Introduction: I hesitated a lot in the beginning before begin to write this article, Why I chose pomegranate juice? And why did not select the other fruit such as apples? Where the truth be said that taking one apple a day keeps going to the doctor. But through my studies of the relationship of pomegranate juice to public health, I was very surprised by the size of scientific articles published about the benefits health of pomegranate juice and this is what encouraged me to write this article. The original home of the pomegranate in Persia and central Asia to the Himalayas north of India, It is also cultivated from time immemorial in the country of the Mediterranean basin. As it introduced by Spanish colonists to North America in the year in 1769 where it is grown in California and Arizona. The pomegranate tree is attractive, medium-sized enterprises, the average height of about 5 meters and lives for many years, begin production after the first year to 15 years, where production begins to decline. The pomegranate tree has attractive flowers; red-orange color and small red shiny leaves with rmahip shape. Pomegranate juice is a naturally rich source of polyphenols and other antioxidants including punicalagin (PA), ellagic acid (EA), gallotannins, anthocyanins (cyanidin, delphinidin and pelargonidin glycosides) and other flavonoids (quercetin, kaempferol and luteolin glycosides). Fresh pomegranate juice has 0.2 - 1% soluble ployphenolic flavonoids. Further more, Fresh pomegranate juice contains 85% water, 10% total sugars, and 1.5% pectin, and ascorbic acid. Pomegranate seeds are a rich source of dietary fiber, pectin, and sugars. Dried pomegranate seeds contain the steroid estrogen estrone and phytoestrogens genistein, daidzein, and coumestrol. Pomegranate also contains amino acids such as glutamic and aspartic acids. In addition to the above, pomegranate juice is also rich with vitamins and minerals such as Vit. E, Vit. C, Vit. B5, Iron, Potassium and calcium. Pomegranate in the Holy Quran and other religions: The Holy Quran mentioned the Pomegranate as one of the blessings and the verses which indicate the power of God Almighty. In the In the Qur'an, pomegranates are named as one of the fruits that will grow in the gardens of paradise. He it is Who sendeth down water from the sky, and therewith We bring forth buds of every kind; We bring forth the green blade from which We bring forth the thick-clustered grain; and from the date-palm, from the pollen thereof, spring pendant bunches; and (We bring forth) gardens of grapes, and the olive and the pomegranate, alike and unlike. Look upon the fruit thereof, when they bear fruit, and upon its ripening. Lo! Herein verily are portents for a people who believe (AL-ANAAM, 99); He it is who produceth gardens trellised and untrellised, and the date-palm, and crops of divers flavour, and the olive and the pomegranate, like and unlike. Eat ye of the fruit thereof when it fruiteth, and pay the due thereof upon the harvest day, and be not prodigal. Lo! Allah loveth not the prodigals (AL-ANAAM, 141). In them will be Fruits, and dates and pomegranates: (AR-RAHMAN, 68). It also considered the pomegranate fruit is also sacred fruit to the great religions of the world as well as the pomegranate was highly appreciated by almost all civilizations of the earth. In Judaism, said the pomegranate as one of the 613 commandments of the Torah, where a symbol of holiness and integrity and fertility, also was used as a decoration in the Temple of Solomon, as a regal symbol for Kings and Queens, and as a decoration on the robes of priests. In Christianity, pomegranate was used as a symbol of

