Forever Pomesteen Power

At a glance...
  • Super antioxidant.
  • Unique blend of fruit juices
  • Contains potent antioxidant which helps protect the skin
  • Exotic flavour that everyone enjoys

Description & Purpose

There is no disputing the fact that antioxidants are vital to our health and wellbeing. There is, however, much discussion today among nutritionists as to which fruit is the most powerful antioxidant, or which contains the most xanthones or has the highest ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value rating. Forever Pomesteen Power has them all with a proprietary blend of fruit juices and extracts, including pomegranate, pear, mangosteen, raspberry, blackberry, blueberry and grapeseed. ORAC value is an indicator of how well an antioxidant inhibits free radical damage.

The ORAC value of fruits varies greatly, even when testing the same fruit at different times after harvesting. What is important to know is that all of the ingredients of Forever Pomesteen Power are near the top of the list in ORAC value, especially pomegranate and mangosteen fruit. Pomegranate juice has more polyphenol antioxidants than red wine, green tea, cranberry juice and orange juice. In addition, it is a good source of vitamins A, C, E and the mineral, iron. Mangosteen is a popular fruit in Asia.

Its exquisite taste prompted Queen Victoria to declare it her favourite fruit, henceforth it has been referred to as the ‘Queen of Fruits!’ Its ORAC value is very high, and it is rich in beneficial xanthones. Xanthones are a family of naturally occurring nutritional compounds in fruits that are super-powerful antioxidants. Experience the incredible power of antioxidants from pomegranate, mangosteen, and other exotic fruits with Forever Pomesteen Power!


Pomegranate fruit juice, pear fruit juice, mangosteen (garcinia mangostana L) fruit juice, raspberry fruit juice, blackberry fruit juice, blueberry fruit juice and grapeseed extract, potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate (to help protect the flavour).

    Foods to Keep Your Brain Young

    The right foods can keep your brain young. Start with these colorful veggies.
    Carrots for memory. Carrots—along with bell peppers, celery, rosemary and thyme—contain luteolin, a flavonoid believed to reduce inflammation that can lead to cognitive decline. In a study published in the October 2010 issue of The Journal of Nutrition, mice that ate a diet that included luteolin had better spatial memory (e.g., how quickly they found a platform in a water maze) and less inflammation than mice who didn’t get any luteolin.

    Beets to beat dementia. Beets, plus cabbages and radishes, are rich in naturally occurring nitrates—which, unlike unhealthy artificial nitrates found in processed meat, may be beneficial. In a study published in the January 2011 issue of the journal Nitric Oxide, older adults who ate a nitrate-rich diet got a boost in blood flow to the frontal lobe of their brains—an area commonly associated with dementia. Poor blood flow contributes to age-related cognitive decline. Scientists think that the nitrates’ nitric oxide, a compound that keeps blood vessels supple, helps increase brain blood flow.

    Think quickly with asparagus. Like leafy greens, this vegetable delivers folate, which works with vitamin B12 (in fish, poultry and meat) to help prevent cognitive impairment. In a study from Tufts University, older adults with healthy levels of folate and B12 performed better on a test of speed and mental flexibility. If you’re 50-plus, be sure you’re getting enough B12: your ability to absorb it decreases with age.

    How To Get The Nutrients You Need When There Are Some Foods You Don’t Eat
    I’ve never been a picky eater. Even as a child, I gleefully ate yogurt, wheat germ, broccoli...even liverwurst! And that’s a good thing, because eating a wide variety of whole foods is key to good nutrition. But what about people who flat out hate certain foods?
    Do you need to eat breakfast? Even when you’re not hungry?
    5 “Bad” Foods You Don’t Have to Feel Guilty for Eating
    Are you getting enough of the nutrients your body needs? Unless you’re savvy about the different nutrients in food, you might be missing out. Most Americans are not meeting the recommended intake for several micronutrients, according to the 2010 report from the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (the folks who convene every five years to look at how Americans are eating and tell us how to eat better). The biggest shortfalls? Vitamin D, calcium, potassium and dietary fiber.

