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.
Ellagic acid is used for cancer, dark skin patches on the face (melasma), memory and thinking skills (cognitive function), diabetes, and many other purposes.
