Before I begin...
Please, let's not re-open the argument about whether pomegranate might help. Let us agree to respect differences about that, since it was recently aired in another thread.

Strictly for those who think it might help, I wonder if anyone has tried this particular source:
www.brownwoodacres.com/pomegranate_juice_concentrate.php

I had an email exchange with the manufacturer who says that 1 1/2 tablespoons is enough to mix with 8 oz of water to achieve the same concentration as fresh juice. If this is the case, then a 32 oz bottle lasts about 40 days and works out to a cost of less than 50 cents per 8 oz glass.

They also sell softgel capsules - a bottle of 60 for $20. Each tab has 50 mg of Elllagic acid and 80 mg of anthocyanins

Here is a couple of posts on other opinions of different sources, if you care.

www.imminst.org/forum/topic/13255-who-is-taking-pomegranate-juice-or-extract/

My googling reveals that Brownwood acres has been subject to the same FDA complaint about labeling and health claims, but otherwise I'm not seeing anything negative about the quality of their products.

Thanks in advance...

I buy my pomegranate extract capsules on-line from Life Extensions, They have sales, and you can get further discounts for buying larger quantities. I pay between $15 and $20 US for 30 400mg capsules. A 30 day supply for me. Not cheap but I am concerned about quality and these guys have a pretty good reputation. This is a good question. I would love to find a cheaper quality source.
