Why I take pomegranate juice each day 06/06/2011

A phase II trial compared 1mg/day POMx capsule to 3mg/day POMx capsules in men with rising PSA without metastases after first-line therapy.

POMx capsules are made from POM Wonderful pomegranates.

"The average (median) PSADT was 11.9 months at baseline (range, 1.6 to 54.6 months) compared to 18.5 months (range, 2 to 1,523 months) after treatment (p < 0.001).

There was no significant treatment difference in effect on PSADT between the two dose groups (p = 0.920).

Declining PSA levels were observed in 13/104 patients (13 percent) during the study.

No significant changes in serum testosterone levels were observed in either group."

My treatment:

Because POMx capsules are not available in Australia, or for purchase from Australia, I take 250ml of POM Wonderful pomegranate juice per day.

POM Wonderful pomegranate juice is available in some Woolworths stores in several sizes. It is available in Coles online store, but not in the largest (most economical) size.

I keep LifeExtension Pomegranate Extract Capsules (one of the recommendations by Dr Snuffy Myers) on hand for those times (like traveling) when the juice is not available.

Note: I am not a doctor.

These are my notes for my interest.
