Ellagic acid is a polyphenol found in large amounts in pomegranate seeds.

Plants produce this antioxidant to defend against infections and pests. There are many species of antioxidants. Each of them plays a specific role in the maintenance of good health by combating free radicals and the resulting oxidative stress in specific organs.

But not all antioxidants are created equal. What sets ellagic acid apart? Research evidence indicates that ellagic acid antioxidant power is active in the liver and pancreas where it can fight inflammation and fibrosis. But, ellagic acid is not just a simple antioxidant. Animal studies showed that it can also act as a detoxifier by binding to toxins and assisting hepatic detoxification phases I and II (1). It was recently found that the gut bacteria metabolize ellagic acid resulting in the production of bioactive urolithins A, B, C, and D. Urolithin A is the most active and effective gut metabolite and acts as a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant agent (2, 3, 4). This process sets ellagic acid apart from other antioxidants.

A simple web search for Urolithins will show that metabolites can greatly benefit overall health. It is highly recommended to have a healthy gut microbiota to maximize benefits provided by ellagic acid. The use of Probiotics will help in this respect.
