POM Pomegranate Juice

My parents' house used to have a pomegranate tree and I remembered my siblings and I used to pluck the pomegranate fresh from the tree and eat it. It was fun time back then where all kinds of fruit tree can be found at my parents' yard and we just ate from what we grew. Pomegranate tree is very common is Asia where the weather is hot all year round. But when I moved here, it was pretty scarce and those carried in the supermarket can be quite pricey as it's hardly go on sales. Then, POM came along and made this 100% pure concentrated Pomegranate juice. For me, it is easier to drink the juice then eat the fruit itself (tedious don't you think?).

What is so wonderful about this Pomegranate juice is its' antioxidant potency, where better than green tea, cranberry juice, red wine, concord grape juice and blueberry juice. Not only that, it also proved in a $25 million scientific research that by drinking 8 oz. of 100% pomegranate juice daily, one can experience significant improvement in heart (increase blood flow, decrease arterial plaque, lower LDL oxidation), prostate and erectile health.

Thus far, the only brand that can guaranteed to contain 100% authentic pomegranate juice is POM Wonderful where they grow their own fruit, pick it by hand, squeeze it with their own proprietary presses and even manufacture their own bottles all the way in California's Sunny Joaquin Valley. Their juice is all-natural with no added sugars, preservatives, colors or cheap filler juices. I saw the interview on T.V. about POM Wonderful Pomegranate Juice before but I forgot which station already. They definitely trying to create and raise awareness about this wonderful juice. I found this juice to be on the strong side so I had to dilute it with ices.
Drink for our health ya!

Never tried the pomegranate juice before. What we normally do is just take the pomegranate fruit directly.

Hi Anon,
You can get it at WalMart or other grocery stores in the refrigerator section where they put fruit juice.

Haha noobcook, actually I don't eat the whole seed, I only eat the outer color part. :P Do people eat the whole seed? Now you make me wonder.
