Punicic Acid Prevents Obesity and Insulin Resistance

Punicic Acid comes from the Pomegranate

According to the latest research, Pomegranate Seed Oil, a rich source of Punicic Acid, prevents diet-induced obesity and insulin resistance.

And considering that you can’t walk down the street without bumping into diet-induced obesity and insulin resistance, let’s hope the research bears fruit.


Lab mice were fed either a high-fat diet or a high-fat diet with 1% pomegranate seed oil for 12 weeks in an attempt to induce obesity and insulin resistance.

After 12 weeks, the mice who ate the pomegranate seed oil were not only leaner than their non-Pom cousins, they actually had improved their insulin sensitivity.

And while this is just the first in a long line of studies required before any potential pomegranate seed oil based drugs hit the market, it’s a good first step. .
Note: If you don’t want to wait on any further research, it is possible to buy organic pomegranate seed oil right now. .
