Penny Kris-Etherton, a professor from the Evan Pugh University of Nutritional Sciences at Penn State University in University Park, Pennsylvania suggests there are several ways in which the arteries may benefit from pomegranate juice.

The Professor noted that “pomegranates are high in dietary fibre and antioxidants,” which are helpful and useful in lowering inflammation and promoting healthy arteries.

According to Harvard Health, several studies suggest that aside from lowering blood pressure, the juice may also reduce harmful cholesterol.

The results linking pomegranate juice to lower cholesterol levels have been less consistent, however.
