Pomegranate juice inhibits oxidized LDL uptake and cholesterol biosynthesis in macrophages

Pomegranate juice (PJ)  was  shown to inhibit macrophage foam cell formation and development of atherosclerotic lesions. The aim of this study was to    elucidate  possible mechanisms by which Pomegranate juice reduces cholesterol accumulation in macrophages.
