 InstaPot Pomegranate Pulled Pork

** I received free samples of POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by POM Wonderful and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.**

POM Wonderful 100% Juice is powered by antioxidants. The pomegranate is whole-pressed, meaning a
unique blend of polyphenol antioxidants from two whole pomegranates – including its fruit, pith, and rind – is
found in each 8 oz bottle.
• Research that includes POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice uses 8 oz per day in its studies on muscle
strength recovery, memory and cognition, microbiome, and more.
• POM Wonderful 100% Juice is a good source of potassium. Each 8 oz bottle contains as much as a medium
banana.

 

I am always trying to find quick and easy recipes to make for my family. Pulled Pork has been a favorite of mine to make but I don’t always have time to make it since it takes time to cook. But then for Christmas, I received an Instant Pot and hello time savor!!

I made this pulled pork in just over an hour! We didn’t have any meat left over. Which is a bit of a bummer, my Husband and I  would have had it for lunch the next day.

Memory & Cognition

– In a preliminary 2013 UCLA study, it was found that a small group of older adults with age-related

memory complaints who drank 8 oz. of pomegranate juice daily had increased verbal memory performance and functional brain activity in fMRI testing after just four weeks.

*These early scientific results on the impact of pomegranate juice on the brain have not yet been adequately studied. Further clinical research on larger populations is needed to help establish causation and to determine the long-term effects of pomegranate on memory and cognition.

• Post-Workout

– 100% pomegranate juice is powered by unique polyphenols that early research suggests have promising results for post-workout muscle strength recovery. Certain types of polyphenol antioxidants, like those found in pomegranate juice, may help increase nitric oxide bioavailability by protecting it from breaking down in the body. Nitric oxide helps your body get the oxygen and nutrients it needs during exercise.

*Although the research reported is promising, additional clinical research is needed to establish causation and the potential impact of pomegranate polyphenols and exercise.