resurrection and eternal life in the Christian arts. Also decorated by the statues of the Holy, Also decorated by the statues of the Holy, it also contains the famous image of the Virgin and Child. In Buddhism, the pomegranate fruit is one of the three holy, and in the legend (Harriti), which was wild and eat children have been cured of evil when the Buddha to give them to eat pomegranate. In Greece, it is traditional to break pomegranates on the ground at weddings and on New Year's. Pomegranate in various ancient civilizations: Regardless of the religions in reverence to the pomegranate, the ancient civilization in the earth looks to the pomegranate with appreciation and consideration, due to the many medical benefits. In ancient Greek civilization, pomegranate was a symbol of life, reproduction and marriage, where entered tales and benefits hacks. In ancient Greece pomegranate was known as the fruit of the dead. In the mythology of ancient Babylonia, pomegranate was considered an agent of resurrection. Ancient Persians believed that pomegranate seeds made their warriors invincible. In China the fruit symbolized longevity. In the ancient Egyptian civilization, they considered him one of the fruits of the Holy, as it was found in many of the paintings in ancient Egyptian temples. In Armenia, the pomegranate fruit is a symbol representing marriage and abundance. Pomegranate slogans in the World Medical authorities: The British Medical Association and three royal medical colleges includes pomegranate in their slogans, this reflects the major importance in the medical practice and conviction of these ancient medical institutions for its benefits. One of these colleges is the slogan of the Royal College of Physicians, the slogan of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the logo of the Royal College of Midwives. The uses of pomegranate in the traditional medicine: Diseases of the digestive system: diarrhea, dysentery, intestinal colic, inflammation of the colon, indigestion, intestinal parasites, especially tapeworms. Diseases of the genital organs: reproductive tract infections, white discharge and excessive menstruation. Diseases of skin and soft tissue: The used of external cortex as an external ointment in cases of allergic skin inflammation, acne, and inflammation of the breast. Cases of anal surgery: prolapse of the rectum and hemorrhoids. Diseases of the eye and ear: ear pain and visual impairment. Oral and dental diseases: inflammation of the gums and dental pain. The uses of pomegranate in the modern medicine: 1. Its effectiveness as an anti-oxidant: Pomegranate juice has antioxidants that are super powerful and beneficial to your heart, mind, bones, and overall health. They're called polyphenols and flavonoids. No other juice or fruit has more of these types of antioxidants than the pomegranate fruit. Researchers have suggested that the antioxidant power of pomegranate is extremely high; pomegranate juice contains nearly three times the antioxidant boost of even green tea. It is also a highly regarded defender against free-radicals in the body. As explained by researchers at

Rice University (1996) antioxidants, such as those found in pomegranate juice, are extremely effective in combating cellular damage which can lead to aging, cancer, and other diseases and illnesses. Antioxidants naturally combat the presence of free-radicals within the body: molecules that cause cellular damage. In vitro and in vivo studies have supported the ability of pomegranate juice to scavenge free radicals and inhibit lowdensity lipoprotein oxidation. 2. Preventive and chemical treatment for cancer: It has been shown that pomegranate extract in therapeutic doses caused a natural death of cancer cells (Apoptosis) such as breast cancer, skin cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer, without affecting healthy cells. Pomegranates are the richest source of a natural substance called ellagic acid. According to master herbalist and certified nutritionist Donald Yance in his book HERBAL MEDICINE, HEALING & CANCER, ellagic acid "inhibits cancer formation and is believed to inhibit cancer mutation by latching onto DNA-masking sensitive sites on the genetic material that might otherwise be occupied by harmful chemicals. Yet another study shows the extracts of pomegranate can promote differentiation--the ability of cancer cells to revert to their normal counterparts. It has been used successfully in breast cancer, which has been proven that it suppresses the growth of cancer cells and prevents the spread and increases the rates of natural death of cancer cells. Pomegranate can fight breast cancer by inhibiting aromatase and 17-B-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzymes or have anti-estrogenic activity. Its effectiveness has proven in the treatment and prevention of the prostate cancer, where it suppresses the growth of cancer cells, and interferes with the genetic factors of cancer cells, leading to death at the end. Also scientists noted that pomegranate polyphenols inhibited gene expression in androgen-independent prostate cancer cells. Other test-tube and animal studies have indicated that ingredients in pomegranate extracts called ellagitannins can hinder the growth of new blood vessels, which are necessary to nourish prostate tumors. In a 2010 study from the University of Quebec, researchers exposed human prostate cancer cells to 13 compounds present in pomegranates and found that four--Epigallocatechin gallate, delphinidin chloride, kaempferol, and punicic acid, inhibited cell growth stimulated by dihydrotestosterone (DHT). In particular, punicic acid, the main constituent of pomegranate seed, inhibited cell growth. Dr. Hasan Mukhtar and colleagues from the University of Wisconsin have shown that a topically-applied pomegranate fruit extract can block skin tumor formation in mice. Ellagic acid is particularly effective in the inhibition of lung cancer caused by tobacco." Pomegranate also contains the anthocyanidins and proanthocyanidins (flavonoids), which are substances that have been shown in animal and test tube experiments to reduce tumor angiogenesis. Phenylpropanoids, hydrobenzoic acids, flavones and conjugated fatty acids which are present in the pomegranate juice can inhibit a specific protein found in bone marrow responsible for the movement of cancer cells into the bone. 3. Treatment of heart and blood vessels diseases: In a study released by John Hopkins Medical Center (2009), researchers found that

