13 Great Pomegranate Juice Benefits For Men

In this article, we will discuss the specific pomegranate juice benefits for men, before taking a look at general health benefits for everyone, and why this superfruit offers such benefits.

Our diet and nutrition resources are rigorously vetted by our expert team and adhere to our Diet and Nutrition Guidelines.

Certain fruits and vegetables may provide specific health benefits, sometimes for one sex more so than the other.

For example, there’s been some research to suggest that there are particular pomegranate benefits for men’s health.

Whilst pomegranate has health benefits for all humans, some research has shown that drinking pomegranate juice or consuming pomegranate can increase testosterone levels and provide other specific health benefits for men.

A Resurgence In Pomegranate Popularity

Although pomegranates, the fruit of the Punica granatum L tree, have been part of the human diet for thousands of years, it has only been in the last 20 years or so that the fruit has seen a massive resurgence in popularity, being dubbed a ‘superfruit.’

For example, in the five years from 2007 to 2012, the number of farms producing pomegranates in the United States doubled.1Pomegranates | Agricultural Marketing Resource Center. (n.d.). Www.agmrc.org. https://www.agmrc.org/commodities-products/fruits/pomegranates

In the year 2015 alone, there were 60 new pomegranate products added to the shelves in grocery stores, indicative of the massive surge in interest in consuming pomegranates and drinking pomegranate juice.2Hot trend: 59 new pomegranate products were introduced last year. – Mike Hohnen. (2004, January 27). https://mikehohnen.com/hot-trend-59-new-pomegranate-products-were-introduced-last-year/

The aforementioned surge in new pomegranate products to hit market shelves in 2015 was not solely confined to various iterations of pomegranate juice or foods with pomegranate flavoring, but also pomegranate supplements.

As some research suggests that the consumption of pomegranate may help boost testosterone levels and improve male fertility and sexual performance, the number of natural sexual performance and male libido supplements containing pomegranate has increased in recent years.

Most of the fruit is bitter and fibrous, so only the pomegranate seeds and their arils (the fleshy part surrounding the seed) are usually eaten. However, pomegranate skin supplements have also recently increased in popularity.

Let’s look at what the research says about the overall benefits of pomegranates, as well as the specific pomegranate benefits for men.

Benefits Of Pomegranate For Men

It is important to note that many of the pomegranate benefits that are attributable to the antioxidant content apply to either biological sex.3https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK541064/

However, there’s also been research that has looked specifically at the pomegranate benefits for men that points to the antioxidants in pomegranates providing particular support for the biological male body.

Sexual Health, Fertility, And Testosterone Benefits

Some studies have found that supplementing with pomegranate fruit juice may help improve male infertility and enhance sperm motility and sperm count.4Al-Dujaili, E., & Smail, N. (2012, March 1). Pomegranate juice intake enhances salivary testosterone levels and improves mood and well being in healthy men and women. Www.endocrine-Abstracts.org; BioScientifica. https://www.endocrine-abstracts.org/ea/0028/ea0028P313

There have also been a handful of human and animal studies that have found that pomegranates or pomegranate juice may help increase testosterone levels.

When we discuss the pomegranate benefits for men in relation to increasing testosterone levels, it is important to note that biological females can also benefit from boosting testosterone levels.

The male and female bodies both produce testosterone, although testosterone levels are significantly higher in biological males.

Testosterone is generally most associated with providing secondary sex characteristics for men, such as increasing libido, deepening the voice, supporting sexual function, and enhancing the growth of body hair. However, testosterone also serves a host of other benefits in the body for both biological males and females.

For example, testosterone is a crucial hormone for supporting muscle growth and muscle repair after exercise as well as bone health and brain health.

Although both males and females produce testosterone naturally, testosterone levels begin to decline with age, generally at a rate of about 1 to 2% per year.5Leproult, R. (2011). Effect of 1 Week of Sleep Restriction on Testosterone Levels in Young Healthy Men. JAMA305(21), 2173. https://doi.org/10.1001/jama.2011.710

For this reason, employing various strategies to boost testosterone levels naturally can be important, particularly for middle-aged and older adults.

Because testosterone provides numerous benefits in both the male and female bodies, low testosterone levels that are associated with advanced age can lead to unwanted side effects such as low sex drive, infertility, and loss of muscle mass, among other problems.

That said, because testosterone is considered the male sex hormone and is implicated in issues with male infertility, impotence, low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, and loss of muscle mass in men, many of the studies looking at the benefits of pomegranate supplementation on testosterone levels have focused mainly on men.

The good news is that there are different natural strategies to boost testosterone production, potentially including eating certain testosterone-boosting foods, such as pomegranate fruit. 

Research suggests that pomegranates may be one of the best fruits to boost testosterone in humans.6Al-Dujaili, E., & Smail, N. (2012, March 1). Pomegranate juice intake enhances salivary testosterone levels and improves mood and well being in healthy men and women. Www.endocrine-Abstracts.org; BioScientifica. https://www.endocrine-abstracts.org/ea/0028/ea0028P313

Pomegranate juice consumption may also help protect Leydig cells from injury. These are the specific cells in the body that produce testosterone.7Al-Olayan, E. M., El-Khadragy, M. F., Metwally, D. M., & Abdel Moneim, A. E. (2014). Protective effects of pomegranate (Punica granatum) juice on testes against carbon tetrachloride intoxication in rats. BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine14(1). https://doi.org/10.1186/1472-6882-14-164

