Brief Summary:
Diabetes is a highly atherogenic disease. Pomegranate juice has impressive antioxidant properties. It has been proven to decrease oxidant stress and to cause the regression of atherosclerotic plaques in hypercholestrolemic and diabetic patients.Furthermore it has been proven to potentiate the biologic activity of the enzyme paraoxonase 1 which is very important in preventing atherosclerosis. The study will try to prove that a polyphenolic extract from pomegranate (POMx) has the same desired effects.
