POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice May Improve Erectile Dysfunction, Maybe by Increasing Nitric Oxide
Beneficial effects on erectile dysfunction (ED)
In 2007, research was published in the International Journal of Impotence Research. It found that drinking 8 ounces of POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice daily was found to have beneficial effects on erectile dysfunction (ED), a disorder that affects 1 in 10 men all over the world and 10 to 30 million men in the United States alone.
ED can be caused by a lot of factors, such as arterial plaque, harding of the arteries, high blood pressure, heart disease, atherosclerosis, mental, or emotional issues, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, nerve damage, endocrine imbalance or depression. This list goes on and on.
Smoking is a major cause of erectile dysfunction and medications may also cause erectile dysfunction. Ultimately, erectile dysfunction is a condition that affects the blood flow to the penis during sexual stimulation. Without the blood flow, there will be no erection.
This randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, pilot study examined the efficacy of pomegranate juice versus a placebo in improving erections in 61 male subjects.
Mild erectile dysfunction is defined as the mildly decreased ability to get and keep an erection, while moderate erectile dysfunction is the slightly decreased ability to get and keep an erection. The majority of men with erectile dysfunction have moderate ED.
The mild erectile dysfunction typically is a situation where a patient can obtain an erection and maintain it for a matter of time but it may not be of satisfactory firmness or hardness. Severe dysfunction is when a patient cannot get an erection at all. The severity of the problem is a subjective matter. Some may be quite satisfied with an erection quality that would make others very unhappy.
Although the study did not achieve overall statistical significance, they feel that additional studies with more patients and longer treatment periods may in fact reach statistical significance. The indications of this pilot study are encouraging because almost half of the subjects experienced a benefit simply by adding pomegranate juice to their daily diet, and no little blue pills.
According to study co-author Harin Padma-Nathan, MD, FACS, FRCS, and Clinical Professor of Urology at the Keck School of Medicine, at the University of Southern California, “These findings are very encouraging as they suggest there is a non-invasive, non-drug way to potentially alleviate this quality of life issue that affects so many men. For men with ED, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise. Drinking pomegranate juice daily could be an important addition to the diet in the management of this condition.”
In other studies on LDL, inflammation and nitric oxide::
Laboratory studies have concluded that pomegranate juice can help maintain the health of blood vessels by several collaborating mechanisms:
1) Reversing a process called low-density lipoprotein oxidation. LDL is the major protein responsible for carrying cholesterol in your blood and depositing cholesterol in the walls of blood vessels. The level of oxidized LDL in blood is materializing as a leading risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
2) Cutting down the inflammation in the endothelial cells, which create the linings of blood vessels. Inflammatory cells are called macrophages, they are found in the walls of your arteries, they accumulate cholesterol and deposit it in the vessel wall, initiating a process which is a major step in hardening of the arteries called atherosclerosis. Pomegranate juice seems to prevent this type of inflammation and impedes atherosclerosis.
3) Increasing the levels of nitric oxide, a chemical that keeps your blood flowing and your arteries supple and flexible. Many types of stress and arterial plaque impairs your blood vessels' ability to make nitric oxide. Pomegranate juice can reduced nitric oxide.
