NUTRITIONAL COMMENT FROM @dimitris_petsios
In sports, the polyphenols in pomegranate extract exert physiological effects that can increase by 1.90% a variety of athletic performance parameters - such as exercise time, fatigue, distance covered in a preset duration. In addition, there are several controls (RPE), increasing maximum oxygen uptake and faster recovery of muscle mass. Polyphenols improve aerobic metabolism in theory by stimulating mitochondrial biogenesis. On the other hand, antioxidant supplementation can affect muscle performance by reducing strength production.

NUTRITIONAL COMMENT FROM @dimitris_petsios
The health effects of pomegranate fruit and its extracts have been studied in relation to a variety of chronic diseases. Promising results against cardiovascular disease, diabetes and prostate cancer have been reported from clinical trials in humans. The in vitro antioxidant activity of pomegranate is due to its high content of polyphenols, namely punicalagin, punic acid, lactic acid. These compounds are metabolized during digestion to ellagic acid and urolithins, indicating that the bioactive compounds that provide in vivo antioxidant activity may not be the same as those present throughout the food.
Also anthocyanins and phenols of olive oil can also play an important role and health effects, as their anti-inflammatory and in vitro anti-cancer effects are well studied.
