Vitamin A and E levels of Punica granatum flowers on the antioxidant effects of experimentally induced diabetic rats. In experimental studies, vitamin E and vitamin A levels in blood serum decreased significantly due to diabetes (p <0.05). It was determined that vitamin A level increased in the 3th, 4th and 5th groups given pomegranate seedlings but not statistically significant. Vitamin E levels were significantly lower in diabetic rats compared to control (p <0.05). In the 5th group, vitamin E level was increased but statistical significance was not found. The amount of antioxidant vitamins (antioxidant vitamins A and E), which are antioxidant defense systems, is reduced in the period before the application of pomegranate juice, indicating the metabolic response to oxidative reactions. For this reason, diet is an indispensable part of diabetes treatment and should be carried out in conjunction with medical treatment. Use of sufficient amounts of plants such as pomegranate flowers containing antioxidants in combination with diet will help the enzymatic defense systems and help reduce the complications of diabetes. This is why it is thought that the pomegranate flower increases the level of antioxidant that reduces the oxidative stress caused by diabetes.
