From the farm to standardized extract, each part of the process is met with strict quality assurance and control parameters, botanical integrity, and traceability and sustainability measures held in high esteem to ensure a consistent ingredient with clinical backing for the global market.
How Pomella® Started
For more than a decade, Verdure Sciences® has proudly offered Pomella® pomegranate extract to the global marketplace. This patented Punica granatum extract offers tangible benefits to a host of health applications.
The health benefits of pomegranates have long been associated with their high antioxidant content; however, pomegranate ellagitannins, while highly bioactive in vitro, are not absorbed intact into the bloodstream. Patented Pomella® pomegranate extract is standardized to offer bioactive punicalagins, and their gut-derived metabolites, urolithins. The antioxidant function from Pomella’s polyphenols work with the body to support health benefits often impacted by oxidative stress, such as the gut-skin axis to promote healthy skin, cardio-metabolic health, and overall wellbeing.
Specifically designed to overcome absorption issues associated with ellagic acid, Pomella® pomegranate extract is standardized to punicalagins; a group of potent antioxidants. These ellagitannin polyphenols are water-soluble, highly bioavailable, and supported by safety data.
Not only are punicalagins known to offer a powerful kick of antioxidant properties on their own, but they are also among the most ferocious scavengers of free radicals, or unstable molecules that can cause damage to the body over time. Research shows that punicalagins, the major ellagitannins from pomegranate, efficiently hydrolyze into ellagic acid and further into urolithins. It also suggests that taking high levels of ellagic acid does not warrant the same health benefits. Patented Pomella® pomegranate extract is standardized to deliver efficacious punicalagins and metabolites, addressing this issue.
