SeekinTruth said:Some interesting data. Thanks for sharing. Might be worth looking into further as time permits (such as which bacteria are needed to get the benefits, etc.).
Yeah, I hope that they will continue with the research.
Pomegranates are big in my country - a national symbol, even.
I just wondered yesterday where do they grow.

I don't know. But some people say that pomegranate tea is good against parasites:
Pomegranate (Punica granatum) is a traditional treatment for tapeworm. Its bark contains an alkaloid called pelletierine that has a paralytic effect on the parasite, making it easy to expel. According to herbalist Henriette Kress, you can prepare the bark as a tea and drink it for several days, until the entire parasite is expelled. Take a laxative before and during this process to aid in eliminating the tapeworm. Pomegranate bark may cause vomiting and, in high doses, it will depress the central nervous system. Consult an herbalist or medical professional before taking pomegranate bark. Do not take this herb if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
And if you have already got mitophagy started using resistance training, ketosis, cold showers etc, is there any benefit?
I don't know, but is supposed to boost your mitophagy, so perhaps you would get double boost in that case?
Personally I've noticed pomegranate is one of the things I can eat sparingly without any trouble, maybe this helps explain why. Apples, if absolutely fresh are another - but slightly old fruit can be a big mistake. I like the pomegranate kombucha.
I never had a problem with pomegranates, but I had never eaten them continually. But I will try them this season and see if I can feel any changes.
