influence the inflammation directly, by inhibiting pro-inflammatory proteins and enzymes.
