Pomegranates are an ancient Mediterranean fruit which have recently been recognized as one of the many "new" super foods offering a myriad of health benefits. Pomegranates are rich in antioxidants, which are natural compounds that protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.

The concentrated antioxidants found in this amazing red fruit can actually promote and support proper cellular behavior when abnormal cells begin to wreak havoc in the body, especially for men. Read my general diet recommendations for a complete guide on other healthy foods rich in essential antioxidants.

A new study lead by Michael Carducci, MD, professor of oncology and urology at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutes, shows the remarkable benefits of pomegranate for encouraging the health of prostate cells. The study is preliminary and supports previous research on the positive effects of pomegranate extract and juice on prostate health.

The new study involved 92 men with abnormal prostate cells that had not spread outside the prostate, accompanied by rising PSA levels. Rising levels of PSA (prostate-specific antigen) are a sign of abnormal prostate conditions. The men took either one capsule containing 1 gram of pomegranate extract or three pomegranate capsules daily. At the start of the study, the menís PSA levels were doubling every 12 months. After six months of taking the capsules, it took 19 months for their PSA levels to double. The results were not significantly better for those taking more than one capsule daily. Carducci credits antioxidants in the pomegranate for the positive cellular effects seen in the study.

Research continues to demonstrate the value of natural compounds, such as those found in pomegranates, for use in conjunction with standard medical treatments. For more valuable information about prostate health and treatment optionsFind Article, download a complimentary wellness guide.
