Pomegranate Seed Oil (60 softgels)
SKU: SUPPLEMENTS.:Pomegranate Seed Oil
Pomegranate Seed Oil delivers 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 Extracts:*
Pomegranate Seed Oil contains two types of pomegranate extract. It combines a supercritical extraction 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 for breast and prostate tissue, colon cellular
health, and strong blood vessels and arteries.*†
• Fruit Extract: Protects against the risk of oxidative stress and damage to DNA with polyphenol antioxidant
compounds to support healthy cellular replication throughout the body.*

Frequently Asked Questions
Together, the pomegranate fruit extract and supercritical seed oil 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.*
Omega-5 (punicic acid) supports healthy cells in many of the body's critical systems. That includes supporting healthy aromatase, estrogen, and PSA (prostate specific antigen) levels† for breast and prostate health, gut mucosa and probiotic activity for colon health, blood sugar balance†, and arterial flexbility for cardiovascular health.*
Omega-5 fatty acid can be difficult to obtain through your diet. Pomegranate seed oil is the best plant source.
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 extraction 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.
