This fruit is known for its regenerative properties and multiple health benefits, but few know that it is even capable of reducing cancer risk, increasing longevity and can kill coronavirus up to 80% within 5 minutes, according to studies.

The properties of the pomegranate were tested on fruit flies with impressive results. One study found that the juice of this red fruit prolonged the life of male and female flies by 18% and 8%, respectively.

The study also found that the flies that consumed the juice were physically active for a long period of time. It was concluded that the drink not only contributes to increasing longevity but also increases physical resistance.

Other research also showed very good results. Scientists have discovered that pomegranates contain a substance called urolithin A, the first and only known compound that can restore mitochondria.

Mitochondria generate energy within our cells, but as they age, they become less efficient and even possibly toxic. Old mitochondria are recycled by the cell and converted into new mitochondria, known as mitophagy. With age, this recycling process slows down, which can lead to muscle weakness.

A recent clinical trial showed that urolithin A, a compound derived from biomolecules found in fruits like pomegranate, could slow down this process by improving the functioning of mitochondria. In this way, aging will also be stopped, says the article published in the journal Nature Metabolism.

Drinking pomegranate juice has also been shown to provide a buffer against the world’s deadliest diseases. The juice offers protection against cancer, for example, prostate cancer

A study at the University of California, Los Angeles, has found that drinking 8 ounces (or about a glass) of pomegranate juice daily slows the doubling time of PSA – the prostate-specific antigen that is a blood marker for prostate cancer – 15 to 54 months, thus reducing the risk of this type of cancer.

A group of researchers, led by scientists from the Institute of Molecular Virology at the University of Ulm Medical Center, revealed that pomegranate juice (Punica granatum) acts against both viruses, suggesting that mouthwash with these fluids can reduce the viral load in the oral cavity and thus decrease the transmission of the virus.

SARS-CoV-2 was also reduced approximately 80% by pomegranate juice after just one minute of mouth wash.
