Ellagic Acid Description
Ellagic Acid is a polyphenolic antioxidant that is abundant in many fruits, vegetables, plant bark, and peels. It has anti-carcinogenic, anti-mutagenic, anti-inflammatory, and organ-preserving properties, presumably related to its ability to alter cytochrome P450 activity and improve metabolism and clearance of xenobiotics, as well as alter immune function.
