Pomegranate juice could reduce workplace stress
Monday 06 June 2011
Pomegranate juice could reduce stress in the workplace, according to new research.
The study found that having the drink every day resulted in lower stress hormones and a reduction in blood pressure.
Researchers at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, studied the physiological effect of daily consumption of 500ml of Pomegreat Pure pomegranate juice over a two-week period.
They found that all 60 volunteers - from a range of working environments - reported being more enthusiastic and less distressed after having the drink.
Dr Emad Al-Dujaili, who led the study, said: "On the basis of these findings there is a justified argument for busy workers to drink pomegranate juice to help alleviate chronic stress and maintain good health.
"There is a growing body of evidence that pomegranate juice delivers wide-ranging health benefits that merit further research.
"It is very rare indeed for an all-natural juice to offer the range of health benefits that we are seeing in pomegranate juice."
The study was funded by the Pomegreat drinks company.
