Vincard is a pomegranate (Punica granatum) rind extract, one of the most powerful nutrient dense food supplement, for overall good health. Clinical findings clearly showed a correlation between pomegranate compounds and their positive effect on cardiovascular, nervous, and skeletal health. A compound found only in pomegranate called punicalagin is shown to benefit the heart and blood vessels. Punicalagins are extremely powerful antioxidants found in the juice and peel of a pomegranate. It not only lowers cholesterol, but also lowers blood pressure and increases the speed at which heart blockages (atherosclerosis) melt away. Pomegranate has potent anti-inflammatory properties, which are largely mediated by the antioxidant properties of the punicalagins. Pomegranate has been shown to inhibit breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, leukemia and to prevent vascular changes that promote tumor growth in lab animals. Additional studies and clinical trials currently taking place are hopeful to reveal this fascinating effect on humans.
Pomegranate contains phytochemical compounds that stimulate serotonin and estrogen receptors, improving symptoms of depression and increasing bone mass in lab animals. Pomegranate has also been shown to be beneficial in increasing blood flow and erectile response in rabbits. Evidence showed that pomegranate can improve memory in the elderly and post-surgery, and studies in mice suggest that it can protect against Alzheimer’s disease.
