In addition, Purpose Studies have found that pomegranate juice (PJ) PJ-supplemented animals had the lowest body weight and consumption increases the binding of high-density lipo- significantly reduced cholesterol and triacylglycerol lev - proteins (HDL) to paraoxonase 1 (PON1), thus increasing els, although the tricylglycerol levels were not consistently the catalytic activity of this enzyme. PON1 is an antioxi- decreased. dant arylesterase synthesized in the liver and transported Conclusions These results suggest that PJ protects against in plasma in association with HDL. Decreased levels of the effects of a high-fat diet in body weight, and cholesterol PON1 are associated with higher levels of cholesterol. We levels. determined the effects of PJ on body weight, cholesterol, and triacylglycerols through 5 months of supplementation.
