Carotec's PomaPur has studies supporting cardiovascular boosting, immune supporting, digestive health improving, muscle-boosting/recovery during exercise, and hair growing benefits. Plus, in conjunction with hydroxytyrosol (found in our Olive Power), PomaPur supports endothelial function.
PomaPur has significant clinical evidence supporting health benefits and an actual basis for why it earns the name Pur that we will address below.
Carotec's PomaPur is sourced from Euromed's Organic , 30% punicalagins.
Fraud in pomegranate: Many other pomegranate products contain cheap adulterated ingredients. The situation is so bad that reputable botanical organizations issued a warning guidance under their "Botanical Adulterants Prevention Program."
In a scientific white paper, authors warned "Pomegranate has rapidly become one of the most popular 'healthy' fruits, with an array of extracts appearing in the botanical dietary supplement markets and a plethora of juice products in the beverage industry. There is considerable evidence that both product categories have been subjected to adulteration with various undeclared, lower-cost exogenous ingredients... Possibly driven by supply/demand issues and/ or economic incentives, such fraudulent products deprive consumers of the health benefits of pomegranate." (emphasis added).
Carotec's PomaPur is standardized to 30% punicalagins, which are important polyphenols. Punicalagins are ellagitannins containing , which is a polyphenol that protects plants against UV light, viruses, bacteria and parasites.
Ellagic acid, as a supplement ingredient, has poor bio-availability in the body. Punicalagins are bioavailable in humans. Once ingested, punicalagins, release ellagic acid that partly go to plasma and in part metabolized by the stomach flora to the urolithins (helping support gastro-intestinal health as a prebiotic).
We have known about the benefits of ellagic acid for years but knew of its short comings as an isolated ingredient. Adulterated pomegranate products have unusually high amounts of ellagic acid which are added to the extract: PomaPur has a high amount of punicalagins, again, which the converts to ellagic acid in the body.
What we have found is that unscrupulous pomegranate products will spike pomegranate extracts with cheap sources of useless ellagic acid to confuse testing laboratories and ultimately consumers into thinking they are getting a true pomegranate extract.
Carotec's PomaPur's chemistry closely matches that of pomegranate juice, without excess sugar or calories.
PomaPur is made correctly, from start to finish: organically grown pomegranates are grown in the Mediterranean regions of Spain under strict quality control. The pomegranates undergo a patented eco-friendly extraction process using ultrapure water (no solvents).
PomaPur each capsule provides:
- 600 mg Organic Pomegranate Extract (Pomanox®)
- 30 plant-based capsules per bottle
