Resumo

There are very interesting and helpful the biological and pharmacological activities of fruits of ancient trees which co-evoluted with planet to welfare for living beings and environment, as Punica granatum (Pomegranate). Pomegranate total aqueous extract is really effective besides a smooth action, as preliminarily observed at recovering of eroded soil. In parallel, at a period time of increasing of incidence of malignancies, types of anemia and cardiovascular diseases, its juice and its oilment shall be investigated aiming to be used as a complementary intervention during conventional specific treatment. Our professional experience with its use as functional food empirically suggested its metabolic regulation associated with immunemodulatory action. But, mainly, to ethnical elder people (Romani, Hebrew, Pakistanese, Japanese) evoked affective memories, something very hopefull in this period time of special attention to signals of collective major and minor depression previously existent besides medical news about decreased cognitive function post-Covid19, around the world.  So our meaningfull qualitative strategy of psychosocial attention care seemed to be positive and, perhaps, stimulated neurotransmitters modulation way, as one probable mechanism of action. Analysis of this natural product effect and professional experience will be discussed, a posteriori, through the suitable method of evaluation.
