Is Punicic Acid Good for You?

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

Punicic acid is a poly-saturated fatty acid. You can find this acid in snake gourd and pomegranate seed oil. The therapeutic and medicinal benefits are continuously being investigated and tested. Punicic acid has been demonstrated to be effective in treating several chronic illnesses such as macular degeneration, dementia, and Alzheimer's in laboratory experiments. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

The anti-inflammatory properties of punicic acid protect against a variety of health-damaging agents, including pathogenic microorganisms, cancerous cells, and free radicals.

Punicic acid reportedly has a number of health benefits, including supporting heart health, a natural aphrodisiac, fighting cancer, protecting the skin from environmental and UV damage, promoting skin health, increasing immunity, treating arthritis, improving memory, promoting weight loss, and promoting healthy hair growth.

Improves Memory

Punicic acid contains a lot of polyphenols, and evidence-based studies and alternative medicine use statistics to show that polyphenols may help prevent surgery-induced memory loss for a long time. Studies show frequent use of punicic acid helped postpone the development and progression of dementia.

Good for Skin Health

Punicic acid is high in antioxidants, which protect the skin from free radical damage, heal damaged and aging skin, and increase collagen synthesis. It helps control sebum production, reducing the appearance of blackheads and pimples on the skin.

Weight Loss

Punicic acid has been demonstrated in lab rats to be particularly effective in reducing harmful fats in the body. Punicic acid's flavonoids lower cholesterol levels in the body, resulting in weight loss.

Good for Arthritis Treatment

Punicic acid can be helpful in treating arthritis, and it is high in antioxidants known as flavonoids, which have anti-inflammatory qualities.

Oral intake of it has been shown in animal studies to significantly decrease joint pain and inflammation. It also reduced the intensity of arthritis symptoms. After consulting your doctor, you may add punicic acid supplements to your diet if you're suffering from arthritis.

Repairs the Skin 

Punicic acid's most beneficial advantage is that it not only protects aged and sun-damaged skin from getting further damaged but it also helps the skin regenerate itself. It gives the appearance of firmer, younger skin to dull, aging skin.

It increases the number of keratinocyte cells, which thicken the skin and improve its protective barrier against UV radiation and other harsh environmental factors. You can fairly state that punicic acid acts as an anti-aging therapy from inside the body and outside. Using it on the skin gives UV protection and also boosts skin vitality, and fights wrinkles and sun damage.

Supports Heart Health

Punicic acid helps in the regulation of the body's cholesterol levels, preventing heart disease caused due to increased cholesterol levels. It also regulates blood pressure.