pomegranate juice "can reduce the progression of atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries by inhibiting the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. The pomegranate juice also appears to stimulate the production of nitric oxide, a chemical that helps blood vessels relax. Diabetes patients who drank pomegranate juice had a reduced risk for arteriosclerosis and a reduced uptake of "bad" cholesterol. In another study, pomegranate juice consumption decreased LDL susceptibility to aggregation and retention and increased the activity of serum paraoxonase (a molecule that can protect against lipid peroxidation) by 20%. Pomegranate juice consumption significantly reduced the size of arterial plaque. Professor Aviram and his research group further showed that pomegranate juice could significantly lower the systolic blood pressure of hypertensive patients in just two weeks. Consumption of pomegranate juice for 2 weeks by hypertensive subjects significantly decreased systolic blood pressure. Pomegranate juice also has been reported to decrease the amount of stress-induced myocardial ischemia in subjects with coronary heart disease after 3 months of consumption. The polyphenols contained in pomegranate juice (PJ) are hydrolyzed tannins, such as ellagitannins and anthocyanins, but PJ is also rich in sugar and organic acids, are able to inhibit platelet activation, preventing cerebro- and cardiovascular disease 4. Antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects: Pomegranate has also shown to possess anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. The barks of the tree and root have been used in traditional medicine to eliminate tapeworms. Liquid extract of pomegranate found to be effective in the destruction of bacteria S. mutans, known to cause cavities, S. aureus, the most common cause of staph infections, and B. cereus, a common cause of food poisoning and also inhibit the spread of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. Biological activities of standardized ellagic acid-rich pomegranate rind extracts In addition, ellagic acid also has other benefits; it has anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, anti-cancer properties. 5. Pomegranate juice prevent Alzheimer's disease and improve the nerves: It is proven that polyphenols (found in pomegranate juice) are neuroprotective. Therefore, diet can affect the risk of Alzheimer's disease. American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (2006) said that a daily glass of antioxidant-rich pomegranate juice may halve the build-up of harmful proteins linked to Alzheimer's disease. Pomegranate juice is high in fiber and has substantial amounts of potassium which is important in sending nerve impulses as well as releasing energy from protein, fat, and carbohydrates during metabolism. Another study found that pomegranate juice can able to reduce 50% accumulation of beta-amyloid in the brain. Beta-amyloid protein is believed to play a major role in the development of Alzheimer's disease.

6. Pomegranate juice improve erectile dysfunction: Researchers believe that the potent antioxidant content of pomegranate juice can prevent free radical molecules from disrupting proper circulatory function and help

