The beneficial effects of pomegranate are due to the ellagitannins and anthocyanins content, which are protective toward a wide variety of diseases including inflammatory diseases. Research shows pomegranate extracts are a free radical scavenger and a potent antioxidant capacity. They are also reported to possess noteworthy antibacterial, antiviral, hypolipidemic, and anti-inflammatory bioactivities thanks to the polyphenolic compounds content, which includes punicalagins, gallic acid, and ellagic acid derivatives.
Moreover, pomegranate extract and probiotics substantially reduced the triglyceride content and intracellular lipid increase. These results evidenced that a synergistic effect of probiotics and polyphenols contained in pomegranate extract may affect in vitro adipogenesis and may contribute in development of new nutraceutical and probiotic-based remedies to prevent and to treat obesity.
