Scientists from the University of Edinburgh (Scotland) found another extremely useful property of pomegranate juice.

As it turned out, this amazing product has the ability to lower the amount of fatty acids in the blood, which are the main cause of excess fatty deposits in the abdomen.

To give evidence of this, scientists conducted an experiment in which 24 women and men took part. These people drank half a liter of juice for one month a day.

As a result of the experiment it was found that about half of the volunteers had a low propensity to develop fatty "deposits" in the abdomen, and more than 90 percent of the subjects had significantly lowered blood pressure, which in turn reduced the risk of attacks of heart disease, stroke and kidney disease .

Hence, one thing follows, if there is an irresistible desire for a short period of time to lose five or six kilograms of excess weight without harming one's health-include 400-500 milligrams of pomegranate juice in the daily diet. However, here there is a warning for people suffering from gastritis - pomegranate juice should be diluted with boiled or mineral water, in a proportion of one to one.
