Ingredients And Production
Omega-5 and Nanotechnology
The oil contains one main fatty acid – Punicic Acid – Omega 5. This is a polyunsaturated fatty acid comprising 18 carbons with three conjugated double bonds, which make it one of the most potent antioxidants in nature. Oxidation of one double bond makes the punicic acid an isomer of linoleic acid, proposed in various scientific papers as having many qualities.
Production process of the pomegranate seed oil
Pomegranate seed oil is cold-pressed and does not undergo extraction in organic solvents hence, all of the oil’s components are preserved in excellent quality.
It is recommended to take two capsules together, every morning. The use of capsules should continue on a permanent basis.
Inside The Capsule
Pomegranate Seed Oil 125 mg, Emulsifiers E-494, E-433, Ethanol 2%, Filler (Glycerine), Fish Gelatin (Tilapia), Iron oxide color.
Total capsule weight is 650 mg., with a caloric value of less than 3 calories.
All ingredients were found to be safe for use, and approved for the food industry by the U.S. FDA at even higher concentrations than those found in the capsules.
Pomegranate seed oil and punicic acid are natural substances and are not considered to be toxic materials. The oil itself is used worldwide and is considered safe and even healthy.
No mitogenic activity or liver enzyme activity change was found in concentrations of 2 grams. The LD50 value is over 5 gms/kg body weight, according to OECD countries’ indices. Therefore, pomegranate oil is considered to be safe, without any consumption limits.
Where is GranaGard manufactured?
GranaGard is manufactured exclusively for GRANALIX by Ambrosia-SupHerb, Israel’s leading manufacturer of advanced nutritional supplements.