    To make sure you’re not among the nutrient-deficient, check out the following list. Hate the most common food source? Try eating some of the alternatives to meet your needs.

    Key Nutrient: Vitamin D

    How to Get It: Hate salmon? Eat cereal.

    Not many foods contain vitamin D, the vitamin that helps your body use bone-building calcium and phosphorus and is also touted as having a host of disease-fighting, health-supporting properties, from helping to ward off depression to lowering cancer risk. Many people have turned to supplements to up their vitamin D intake (the Institute of Medicine recently raised its recommendation to 600 IUs/day for everyone ages 1 to 70 and 800 IUs for adults over 70), but if you’re looking to get this nutrient from food (as I am), eat fortified breakfast cereals. Most milk is also fortified with vitamin D and you can find vitamin D-fortified orange juice. Sounds like a D-lightful breakfast for fatty-fish haters!

    Is vitamin D just a bunch of hype?

    Key Nutrient: Calcium

    How to Get It: Hate milk? Eat tofu.

    Bone-building calcium is richly packed into dairy foods (1 cup of milk delivers 300 mg, while a cup of yogurt provides 450 mg), but you don’t have to drink 3 cups of milk a day to get your daily dose (most women need 1,000 mg/day; those over 50 need 1,200 mg). Tofu prepared with calcium sulfate is a great alternative to milk (1/2 cup packs in 253 mg). Other good sources include broccoli and kale (60-94 mg per cup) and canned sardines (make sure to eat the bones to get about 200 mg per 3-oz. serving).

    Recipes to Try:
    Tofu & Broccoli Stir-Fry for a double dose of calcium, and more quick tofu dinners.

    Key Nutrient: Potassium

    How to Get It: Hate bananas? Eat sweet potatoes.

    Although bananas might be the best known potassium source, plenty of other fruits and vegetables fit the bill. A medium baked sweet potato (543 mg) has more potassium than a medium banana (422 mg). The daily recommendation for adults is 2,000 mg. A medium white potato (926 mg), cup of pumpkin (505 mg), cup of cherry tomatoes (353 mg), cup of cooked spinach (839 mg) or 1/4 cup of raisins (309 mg) all deliver a good dose of potassium, which is critical for helping nerves transmit signals, muscles contract and cells maintain their fluid balance.

    Recipes to Try:
    Sweet Potato Oven Fries and more healthy sweet potato recipes.

    Key Nutrient: Fiber

    How to Get It: Hate whole grains? Eat beans.

    Many people ask me if they have to eat whole-grain pasta, when they prefer white. The truth is, while you do miss out on extra vitamins and minerals (some B vitamins, vitamin E, phosphorus and potassium, to name a few) by opting for the refined grain, the biggest loss is the fiber (whole-grain pastas have two to three times the fiber per serving of regular white pasta). Fiber helps keep you fuller longer and may lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of certain cancers. The recommended intake is 25 grams per day for women and 38 grams for men, yet most Americans are only getting 14 grams! But whole grains aren’t the only healthy foods that can add fiber to your diet. Beans provide a whopping 6 to 7 grams per 1/2 cup, while whole fruits and vegetables (juice doesn’t count!) and some nuts (pecans, pistachios and hazelnuts all deliver 3 grams in a 1/4-cup serving) are also great sources of fiber.

    Diabetes develops when the body can't use glucose properly. As a result, people with diabetes can have abnormally high levels of glucose in their blood, if the condition isn't controlled.
    Types of diabetes
    There are two types of diabetes, Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 is more likely to be diagnosed in younger people, but it can develop at any age. In the UK there are about 18,000 people under the age of 18 with Type 1 diabetes. It develops when cells in the pancreas that produce insulin are destroyed. Insulin is a hormone that regulates the levels of glucose in the blood. This type of diabetes is treated with insulin injections.