increase blood flow to the penis leads to erections. Drinking 250ml of pomegranate juice a day may help manage erectile dysfunction and impotence. The juice of Pomegranate is the active source of Vitamin C, Vitamin B5, Vitamin E, iron, calcium, potassium, and antioxidant polyphenols, such contents can increase the amount of blood in the body and to regulate the blood flow to the all parts in the body. It has been determined that taking a regular dose of pomegranate will increase the blood flow around the body, in particular to the penis area. Its powerful antioxidants help to keep the blood vessels functioning optimally. It preserves the nitric oxide in the blood vessels of the penis which keeps the penis tissue relaxed and allows increased blood flow into the region. This increased amount of blood in the penis gives a stronger and much longer lasting erection. 7. Pomegranate juice improve sperm quality and count: The antioxidants in pomegranates particularly punicalagin play a role in sperm health because sperm are especially susceptible to oxidative damage due to the high concentration of polyunsaturated fatty acids involved in regulating sperm maturation and spermatogenesis. Researchers found that pomegranate juice increased the production of antioxidants in the sperm, which improved its quality, and also resulted in a slight increase in testosterone levels, which they attributed to the antioxidant effect of the juice.

8. Pomegranate juice improve skin and delay ageing: Foods rich in antioxidants may improve skin and delay the effects of ageing, and pomegranates in particular may play a role due to their very high levels of antioxidants. Pomegranate has 20% more antioxidants than orange, apple or cranberry juice. Pomegranate juice not only captures free radicals, it can also prevent inflammation, which is the main cause of premature aging. The pomegranate may contribute to the thickening of the epidermis and help with anti-aging. Extracts of pomegranate have been shown to provide nutritional support for fibroblasts cells in the skins dermis. Fibroblasts produce collagen and elastin, the critical structure fibers that provide the skin with support and flexibility. Pomegranate seed oil is commonly used in cosmetic products to revitalize dull or mature skin, assist with wrinkles, and to soothe minor skin irritations. Korean scientists found that ellagic acid, found in pomegranates, counteracts the breaking down of collagen thereby preventing premature aging and wrinkling of the skin.

9. Pomegranate juice prevent osteoarthritis: A study published in the September 2005 issue of the journal of nutrition suggests that that extracts from pomegranate fruit may slow cartilage degradation in osteoarthritis. According to researchers at Case Western Reserve

University School of Medicine (Cleveland, Ohio), the study examined the effect of pomegranate fruit extract on Interleukin - 1b, a proinflammatory protein molecule that plays a role in cartilage degradation in osteoarthritis. The Interleukin protein molecules create an excessive production of inflammatory molecules including matrix metalloproteases (MMP). When excessive levels of MMP are produced in a disease state, such as osteoarthritis, they degrade the cartilage which results in joint damage and destruction. Results of the study indicate that pomegranate fruit extracts inhibit the overproduction of MMP enzymes in human cartilage cells. An abstract of the article in the Journal of Nutrition (Volume 135:2096-2102) can be accessed One of the most helpful health benefits of pomegranate syrup is its ability to strengthen cartilage and prevent osteoarthritis which can definitely lead to a pain free life. Because of the anti-inflammatory action of pomegranate juice, it is also thought to prevent osteoarthritis by slowing cartilage deterioration. Inflammation causes joint-cushioning cartilage to break down, generating tremendous pain and disability. They reported that pomegranate extract inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage and reduces the amount of inflammatory products released from tissues. Punicalagin is an antioxidant found in pomegranate that acts as an active principle in reducing the risk of arthritis by delaying the process of cartilage loss. 10. Pomegranate improves fertility: Pomegranates are high in Vitamin C and fiber, and contain the minerals iron, potassium and calcium. Other nutrients include Vitamin A, Vitamin E and folic acid. It is regarded as a symbol of health, fertility and rebirth. Pomegranate has been shown in clinical studies to improve and balance the estrogen and progesterone levels and enhance nurturing energy. 11. Pomegranate boosts immunity: The pomegranate juice is rich in vitamin C which helps to increase immunity powers immensely. The antioxidants in the juice boost immunity, and increase resistance to diseases, specially TB and cancer. Studies have shown that the pomegranate can be used to treat cancers of the lung, prostrate and breast. Pomegranates have a great amount of vitamin C, which increases your immunity against the common infection such as flu, colds, bleeding gums, wounds that won't heal, just to name a few.
