Antioxidant benefits of POM Wonderful 100% pomegranate juice top red wine, grape and acai juices

LOS ANGELES (February 28, 2008) A recent study published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry found that pomegranate juice from the California-grown Wonderful variety of pomegranate is the leader in the healthy beverage category by demonstrating the most complete free radical scavenging activity, greater protection of LDL-cholesterol from oxidation, and the highest polyphenol content compared to red wine and several juices.

What is important about this study is that all the beverages included were run against several tests resulting in a more complete assessment of a beverages antioxidant activity and capability.

Results of the study showed that POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice had the greatest range of free radical fighting ability. The antioxidant potency composite index was at least 20% greater than any other beverage included in the study.