    Type 2 diabetes is usually diagnosed in older people - the older you are the greater the risk. However, it is increasingly being found in younger people and sometimes in children. This type of diabetes can be treated with diet and exercise alone, although people with Type 2 diabetes often need medication and they sometimes need insulin too.

    Effects on health

    People with diabetes can live a normal healthy life. However, poorly controlled diabetes can lead to complications such as heart disease, kidney disease, blindness and nerve problems leading to amputation.

    For both types of diabetes, it's extremely important to control blood sugar levels and blood pressure, to prevent any long-term complications.

    Diabetes is the third most common long-term disease in the UK, after heart disease and cancer.

    Who develops diabetes?

    Nobody knows for sure why people develop Type 1 diabetes, but people who have a relative with diabetes are more likely to develop the condition.

    You are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes if you:
    • have a relative with diabetes (such as a parent, brother or sister)
    • are overweight
    • are over 40
    • are of Asian or African-Caribbean origin
    • have had diabetes during pregnancy
    There is no guaranteed way of preventing diabetes. However, eating a healthy balanced diet, taking regular physical exercise, and losing weight if you are overweight can delay the onset of the condition.

    Can diabetes be prevented?

    There is no guaranteed way of preventing diabetes. However, eating a healthy balanced diet, taking regular physical exercise, and losing weight if you are overweight can delay the onset of the condition.

    Diabetic products

    The Food Standards Agency and Diabetes UK (formerly the British Diabetic Association) don't recommend special diabetic products.

    Foods that are labelled 'diabetic' aren't necessarily healthier or more suitable for diabetics than other foods. And they tend to be more expensive than other products.

    Many of the products that are labelled 'diabetic' are sweets, chocolates and biscuits. We should all avoid eating lots of these types of foods.

    What should people with diabetes eat?

    People with diabetes should try to maintain a healthy weight and eat a diet that is:
    • low in fat (particularly saturated fat)
    • low in sugar
    • low in salt
    • high in fruit and vegetables (at least five portions a day)
    • high in starchy carbohydrate foods, such as bread, chapatti, rice, pasta and yams (these should form the base of meals) - choose wholegrain varieties when you can
    There are no foods that people with diabetes should never eat. And there is no need to cut out all sugar. But, like everyone, people with diabetes should try to eat only small amounts of foods that are high in sugar or fat, or both. If you have diabetes you can eat cakes and biscuits sparingly, as part of a balanced diet.

    Fruit juice is high in fructose (fruit sugar) so it can cause blood sugar levels to rise quickly. Because of this, it's best for people with diabetes to drink juice with a meal and avoid having more than one small glass a day.

    If you are prone to low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia), you might sometimes need to increase your blood sugar level quickly. If you suffer from a hypoglycaemic episode, you should have some fast-acting carbohydrate, such as a sugary drink or some glucose tablets, and follow this up with a starchy snack, such as a sandwich.

    Your GP or diabetes nurse can advise you on how to be prepared for hypoglycaemia, and how to manage it.


    Eating a diet that is high in saturated fat can raise the level of cholesterol in the blood. High cholesterol increases the risk of heart disease. These practical tips can help you cut down on saturated fat.
    Saturated fat is the kind of fat found in butter and lard, pies cakes and biscuits, fatty cuts of meat, sausages and bacon, and cheese and cream.
    Most of us eat too much saturated fat – about 20% more than the recommended maximum amount.
    • The average man should eat no more than 30g of saturated fat a day.
    • The average woman should eat no more than 20g of saturated fat a day.
    You can use these figures to guide your choices when you are shopping. When you check nutrition labels on food packaging and see how much saturated fat is contained in many common foods, you’ll see how easy it can be to exceed the recommended maximum amount.
    You can learn more about fat, including how nutrition labels can help you cut down, in Fat: the facts.

