Terry Naturally Europharma – Pomegranate Seed Oil – 60 Softgels
60 Soft gels
Pomegranate Seed Oil provides punicic acid—an (omega-5) fatty acid missing from many diets. The only known botanical source of this crucial fatty acid is pomegranate seed oil. Combined with the high antioxidant value from pomegranate fruit polyphenols, Pomegranate Seed Oil provides a unique—and convenient—combination.*
Cell Protecting Power with TWO types of extract:
Pomegranate Seed Oil contains two types of pomegranate extract. It combines a supercritical extraction of the oil of the seed, the source of omega-5—punicic acid—which is blended with a polyphenol-containing fruit extract for double the benefits. This unique combination is what makes Pomegranate Seed Oil able to provide a variety of health benefits.*
- Supercritical Seed Oil Extract: Supports healthy hormone balance and strong blood vessels and arteries.*
- Fruit Extract: Protects against the risk of oxidative stress.*
Why two types of pomegranate extract?
Both pomegranate fruit and seed oil extracts contain polyphenols, conjugated linolenic acid, punicic acid, and phytosterols. By including both extracts, Pomegranate Seed Oil provides a more complete range of supportive compounds—more than you could likely get from juice alone. In fact, pomegranate fruit and seed oil extracts show some of the strongest support for breast and prostate cellular health.*
How can 2 softgels provide as much antioxidant and cell-protecting power as a 14-ounce glass of pomegranate juice?
Because these extracts are so concentrated, they are able to focus the powerful benefits of pomegranate into a much smaller package. Plus, the seed oil extract contains punicic acid, which shows strong support of breast and prostate cell health. This compound may not be present in the same concentrated power in many juice products.*
What is “supercritical CO2 extraction”?
When the most active and beneficial compounds of a plant have been identified and isolated for use in a dietary supplement or food, that product is called an “extract.” There are a number of different ways to remove these desirable compounds from the plant. Water and alcohol are two of the most well-known and commonly used materials (technically known as “solvents”). In fact, a tea bag in hot water is an example of a water extraction that almost everyone has at some time prepared for themselves. Supercritical CO2, meaning carbon dioxide in a liquid form, is a special type of non-toxic solvent that is particularly good for extracting essential oils without damaging them or causing them to become rancid through oxidation. Supercritical CO2 extract is the preferred method for obtaining a full spectrum essential oil extract, discarding the non-essential fibrous plant material. This process is a cold extraction that uses no heat. Supercritical CO2 yields a very pure extract, with no heavy metals or potential for bacterial growth. Because it evaporates completely there is also no concern about contamination or residue left in the extracted materials.
