I came accross this info ,and thought i would share it incase it is useful to us.

Scientists from the UK have developed a 33p-a-day "superfoods" pill that they claim is a powerful cancer-buster.The pill has various ingredients including pomegranate, green tea, turmeric and broccoli, the Daily Express reported.
The study - conducted by Professor Robert Thomas, a consultant at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge and at Bedford Hospital - of 203 men suffering from prostate cancer showed that men taking the twice-daily capsule had 63 per cent less PSA.
The supplemnt is called pomi-T.

Interesting. I've read about pomengranate (I think) before. Thx.

Give it a shot; it probably can't hurt. My wife has had limited success with standard migraine meds, and a witch's brew supersupplement helps. Go figure. As always, YMMV (Your mileage may vary).

"This difference is statistically significant."
 

This study involved > 200 men in a randomized, double-blind, controlled, Phase II clinical trial. All patients received either an oral capsule containing the food supplement twice a day or they received an identical placebo. Here are the early trial results:

  • 203 men diagnosed with localized prostate cancer were enrolled into the trial.
    • The average age of the patients was 74 years.
    • 59 percent were being managed with active surveillance.
    • 41 percent were being managed with watchful waiting (progressive PSA relapse following previous radical interventions).
  • The patients were randomized into two groups (to receive either the food supplement or the placebo).
    • The groups were statistically balanced in terms of Gleason grade, body mass index (BMI), treatment category, and fasting cholesterol.
    • Men in the food supplement group were younger (average age 71.8 years) than men in the placebo group (average age 76.4 years).
    • Four men withdrew from the study after randomization.
  • The average (median) change in PSA levels of men in the two groups at 6 months was:
    • +14.7 percent for the men receiving the food supplement
    • +78.5 percent for the men receiving the placebo
    • This difference is statistically significant.
  • At 6 months, stable or lower PSA levels were observed in
    • 46 percent of men receiving the food supplement
    • 14 percent of the men receiving the placebo.
    • This difference is statistically significant.
However, I would have went with the name: Pomegreenteaurmericcoli

Here's a link to a summary of this clinical trial, that was done by ASCO:
 
 
Interesting stuff.  I take 8 oz of Pomegranate juice, 16 oz of green tea daily, and at least 4-5 days of fresh/steamed brocolli.  Not sure 'for a fact' that it's helping or not - however I have researched and found enough results on the PCa benefits of all three to make it worthwhile to me.  I guess the only thing I'm missing is the tumeric.
56 yrs old, excellent health - DX'd with PCa July '12
PSA 5.8
Biopsy 6/27/12
9 of 12 Gleason: 3+3 and 3+4 (All neg PNI)
Negative DRE’s / NO / MO / T1C / Gland size 40gm / Vol. 22gm
Volume Study 8/14/12
Casodex 50mg daily 5 wks prior 2 wks post BT
LDR BT 9/21/12 – no issues
3 mo PSA 12/20 0.48!
6 mo PSA 3/14 0.21!
9 mo PSA 6/18/13 0.30!

This is interesting. I might try it. I don't have prostate cancer (that I know of), but I have higher than typical psa for my age and a family history, including father who died from prostate cancer, so I watch it carefully. The study was for people who do have diagnosed prostate cancer, so it was not focused on prevention. But maybe it would have a benefit for prevention too. The one thing I worry about is anything that could potentially "mask" prostate cancer -- that is, lower psa results but not kill cancer cells. So you have cancer but you don't know it. That was a big concern with saw palmetto, for example But I might take the chance with this Pomi-T. The test results seem pretty significant.
I am not a medical professional, and nothing I write is medical advice.

If you go to their website and check out the ingredients you will find that they are fairly low dosage. Like 100 mg of pomegranite extract and curcumin. It take 2-3 grams of each every day as well as green tea and broccoli extracts that far exceed the amount in Pom-T. Just wondering if there is some synergistic mix that they use that I am not aware of?
 
The broccoli was a recent addition to my regimine as were IP-6 and modified citrus pectin. My next psa test is in August. We'll see. Trying to avoid/postpone getting zapped.

I drink a lot of green tea, drink 8oz of POM daily, and eat broccoli 2-3 times a week (a lot of asparagus, green beans, and brussel sprouts too). I only use tumeric when I remember it (throw it in sauces, etc). I will continue to eat healthy, if for no other reason as it keeps me from dying from something other than PCa! The suppliment thing is interesting, but I keep reading that suppliments cannot do what whole foods do, and it's the interactions of whole foods that are most beneficial. These men were quite a bit older than me too, so I'm not sure that had any bearing. The results are very interesting though, and I plan to investigate this more fully.

It is all about polyphenols,a large family of natural antioxidant compounds distributed in plant foods.
If you eat foods containing polyphenols daily (3-4 servings a day),I don't think you need supplements.
some foods rich in polyphenol are:pomegranate juice,all berries,cherries,peanuts,green tea, chocolate, cacao,onions,broccoli,turmeric,red wine and many others.for me it is impossible to consume those foods everyday ,so a certified supplement is a great help.
For those who believe in witches, i hope ASCO physicians and experts are not inspired by witches and aliens.Are they ,Tim G?

I am currently staying at Dr June Meymand's clinic in Dallas, Tx.
I have these and more daily that are all made from organic foods. The only uniqueness to this is the fact that these four ingred. were studied in the UK and published. There has been many studies published on polyphenols as well as antioxidants.
Dr Meymand is the most knowledgeable person I have met in these areas of treatment and deals with all kinds of cancer. Also she is board certified in integrative medicine. I feel I must use a doctors expertise or I would be taking 100's of products that I, my family or friends find on the internet. It can get expensive.

I was looking for Pomi-t in America!!

Maybe this site can be useful to somebody here?...

Have a good one!

Institut123,

Google suggests there are a number of sources for Pomi-T in the US. We don't allow new members to post links to online stores -- a rule intended to discourage spammers.
