Thanks for your reply. I've seen some studies on Pubmed but "in vitro". I'll stick with pomegranate juice - the powder would make me wonder how they're extracting it, what chemicals? I figure that the juice can't hurt.

The National Institutes of Health note there is little strong evidence on specific use of pomegranate juice. Visit the web page below for more info; it was last updated in September 2016.

Federal agencies have taken action against companies selling pomegranate juice and supplements for deceptive advertising and making drug-like claims about the products. For more on this, view the NCCIH Director’s Page entitled Excessive Claims.

On the other hand, respected bladder cancer experts have long extolled the general benefits of fruits, vegetables and juices high in nourishing properties such as anti- oxidants.

Good nutrition can only help, but there are potential drug interactions with pomegranate juice. Check with your doctor.

Pomegranate juice is showing some promise as an adjunct to BCG. Anyone know of any in vivo studies that might indicate dosage?
