Safety of Pomegranate (POMELLA® Extract) Revealed

A new study evaluating the safety of POMELLA® Extract has been accepted in peer review by the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology.

The study concluded that the no-observed-adverse-effect level (NOAEL) of POMELLA® Extract is 600 mg/kg/day—the highest dose tested—which is exponentially higher than the recommended daily dosage of POMELLA. The study tested several doses of the clinically researched, punicalagins-standardized pomegranate extract over a 90-day period.

“As one of the first systematic safety studies performed on a commercial pomegranate extract, this study breaks new ground in our long-term commitment to ensure the safety and efficacy of our products,” said Blake Ebersole, Technical Director of Verdure Sciences.

POMELLA® Extract is the patent-pending, all-natural pomegranate extract manufactured under cGMP, ISO-9000:2001, HACCP standards; is Kosher- and Halal-certified and GMO-free; and now available in USDA Certified Organic forms.