    Cut down on saturated fat

    Read the label

    Food labels can help you to cut down on saturated fat. Look out for the figure for ‘saturates’ or ‘sat fat’ on the label:

    • High: more than 5g saturates per 100g. May display a red traffic light.
    • Low: 1.5g saturates or less per 100g. May display a green traffic light.
    • If the amount of fat or saturated fat per 100g is in between these figures, that is a medium level, and may be colour coded amber.
    Use these practical tips about common foods to help you cut down on saturated fat:
    First are tips for eating at home. Next, tips for eating out-and-about.
    At home
    • Spaghetti Bolognese: use a leaner mince. It’s lower in saturated fat. If you aren't using leaner mince, brown the mince first, then drain off the fat before adding other ingredients.
    • Pizza: choose a lower-fat topping, such as vegetables, ham, fish or prawns, instead of pepperoni, salami or extra cheese.
    • Fish pie: use reduced-fat spread and 1% fat milk.
    • Chilli: use leaner mince to reduce the saturated fat content. Or try it vegetarian-style for a change by adding beans, pulses and vegetables instead of mince.
    • Ready meals: compare the nutrition labels on different ready meals. There can be a big difference in saturated fat content. Pick the one lower in saturated fat using per 100g or per serving information. Remember, serving size may vary, so read the label carefully.
    • Potatoes: make your roast potatoes healthier by cutting them into larger pieces than usual and using just a little sunflower or olive oil.
    • Chips: choose thick, straight-cut chips instead of French fries or crinkle-cut. If you’re making your own, cook them in the oven with a drizzle of sunflower oil, rather than deep-frying.
    • Mashed potato: use reduced-fat spread instead of butter, and 1% fat milk or skimmed milk instead of whole or semi-skimmed milk.
    • Chicken: before you eat it, take the skin off to reduce the saturated fat content.
    • Meat: trim the visible fat off meat such as steak.
    • Sausages: compare nutrition labels on the packs and choose the ones lower in saturated fat using per serving or per 100g information. Remember, servings may vary so read the label carefully. Make sure you grill them instead of frying.
    • Bacon: choose back bacon instead of streaky bacon. If you’re cooking your own, grill the bacon instead of frying.
    • Eggs: prepare eggs without oil or butter. Poach, boil or dry-fry your eggs.
    • Pasta: try a tomato sauce on your pasta. It’s lower in saturated fat than a creamy or cheesy sauce.
    • Milk: use 1% fat milk on your cereal. It has about half the saturated fat of semi-skimmed.
    • Cheese: when using cheese to flavour a dish or sauce, try a strong-tasting cheese, such as mature Cheddar, because you’ll need less. Make cheese go further by grating cheese instead of slicing it.
    • Yoghurt: choose a lower-fat yoghurt. There can be a big difference between different products.
    The tips below can help you cut down on saturated fat when eating out.
    • Coffee on the go: swap any large whole-milk coffee for regular ‘skinny’ ones.
    • Curry: go for dry or tomato-based dishes, such as tandoori or madras, instead of creamy curries such as korma, passanda or massala. And choose plain rice and chapatti instead of pilau rice and naan.
    • Kebabs: at the kebab shop, go for a shish kebab with pitta bread and salad, rather than a doner kebab.
    • Chinese take-away: choose a lower-fat dish, such as steamed fish, chicken chop suey or Szechuan prawns.
    • Thai: try a stir-fried or steamed dish containing chicken, fish or vegetables. Watch out for curries that contain coconut milk, which is high in saturated fat. If you choose one of these, try not to eat all the sauce.
    • Snack time: have some fruit, toast, a low-fat yoghurt or a handful of unsalted nuts, instead of chocolate, doughnuts, croissants or pastries. If you must have something sweet, swap cakes and biscuits for a currant bun, scone or some malt loaf, plain or with reduced-fat spread.
