In this article we review some of the major problems affecting women and then we'll see what the 'super fruit' can do pomegranate to prevent and improve of course each of these conditions.
And we'll also see because pomegranate can do this, what are the mechanisms by which the pomegranate provides its powerful help and what the researchers who have studied the effects of this fruit say.
No superficial bar chat, also because these are very delicate and important topics.

- 1.6 Another elective problem for women is the risk of breast cancer
A problem that occurs more frequently in women: heart attack after menopause
A harsh reality - statistically evaluated - is that for which women have a frequency of death from heart attack after menopause from 2 at 3 times higher compared to men1.
But once again it really seems that every problem corresponds to a solution in nature.
Un natural help for this and other health problems it can come from one of the most pleasing fruits there is: the pomegranate.
The pomegranate is amazing for i benefits which gives the body.
The pomegranate is said to possess over 100 different health benefits, but here and now we focus on women, because one can safely say that this is the female fruit par excellence.
You will understand better why continuing to read...
First of all let's try to understand how the pomegranate can help the condition of greater risk of heart attack and coronary heart disease (coronary arteries are the large arteries that carry oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle) characteristics of the period Postmenopausal of women.
5 solid reasons why pomegranate is the "Save heart" fruit:
REASON #1: Improves the health condition of the coronary arteries
Several studies have confirmed that pomegranate consumption improves cardio vascular health because reduces atherosclerotic plaques, can prevent its formation and increase the cellular production of nitric oxide (that is a vasodilator natural).
REASON #2: reduces platelet aggregation
Platelet aggregation is the adhesion between platelets, which contributes to the closure of blood vessels.
A study by the University of Rome La Sapienza found that the pomegranate decreases platelet aggregation and decreases the viscosity of the blood, making it more fluid2.
REASON #3: May lower blood pressure
In an Israeli study the researchers concluded that drinking a glass of pomegranate juice a day can lower blood pressure, reduce oxidation of cholesterol (associated with plaque formation) e reduce plaque formation up to -29% in the carotid arteries3 (one of the arteries most subjected to controls through an echo-doppler examination in case of atherosclerotic risk).
... But how many benefits is this pomegranate ... wow, beautiful!
It didn't end there, we said 5 reasons, in fact read more.
REASON #4: Lowers cholesterol
Another study showed that the content rich in antioxidants of pomegranate prevents the oxidation of bad cholesterol (LDL) and therefore reduces the risk that this goes to settle inside the vessels obstructing them.
REASON # 5: Increase the blood supply (thus oxygen) to the heart
An interesting study carried out on patients with coronary artery disease led researchers to conclude that drinking a glass a day pomegranate juice can improve perfusion (theblood supply) in the heart.
A heart with greater blood flow, of course, also has a lower risk of heart attack and it's stronger heart4.
Another elective problem for women is the risk of breast cancer
Pomegranate is a natural preventive aid to counteract training of breast cancer because it acts synergistically in two ways:
- It has anticancer effects attributable to its natural content of anthocyanins (antioxidant pigments), flavonoids and oils that they fight breast cancer in a targeted manner5.
- It acts by naturally balancing the levels of estrogen hormones, thus also preventing estrogen-dependent breast cancer. If, that is, the body produces too many estrogens, the pomegranate lowers its levels and if it produces too few, it increases its production.
It is as if the pomegranate intervened so intelligent on estrogen levels in a circle, automatically bringing them to the healthiest level.
This beneficial effect of the pomegranate has also been confirmed in a study that has in the 2011 compared the effect of pomegranate compared to tamoxifen and estradiol drugs6.
There are other problems that I want to deal with in relation to phytotherapeutic potential and preventive of pomegranate, but these are so numerous and important - even taking into account only female problems - that they are I will continue to deepen them in a subsequent article.
I anticipate you topics that will appear in the next article related to this (maybe they will be even more):
- Premenstrual depression
- Problems associated with pregnancy and childbirth: uterine contractions; protection of the placenta
- For problems of the memory
- Benefits anti obesity
- Protection of skin (if you love sunbathing)
- Viral infections
- Fungal infections
- Protection anti osteoporosis
- Effect antioxidant and anti-aging
- Effect wrinkle
Now, if you're a girl, I ask you: have you read everything?
Did you see that for every problem there is a solution? oh well maybe not always, but for these more markedly feminine problems I listed above nature has given you a great help: the pomegranate.
Then, take advantage of it and don't forget of this information after a few weeks.
Il your power lies in information right and in their own put into practice.
If you are one woman who prefers to protect themselves naturally, the pomegranate is objectively the fruit created for you (I brought you a lot of evidence to support this statement).
Moreover, although often the effective "medicines" are often also bad, on the contrary pomegranate juice is extraordinarily pleasant to drink and its fresh grains (aryl) are very pleasant to eat with both hands on a sunny day.
But please, if you want to take advantage of the benefits listed above, don't rely on a pomegranate juice which you can find at the bar, because at 99% of the time it will be tremendously diluted with water or other less valuable juices and most likely it will be as well sweetened (which goes in the opposite direction of the benefits you have read).
The best thing you can do is use the fresh and organic fruit (a glass every day of its juice or a couple of fruits).
I use the juice pure and organic of pomegranate every morning for breakfast, half a glass of pomegranate and half of coconut water, it's great to start the day!
Remember that everything you read here is all the more valid the more you follow one really healthy lifestyle.
No one expects a miracle from the use of a single fruit, but we can expect great improvements in the prevention and in the state of health when there is one synergy between nutrition, lifestyle, physical and mental exercise.
In addition of course to all the corrective aids that i natural remedies they can offer when they are needed (and under the guidance of a doctor experienced in natural therapies).
Which, along with the right lifestyle, dramatically increase the chances of living a life without major health problems, indeed with more energy, vitality and good humor compared to the majority of people who do not implement these principles.
Be one wise person and let yourself be guided by common sense and the desire to improve.
I wish you a vibrant health and well-being!