Another small study looking at serum testosterone levels in male weightlifters found that the male athletes who took a pomegranate juice supplement saw improvement in the hormonal response to exercise, including testosterone levels.8Ammar, A., MounaTurki, Trabelsi, K., Bragazzi, N. L., Boukhris, O., Bouaziz, M., Ayadi, F., El Abed, K., Driss, T., Souissi, N., Chtourou, H., Bailey, S. J., & Hoekelmann, A. (2020). Effects of natural polyphenol-rich pomegranate juice on the acute and delayed response of Homocysteine and steroidal hormones following weightlifting exercises: a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition17(1). https://doi.org/10.1186/s12970-020-00345-w

Lastly, fruits such as pomegranates, berries, and cherries provide antioxidants that have been found to potentially combat the risk of inflammation due to obesity.9Land Lail, H., Feresin, R. G., Hicks, D., Stone, B., Price, E., & Wanders, D. (2021). Berries as a Treatment for Obesity-Induced Inflammation: Evidence from Preclinical Models. Nutrients13(2). https://doi.org/10.3390/nu13020334

Because excessive weight gain has been found to negatively affect testosterone production and lower testosterone levels, adding these nutritious fruits to the diet may further support healthy testosterone levels indirectly by preventing deleterious weight gain.

Other Benefits Due To High Ellagitannin Concentration

Pomegranate has the highest concentration of ellagitannins and ellagic acid of any food.

Ellagitannins are bioactive polyphenols which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Ellagitannins are converted into ellagic acid in the body, and whilst the body struggles to absorb these molecules on their own, they are converted into chemicals known as urolithins by bacteria in the gut, allowing the molecules to be absorbed and for us to reap the benefits.

These urolithins have been shown to inhibit prostate cancer cell growth, the most common type of cancer in men.10Heber, D. (2011). Pomegranate Ellagitannins (I. F. F. Benzie & S. Wachtel-Galor, Eds.). PubMed; CRC Press/Taylor & Francis. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK92772/#:~:text=Ellagitannins%20are%20bioactive%20polyphenols%20present

The anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of ellagitannins have also been shown to offer other benefits for gut health and brain wellness within the gut–brain axis.11Banc, R., Rusu, M. E., Filip, L., & Popa, D.-S. (2023). The Impact of Ellagitannins and Their Metabolites through Gut Microbiome on the Gut Health and Brain Wellness within the Gut–Brain Axis. Foods12(2), 270. https://doi.org/10.3390/foods12020270

Why Are Pomegranates So Good for You?: General Health Benefits Of Pomegranates

The primary reason that pomegranates are considered a superfruit or superfood, or a fruit that can provide various health benefits, is due to their high antioxidant content.

Antioxidants are natural compounds that help combat reactive oxygen species in the body known as free radicals.

Left unchecked, free radicals can cause deleterious oxidative damage to cells, proteins, DNA, tissues, lipids, and other biological compounds in the human body.

The oxidative stress induced by chronic exposure to high levels of free radicals in the body can cause premature aging on both a cellular and macroscopic level.

This can potentially shorten telomeres, which are the ends of chromosomes that have been linked to youthfulness and supporting a younger biological age, causing outward signs of aging such as wrinkles and saggy skin.

Free radicals also have the potential to increase the risk of cancer, inflammatory conditions, and other chronic diseases such as heart disease.

Essentially, free radicals cause the breakdown of cells and tissues as well as biological molecules such as proteins and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), which can have a cascade of adverse effects on the health and function of various systems, pathways, and structures in your body.

Studies have found that diets high in natural antioxidants can help protect against oxidative damage, indirectly preventing premature aging, protecting the heart and vasculature, reducing the risk of cancer and other diseases, and supporting healthy skin and cell membranes, among other benefits.12Stone, W. L., Pham, T., & Mohiuddin, S. S. (2020). Biochemistry, Antioxidants. PubMed; StatPearls Publishing. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK541064/

Many of the best food sources of antioxidants are fruits and vegetables.

Pomegranates are especially rich in potent antioxidants.

Due to the protective nature of antioxidants and the impressive antioxidant concentration in pomegranates, Harvard Medical named pomegranates the ‘fruit of the month’ in December 2021, highlighting some of the many health benefits of pomegranates.13Corliss, J. (2021, October 1). Fruit of the month: Pomegranate. Harvard Health. https://www.health.harvard.edu/heart-health/fruit-of-the-month-pomegranate

According to Harvard Medical, pomegranate juice contains three times the antioxidant levels of green tea or red wine, two other antioxidant-rich drinks often promoted for their health benefits.14Corliss, J. (2021, October 1). Fruit of the month: Pomegranate. Harvard Health. https://www.health.harvard.edu/heart-health/fruit-of-the-month-pomegranate

The report also cites other research that demonstrates the benefits of pomegranate juice, such as reducing high blood pressure and decreasing serum levels of LDL cholesterol (the ‘bad’ cholesterol associated with forming atherosclerotic plaques in blood vessels and increasing the risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke).

High levels of anthocyanins, tannins, antioxidants in pomegranate and pomegranate extract have also been linked with weight-loss benefits.

Pomegranate also contains other essential vitamins such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Potassium, and Magnesium, providing additional antioxidant and circulatory health benefits. 1515 health benefits of pomegranate juice. (n.d.). Www.medicalnewstoday.com. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/318385#Benefits-of-pomegranate

Whilst eating pomegranate is not a substitute for a healthy, active lifesystle and meeting your dietary needs with healthy, nutritious foods, it is clear that pomegranate is a great fruit to include in your diet, potentially lowering the risk factors of many diseases.
