How to store
Chris Kolyperas –
Very good product and with a very nice taste. Especially when I consume it before training it gives me more energy than the common supplements.
Demitri Vithos –
When it comes to energy boost there is nothing quite alike. We all know about the Pomegranate health facts, especially the ones that gives vitality to the heart and to the arteries. But this one is the ONE! I stopped all other vitamins and supplements as I discovered I need nothing more than this. Needless to say about the taste and the countless uses. Dilute in warm or cold water and you have the best refreshment!!!
This is a miracle. Thank you so much guys!

When you first taste this product you have two reactions. The first reaction: this product is unforgettable -because the taste just takes your breath away. It is that GOOD. The second reaction: where can I find this product right now, because I simply must have it. Yet another genius product from Milestone!
Doesn’t polyphenols inhibit iron absorption?
Reply: We are delighted by your 5-star review and we would like to thank you for that. Regarding your question please find the answer inline below.
The answer to your question is not as simple, since it lies on a “gray” scientific zone. The term gray is used to signify that the scientific results are not yet conclusive. It has been shown in various research studies that bioactive dietary polyphenols inhibit heme or non-heme iron absorption. The role of ascorbic acid in offsetting some of the inhibitory action of polyphenols has also been investigated with outcomes that depend on the concentration polyphenols in the food matrix.
While the above statement is true in general, the exact mechanism by which this works remains unexplored. For example, various studies have related the use of pomegranate juice to high iron bioabsorption and bioavailability. The authors of this paper conclude with the following statement: “Among the most recent ones, the work by S. P. Balasubramani et al., shows that the pomegranate juice has the ability to enhance iron dialysability, uptake and assimilation. The results obtained through in vitro tests are comparable to the in vivo assays and clinical observations to determine iron bioavailability . The increase in the iron bioavailability in the presence of PJ is not just because of its AA content. Other organic acids, sugars and polyphenols present in pomegranate juice might as well have a role in modulation of iron bioavailability.”
Iron assimilation into cells was measured in terms of the cellular ferritin content. The pomegranate juice (containing ~13 mg/100 ml natural ascorbic acid equivalent) increased the dialysability of iron by >3 fold when compared to control in the cell free model. An equivalent concentration of ascorbic acid alone increased it only by 1.6-fold. Additionally, the pomegranate juice increased the iron uptake in Caco2 cells by ~6-fold and ferritin content by 30% when compared to the ascorbic acid control. Similarly, the pomegranate juice enhanced the iron uptake in HepG2 cells by ~3 fold and iron assimilation by about 50%. This study establishes a scientific evidence for Ayurveda’s claim of using pomegranate in the management of IDA by facilitating iron absorption and assimilation. It provides a simple solution for addressing the global problem of IDA. Synergistic action of multiple phytochemicals, over and above ascorbic acid, in pomegranate juice may be responsible for improving iron bioavailability.
In this respect, there is a clear distance between a natural synergistic formula and a synthetic approach; which in turn proves yet again that there is a long way until we fully grasp the underlying working mechanism. Our products are 100% on natural ingredients and bioactive compounds and therefore a possible interference between these components should not exist.
What about oxalate? ❤
Reply: Regarding, your comment on oxalate. Kindly let us know should you require anything specific information. Receiving daily our pomegranate concentrate should have your daily calcium needs mostly covered, which should contribute towards keeping your urine oxalate at low levels. However, especially with pomegranate, it is always best to seek medical advice prior to use.
Is there any alcohol in the final product?
Reply: The answer is no. All our current and under development products are alcohol free.
