Decreased blood flow and oxygenation of the foetal brain influences the threat of preterm labor and risks brain damage, however a new study has shown some benefit with consuming pomegranate juice. Pomegranate juice is believed to have neuroprotective and anti-aging properties that prevent hypoxic brain injury, which affects 2 in 1,000 live births to term, and more in births less than 34 weeks gestation. Premature delivery is more common in mothers with diabetes, low socioeconomic status, younger mothers, weak cervix or previous surgery to the cervix, and a history of miscarriage.
