Arthritis: The Healing Power of Pomegranates

By    |   Sunday, 04 October 2015 07:57 PM

Though Greek mythology tells how eating pomegranate seeds entrapped Persephone in the Underworld, doing so might help free arthritis patients from pain and swelling.

The pomegranate fruit is high in antioxidants, according to Mercola.com. Studies show its juice surpasses that of other fruits in potency because it has the most amount of every type of antioxidant.

These antioxidants are good for the body as they get rid of free radicals, which are created in response to environmental toxins and pharmaceutical drugs. The free radicals can be harmful as they contribute to chronic inflammation, Mercola.com reported. For this reason, pomegranates may help to treat rheumatoid arthritis by destroying these free radicals.

Studies also show pomegranates inhibit human mast basophil cells. They contribute to the breakdown of cartilage in joints and also promote swelling of muscle tissues, Underground Health Reporter stated.

Natural Arthritis Treatments said pomegranates may help pain and inflammation in patient with osteoarthritis for similar reasons.

Most notably in the case of OA, pomegranates, when ingested, attack proteins that cause inflammation, according to PureGranate.

Eating Well said that, in some cases, pomegranates may even help to prevent the development of arthritis.

Patients, however, should be wary of drinking too much pomegranate juice because of its high amount of fructose, Mercola.com. Large sugar intakes could eventually cause development of insulin resistance, which is at the root of many diseases, including R.A. – and a reason why many obese individuals have arthritis.

Natural Arthritis Treatments recommended four to six ounces of pomegranate juice a day. Pomegranate extract is also available in capsules, powder, and pills.

The website also noted that the fruit’s juice may interact with some medications including ACE inhibitors, statin groups, and warfarin, so it is therefore suggested patients speak with a doctor before treating arthritis with pomegranates.
