What is Pomi-T ?
Pomi-T capsules contain purified active ingredients of Broccoli, Pomegranate, Tumeric and Green Tea. Unlike many other supplement manufacturers Pomi-T uses fully accountable, quality assured products and perform their own laboratory analysis of each ingredient to ensure it is pure and free from contaminants.
- Broccoli (Brassica Oleracea) florets and stacks – 150mg per capsule
- Turmeric (Curcuma Longa) root – 150mg per capsule
- Pomegranate (Punica Granatum L) seed and whole fruit – 150mg per capsule
- Green Tea (Camellia Sinesis) leaf 5 : 1 – 30mg equivalent to 150mg per capsule
Green tea, rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), has been shown to block ornithine decarboxylase, an enzyme that signals cells to bypass apoptosis [Mclarty, Porrini, Liao]. Green tea inhibits breast and prostate cancer cell proliferation, block de-differentiation and angiogenesis [Yang].
Curcumin gives turmeric its yellow colour, slows down the growth of prostate cancer cells by blocking the cell cycle, increasing apoptosis, preventing the invasion and migration of cells [Somasundaram, Shah, Zhang, Iqbal]. It inhibits tyrosine kinase activity of the EGFR [Dorai], has cox-I mediated anti-inflammatory properties [Handler], and inhibits the growth of stem cells that give rise to breast cancer without harming normal breast cells [Kakarala].
Pomegranate, rich in ellagic acid, inhibits prostate cancer cell proliferation and induces apoptosis in laboratory studies [Retitig, Lansky, Malik, Khan, Barber, Choi]. In breast cancer cell lines, it increases markers of cell adhesion and reduce migration, which are associated with metastasis [Rocha, Wang].
Broccoli, rich in isothiocyanate and sulforaphane, inhibit growth and promote apoptosis of cancer cells [Sarkar]. In humans, regular intake down-regulates genes linked to cancer growth, and up-regulates genes linked to cancer suppression, particularly in the 50% of the population who carry a mutated glutathione S-transferase gene [Gasper, Moysich, Joseph, Heinen].
Pomi-T® is not a drug so there is no specific dosage and it is designed to be taken as part of a healthy balanced diet.
Daily dosage therefore depends on your food intake for that day. For example, a
day with a good diet including plenty of dark green vegetables, berries, fruit and teas would only require one tablet day, whereas, on an average day then 2-3
would be better.
Men within the Pomi-T trial took a dosage equivalent to 2 capsules a day.
