PoMMax Pomegranate Extract
Full-Spectrum Pomegranate Fruit Extracts
75% Polyphenols, 15% Punicalagins & 2.5% Ellagic Acid
Botanical source: the whole fruits of Punica granatum L.
Chemical constituents: The fruit of Pomegranate is rich in potent polyphenolic
antioxidants, particularly ellagitannins: Punicalagins, Punicalin,
and Gallic Acid, etc. Punicalagins are unique polyphenols that are
found most abundantly in Pomegranate juice. They are therefore
viewed as ideal markers for Pomegranate derived products.
Punicalagins are metabolized into Ellagic Acid after consumption,
and they are considered to be an 'adoptic' precursor for Ellagic
Acid, which is only present at low levels (around 1%) as free
Ellagic Acid in Pomegranate fruit. Pomegranate extracts with high
levels of Ellagic Acid (20%-80%) are generally achieved by adding
purified Ellagic Acid from other sources to the extract.
Pharmacology and clinicals: Pomegranate fractions with Ellagic Acid have been extensively
studied and noted for their strong anti-cancer and antioxidant
activities [1-4]. However, being insoluble in water, Ellagic Acid
can only be absorbed and utilized by human body after consumption
of Punicalagins as one of their metabolites . It has also been
suggested that the anti-cancer and antioxidant benefits of
Pomegranate reported by numerous studies derive from the
synergistic effects of the full spectrum of components found in the
whole fruit, rather than just the Ellagic Acid or other isolated
pure chemicals alone [2-4].
Analytical specifications: ProfileProven Full-Spectrum Pomegranate fruit extract is
controlled to contain the key compounds present in a whole
Pomegranate fruit according to the ideal proportion set by nature
to ensure the 100% benefit of the fruit. The content of Total
Polyphenols (> 75%) is tested by Folin-Ciocalteau method, and
the potencies of Punicalagins (> 15%) and Ellagic acid (>
2.5%) are determined and HPLC analysis. Good Manufacturing Practice
(GMP) and standardization of active principals of product ensure
that all batches meet specifications.
