Why Most Doctors Won’t Recommend Eating This Fruit

11373567_sFor all the research performed concerning certain plants and foods, medical experts are often kept on a proverbial leash when it comes to saying anything definitive about the perceived health benefits of these foods.

That’s why you’ll often hear health experts say that certain foods are believed to help with such and such a condition.

The FDA tightly regulates how they promote certain cures. Much of this having to do with their close alliance with drug companies, but you’ll learn more about that in a moment.

Just because they can’t say something explicitly doesn’t mean there isn’t some verifiable truth concerning the food however.

One of those foods is a fruit, the pomegranate fruit.

It’s been a part of ancestral diets for eons, and ancient cultures rightly believed the fruit was great for their health and wealth.

The one thing pomegranate does have behind it is a body of clinical research. So while doctors can’t say that pomegranate will cure any diseases, at least there’s solid evidence to back up the claims that pomegranate is believed to increase health.

So what makes this fruit so special?

Pomegranates contain high amounts of bioflavonoids, polyphenols, and antioxidants, which are compounds with proven benefits to improving health.

In particular pomegranate has a compound known as punicalagin, and in clinical studies this compound has been demonstrated to help both the blood vessels as well as the heart. These same studies have been able to show punicalagin can help lower cholesterol as well as leading to a decrease in blood pressure and even can help reverse atherosclerosis.

That’s pretty remarkable.

Unfortunately if you suffer from any of these conditions your doctor will likely want to place you on a some kind of pharmaceutical before recommending you drink pomegranate juice everyday.

It’s just the way they’ve been trained to work.

But not all doctors are blind to their benefits.

Dr. Joel Furhman noted the following incredible facts about pomegranate:

Recent medical research studied heart patients with severe carotid artery blockages. They were given an ounce of pomegranate juice each day for a year. Not only did study participants’ blood pressure lower by over 12 percent, but there was a 30 percent reduction in atherosclerotic plaque. Just as astounding, participants who did not take the pomegranate juice saw their atherosclerotic plaque increase by 9 percent.

In other studies, potent antioxidant compounds found in pomegranates have shown to reduce platelet aggregation and naturally lower blood pressure, factors that prevent both heart attacks and strokes.

He also noted how well the antioxidants inside of pomegranate were able to fight the growth of cancers, including colon cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, leukemia and even “prevent vascular changes that promote tumor growth in lab animals.”

And even though these incredible facts about pomegranate have been discovered, odds are your doctor won’t recommend consuming pomegranate juice.

And here’s why.

Even though there are numerous studies to support the use of pomegranate as a part of a healthy diet, doctors would prefer you use drugs to medicate.

The reason why is there are countless clinical studies to back up the effectiveness of medicine the medicines they prescribe.

And that makes sense.

Billion dollar pharmaceutical companies can’t patent the pomegranate…if they could, then you bet your doctor would “prescribe them.”

But they can’t so they won’t.

The same is true of the use of probiotics.

If you suffer from health conditions that are a result of poor intestinal health you’ll be prescribed a drug, instead of being advised to reset your gut.

The odds are you currently suffer from a “leaky gut.”

And part of the problem has to do with a parasite that resides deep within your intestine.
