Pomi-T® contains premium, natural ingredients containing polyphenols, sourced from carefully researched suppliers. We know our ingredients are of the highest quality because our products are re-tested in qualified laboratories to ensure purity.
Pomi-T® combines broccoli, turmeric, green tea, and pomegranate to create a unique and varied blend of polyphenols.
The leafy florets and stalks of broccoli are known to contain isothiocyanate and sulforaphane.
Curcumin gives turmeric its vibrant yellow colouring. For centuries, turmeric root has been acclaimed for its antioxidant properties.
We don’t just use promegranate juice, we also include parts you don’t usually eat – the skin and seeds, which contain ellagic acid, a natural polyphenol shown to decrease oxidative stress.
Polyphenols, such as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), extracted from the leaves of the green tea plant, are known to have antioxidant properties.
Isothiocyanate and its metabolite sulphoraphane are derived from the breakdown of sulfur-containing compounds found in cruciferous vegetables. Evidence indicates that isothioicyanate can impact multiple cellular and metabolic pathways, including cell death, cell signalling and oxidative stress<sup>1</sup>.
Curcumin is believed to have direct and indirect antioxidant activities through its ability to scavenge free radicals, and to activate detoxifying enzymes, such as glutathione-S-transferase<sup>1</sup>.
The pomegranate skin contains the highest content of polyphenols in the fruit. It contains a type of polyphenol called ellagitannins. Ellagitannins are hydrolysed to ellagic acid in the gut. Pomegranate also contains other polyphenols, such as anthocyanins and flavanols<sup>1</sup>.
The health-promoting effects of green tea have been subject to extensive research, and are attributed to the antioxidant properties of catechin polyphenols<sup>1</sup>.
Polyphenols can be found in many of the plant-based foods we eat. A few examples include: isothiocyonates in cabbage and broccoli, epigallocatechin in green tea, capsaicin in chili peppers, resveratrol in red wine, curcumin in turmeric and many more.
Polyphenols and polyphenol supplements are the subject of increasing scientific and clinical interest because of the possible health benefits associated with their consumption.

By taking 2 Pomi-T® capsules a day, you can easily integrate a source of natural polyphenols into your nutritional plan as part of a healthy and balanced diet.
Claire is training for a marathon and takes 2 Pomi-T® capsules every day as a polyphenol supplement to support her gruelling training schedule.
Lewis has a demanding, full-time job and finds little time to be sure he is including enough polyphenols in his diet.
Jack and his wife Pauline both take daily Pomi-T® supplements. Jack needed some convincing at first but now feels that the benefits of polyphenols have a positive effect on his wellbeing and improve his general health.

Polyphenol-rich foods like pomegranate, green tea, turmeric and broccoli have demonstrated their protective benefits against disease in multiple small Phase II clinical studies. This theory was tested further in a larger double-blind, placebo-controlled randomised trial, where Pomi-T® was shown to be effective as a polyphenol-rich intervention in men with prostate cancer.1
Trial participants received either Pomi-T® or placebo capsule twice daily. Results saw a significant reduction in the PSA levels of men receiving Pomi-T® compared with those on placebo, suggesting that Pomi-T® had a beneficial effect on PSA levels in prostate cancer patients managed with active surveillance or watchful waiting. To learn more about the trial and how Pomi-T® can support prostate health, watch our video animation.
Find below three summaries about the clinical trials linked in this section:
1. The effect of the polyphenol food supplement Pomi-T® on prostate health was examined in this double-blind, placebo-controlled randomised trial. This study demonstrated that Pomi-T® has a statistically significant short-term benefit on prostate cancer progression as measured by Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) levels.
2. Low-risk prostate cancer is commonly managed by active surveillance (AS) whereby disease progression is monitored and radical treatment is only offered when significant progression occurs. This study investigated the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the monitoring of prostate cancer progression and identified a strong link between MRI-reported disease status and the dynamics of Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA).
3. This study evaluated evidence from randomised trials that examined the safety and efficacy of nutritional phyto-therapeutic interventions such as polyphenol supplement Pomi-T®, sulphoraphane, lycopene, and pomegranate extract in the management of prostate cancer progression. All the studies analysed found a beneficial short-term effect on Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) levels.
