Pomegranate Seed Oil joins the fight against diabetes 
Monday, November 23, 2009 at 9:36AM

A new study has been published in the British Journal of Nutrition suggesting that pomegranate seed oil may have increased insulin sensitivity.

Researchers believe this may be due to the seed oil’s high concentration of CLA (conjugated linolenic acid) which could be the component that accounts for a reduced risk of developing diabetes.

Studies to date have only been undertaken with mice, so it’s a little too early to confirm whether pomegranate seed oil significantly reduces the risk of developing diabetes in humans. But it’s certainly positive progress in the right direction – stay tuned for further studies!
