Pomegranate extract features high-potency synergistic compound
IRVINE, CA—PomActiv Forte™, a novel, proprietary compound featuring a distinctive naturally occurring combination of potent polyphenols, is new from Cyvex Nutrition, a leader in the antioxidant category.
“Science continues to demonstrate that naturally occurring antioxidants found in an abundance of foods confers statistically significant health attributes,” says Charlene Lee, MBA, marketing director for Cyvex Nutrition. “Today’s active consumer lifestyle leaves little time and inclination to obtain the necessary doses of antioxidants from freshly prepared foods; therefore, the convenience of high-dose antioxidant supplements has never been more attractive to individuals who want to enjoy health and well-being.”
PomActiv Forte™ is an advanced extract, a potent antioxidant resulting from the synergistic effects of complexed punicosides, including punicalagin and free ellagic acid. The synergy of these two types of ellagitannins found only in pomegranate enhances the antioxidant capacity. (J Nutr Bioch, 2005;16 (6) 360-7). “We know that this distinguished combination makes PomActiv Forte™ one of the most powerful pomegranate extracts on the market,” Lee says.
Pomegranates (Punica granatum) have been consumed for millennia. Now, contemporary science has suggested its phytochemical profile may beneficially affect inflammation, oxidation of low-density lipoproteins and tumor growth. Pomegranate juice consumption for three years by patients with carotid artery stenosis effectively reduced LDL oxidation and blood pressure (Clin Nutr 2004, 23 (3):423-33). Studies have also demonstrated the therapeutic potential of pomegranate extracts for suppressing a variety of cancers like breast, skin, and colon cancers (Breast Cancer Res. Treat., 2002, 71:203-217). Pomegranate extracts also potently suppress growth of human prostate cancer cells (J Med Food, 2004; 7 (3):274-83).
PomActiv Forte™ joins Cyvex Nutrition’s Red Antioxidant Team, which also includes PomActiv™ pomegranate extract, BioVin® full-spectrum grape extract and BerryVin™ high-ORAC berry powder.
