Pomegranate extract capsules. One Punicalagin Plus contains the bioactive substances present in more than 50 litres of pomegranate juice.
The Granatum Punicalagina Plus + pomegranate extract capsules bioactive components
The Granatum Punicalagin Plus + food supplement showed a high content of phenolic compounds, mainly attributed to its outstanding punicalagin content; punicalagin represented more than 31% of the net weight of the capsule, with an average value of 231 mg of punicalagin per capsule. The punicalagin content per capsule is clearly higher than that naturally present in the edible parts of the pomegranate, or in the juice made from the fruit.
It should be noted that the scientific literature reports highly variable amounts of punicalagin in pomegranate juice as a consequence of the different extraction techniques. Contributory factors may involve separation or not of the arils prior to pressing and different intensities of pressing.
Previous studies in the field suggest that the average punicalagin content is in the range of 4 mg to 564 mg per litre of natural pomegranate juice (Gil et al. 2000; Fischer et al. 2011; Campillo et al. 2015).

Taking these values as a reference, the intake of a daily capsule of the Granatum Punicalagina Plus + food supplement would be equivalent to the punicalagin content of between 410 ml and over 50 litres of natural pomegranate juice per day.
