How does it work?

Pomegranate comprises a mixture of chemicals that might have antioxidant effects.

Downside of Pomegranate claims and the Ground reality 

The Food and Drug Administration of the USA issued a warning letter to the owners of the “Pom Wonderful 100% Pomegranate juice”  that it promoted its juice for situations that make the product to be a drug. Representations of unapproved labeling indicated in the warning letter come from a section of POM’s website named “Featured Scientific Studies.”  It included healing of “Prostate Cancer”, “Erectile Dysfunction”, “Reducing LDL cholesterol”, “promote(ing) a healthy heart and prostate”, “reduce(ing) the length and severity of colds”, “…shown to slow prostate tumor growth”, “particularly beneficial (“among quite a few others”).”Via 

It said in case the Company wants to promote the pomegranate juice for treating and mitigating many diseases then it needs to get approval to get such claims and treat it as a drug. All in all the veracity of pomegranate juice has still to be recognized.

“POM Wonderful ” a US company promoting the business of pomegranate got refrained from making the claims of magical cures by the use of pomegranate-based products by the US Courts of Appeals in January 2015. The appellate court observed and restricted Pom Wonderful not to mislead in its ads the cures claimed lacking scientific evidence.

It is better that more reports and clinical verifications get available in due course of time.
