Updated: Jun 21, 2023

Pomegranate juice, an ally in stabilizing type 2 diabetes


Organic pomegranate juice is a product that is becoming increasingly popular in the food industry due to its vitality benefits. Researchers have investigated the beneficial properties of organic pomegranate juice on the stabilisation of type 2 diabetes. (1,2)


Type 2 diabetes is a common health problem worldwide, affecting millions of people. It is often caused by poor diet and lack of physical activity, and can lead to serious long-term health complications. However, recent research has shown that organic pomegranate juice may help stabilise type 2 diabetes and prevent complications, provided that the manufacturing process does not distort the pomegranate juice. (3,4,5,6).

Several studies have examined the effects of pomegranate juice on type 2 diabetes, and the results have been promising. A study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food found that drinking organic pomegranate juice for 12 weeks had a beneficial effect on blood glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes (7-9). The researchers noted a significant improvement in fasting blood glucose levels and insulin sensitivity in the participants (2).


Another study (10) has shown that regular consumption of organic pomegranate juice may help prevent complications of type 2 diabetes. In this study, published in the Journal of Nutrition, researchers administered organic pomegranate juice to mice with type 2 diabetes. They found that the pomegranate juice had a protective effect on the mice's kidneys, which is important because kidney problems are a common complication of diabetes.


The biochemical mechanisms behind the beneficial effects of organic pomegranate juice on type 2 diabetes are not fully understood, but studies have suggested several possible mechanisms. For example, studies have shown that the antioxidants in pomegranate juice may help reduce inflammation in the body, which is important because chronic inflammation can contribute to the development of diabetes (11,12,13).

Pomegranate juice: a natural way to stabilise type 2 diabetes


In summary, the polyphenols in pomegranate juice may help stabilise type 2 diabetes by increasing insulin sensitivity, regulating glucose metabolism, reducing inflammation and protecting the beta cells of the pancreas. In addition, organic pomegranate juice can help improve insulin sensitivity, which is essential for blood glucose regulation. Studies have shown that pomegranate juice may help increase glucose intake by muscle cells, which can help maintain healthy glucose levels in the body (14,15).


However, it is important to note that the current studies were conducted on small samples of human volunteers and that further research is needed to better understand the beneficial effects of organic pomegranate juice on type 2 diabetes. In addition, it is important to note that organic pomegranate juice is not a substitute for prescribed medication for the treatment of diabetes and that diabetic patients should consult their physician before consuming pomegranate juice or any other nutritional supplement.


Pomegranate juice on the menu for diabetics


Incorporating organic pomegranate juice into a balanced diet may be an effective preventive nutrition strategy to help stabilise type 2 diabetes and improve cardiovascular health. More research is needed to establish more precise recommendations on how much organic pomegranate juice should be consumed to achieve health benefits. However, as a natural food rich in antioxidants and nutrients, organic pomegranate juice can be a healthy addition to a balanced diet to prevent various diseases (16-17)
