Pomegranates to reduce stress?
Frazzled British workers are being thrown a lifeline today with the news that a glass of pomegranate juice per day will deliver a measurable reduction in their stress hormone levels.
A recent study found that 41% of British workers claim to be stressed or very stressed in their jobs. Researchers at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh studied the physiological effect of daily consumption of 500ml of Pomegreat Pure pomegranate juice over a two-week period. Sixty volunteers from a range of working environments took part in the study.
Research Scientist, Dr Emad Al-Dujaili who led the study said:
“On the basis of these findings there is a justified argument for busy workers to drink pomegranate juice to help alleviate chronic stress and maintain good health.”
Also, for those keen to rid themselves of flab around the belly or a muffin top, an earlier study by Queen Margaret University researchers found that pomegranate juice may redistribute weight around the body.
