Research has shown that pomegranate juice inhibits prostate cancer in mice. Here’s what we know about pomegranate juice and prostate cancer.
A 2005 study done at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences also found that PSA markers were lower in mice given pomegranate juice.
It was the first published study to show the potential prostate cancer inhibiting effects of pomegranate juice.
A more recent study published in 2008 found that pomegranate extract reduced the size of prostate cancer tumors in mice by inhibiting the growth of new blood vessels that help the tumors grow.
