Pomegranate juice helps kidney patients on dialysis

The health benefits of pomegranate juice just get better and better

The health benefits of pomegranate juice just get better and better. The juice lowers cholesterol levels and blood pressure, and researchers have discovered this week that it can help kidney patients on dialysis combat infections and heart problems.
The researchers, from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, tested it on a group of 101 dialysis patients, who were given the juice or a placebo drink three times a week for a year.
The pomegranate juice group suffered fewer inflammatory problems, and they were less likely to need hospital care for infections.
The juice is a powerful antioxidant and infection-fighter, say the researchers.
