The thing to do is to step back and look at the ENTIRE picture.
What the hell is Pomegranate Juice? Why the fuss - What is special - What is in it - How does it work..?
The reality would seem to be that it is just the 'latest' development in the chain of known sources of Bio-flavanoids and Anti-Oxidants/OPC's etc.
Not for a second, am I running it down, but for some years now, we have seen the heavy study into why we have the 'French paradox" and the "Mediteranian Diet".
It started many hundreds of years ago when Indians discovered the dramatic healing properties of a tea made from the bark of Pine-Trees.
It cured a great many ailments of the early sea-farers.
It was finally discovered that the matter that gave the benefits was this OPC chemical series, and later it was discovered that other "Old-Wives" remedies had similar benefits eg. Green Tea, and Wine, Olive-Leaves, etc..
When these were analised, they discovered the same group of chemicals - OPC's.. The picture is starting to come together now.
Meanwhile , health practioners are spruking about
the benefits of natural/organic HIGHLY colored vegetables.. Again it's the OPC's that are the main 'healers' within these plants. I could go on but I won't..
Pomegranate is just ONE of thousands of foods that exhibit these chemicals, that are good for us, and largely work by attacking the nasties - the free-radicals, that are associated with illness and cancer etc.
So we then need a measure of how to gauge this effectives.. Enter ORACOxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity
) of Selected Foodshttp://www.ars.usda.gov/SP2UserFiles/Place/12354500/Data/ORAC/ORAC_R2.pdf
NOW - we have a quantification of which foods provide the MOSTEST benefit..
So when you look at Pomegranate Juice, just read ORAC benefit, OPC content etc. etc. and enjoy the flavor.
When we talk of these products , we find that there are MANY professing to have the same properties.. We have the original Pycnogenol, and OPC-3 and OPCXtra, and Resveratrol, Olive-Leaf Extract etc.etc.etc. etc.
What WE firstly need is the beneficial components, if we can get them, and then a convenient delivery method.
Enter eg. OPCXtra.. It is sold as a powder and when mixed with the right amount of water, becomes an IsoTonic mixture, meaning that it is the same partial pressures (?) of chemicals in the blood. This means that it can be absorbed into the gut within minutes, and hence avoid being altered by stomach contents, and have the ORAC benefits reduced.
So - back to your question "What about
a reconstitute drink",
well I say - what are you taking - a drink or the OPC's contained in it.
You want a convenient source of OPC's. The two best know ones are the OPC-3 and the OPCXtra products.. OPC-3 is sold by Market-America , and OPCXtra by OPCXtra Key Ingredients Found In Isotonix OPC-3?: $70/300Gms
Grape Seed Extract : 25 mg
Red Wine Extract: 25 mg
Pine Bark Extract (Pycnogenol?) 25 mg
Bilberry Extract : 25 mg
Citrus Extract (Bioflavonoids): 25 mg.
Key Ingredients found in OPCXtra : $40/300gms

Vitamin E 15iu
From there you can head in all directions looking at Resveratrol, and Anti-Oxidants, and Pomegranate Extract.
BUT - From my understanding, we are talking about
all the same technology and processes.
Sorry for the long response, but I could go on !
ANYONE - with Cancer or having had cancer, would be most wise to investigate this field of research.. IMHO (but what would I know?)
