Pomevie – At a Glance
Pomevie is meant to cleanse the digestive system using pomegranate, a strong antioxidant. Over the last few years this fruit has become very popular, and even been named one of the top 10 superfoods. Pomevie uses this media attention to its advantage in its marketing, leading people to believe that Pomevie has been endorsed by news programs and talk shows. (Although Oprah did a feature on ‘superfoods,’ Pomevie was not mentioned, nor was any other pomegranate cleanser.)
There appears to be some “official” websites for Pomevie, but none of them have much information on them. The Pomclear website has similar graphics, design, and content. The majority of the site points the user toward ordering the product, and advertises a free 15-day trial period. Be sure to read the small print, though, because it lets you know that acceptance of the offer automatically enrolls you in the auto-shipping program at a monthly cost of $39.99 — conveniently billed to your credit card, of course.
There is a user review on the website, but no ingredients list or frequently asked questions.
Pomevie – Facts
There is a site not associated with Pomevie that lists the ingredients, but it takes some looking to find it. Because the ingredients are part of a proprietary blend, the quantities of each are not provided. The ingredients are as follows: Fennel Powder, Psyllium Husk (a powerful fibrous substance), Licorice, Buckthorn, Ginger, Cascara Sagrada (a laxative), Goldenseal, Rhubarb, and Pomegranate. No information is provided as to why these particular ingredients were used, although Psyllium Husk and Cascara Sagrada are common ingredients in various other detoxification and colon cleansing products. The website doesn’t explain anything about how pomegranate works to cleanse, only mentioning what a powerful antioxidant it is.
Pomevie should be taken as one capsule in the morning and one later in the afternoon, even though these instructions are not found on the website, or even the bottle. They don’t explain the amount of time it will take, before you see results from Pomevie.

Pomevie – Negative Features
- They don’t provide an ingredient list or a product label.

- No diet websites have any positive testimonials about the product.
- When the free trial is ordered the customer is automatically enrolled in the auto-ship program.

- Both Pomevie and the website look very similar to Pomclear, another product.
- There have never been any clinical trials to prove effective Pomevie is.
Pomevie – Conclusion
Even with all the hype about superfoods and pomegranate, most people are not going to plunk down almost $40 for this product. If more information was provided by the makers, such as an ingredient list and results of clinical trials, more people would be willing to try it.
Pomevie may be a useful antioxidant, but since there is no disclosure of how much pomegranate it contains, there is no way to know for sure.
