Pomegranate juice helps kidney disease patients

Pomegranate juice helps kidney disease patients

Pomegranate juice lowers the cholesterol and blood pressure of kidney patients, according to a study presented to the American Society of Nephrology’s Annual Kidney week.

The  juice is rich in antioxidants and has been touted has having a variety of health benefits.

The researchers gave patients about three and a half ounces of the juice or a placebo, three times a week for a year.

Patients receiving the pomegranate juice were able to reduce the number of blood pressure drugs they were taking by 22pc.

They had healthier blood pressure and cholesterol levels and less plaque build up in their arteries.

These results suggest that drinking pomegranate juice might decrease the high rates of illness and death among kidney disease patients.

The  study was carried out by Lilach Shema in Western Galilee Medical Centre in Israel.
