Ellagic Acid Overview

Ellagic acid is a powerful antioxidant, polyphenol found in red raspberries, Arctic bramble, and cloudberries strawberries and walnuts. Human research reveals that the body readily absorbs ellagic acid from red raspberries, leading to inhibition of abnormal division of cells and promoting the normal death of healthy cells. Ellagic acid has been clinically shown to cause apoptosis (cell death) in certain cancer cells and has exhibited anti-carcinogenic effects against a wide range of carcinogens in several tissues. Ellagic acid contributes to significant inhibition of colon, esophageal, liver, lung, tongue, and skin cancers in studies with rats and mice, both in vitro and in vivo.

Research Overview

Research on ellagic acid shows the following effects:
1. Reduces the risk of esophageal cancer by collecting in the epithelial cells in the digestive tract
2. Reduces the development of esophageal cancer
3. Decreases lipid peroxidation
4. Is an effective free radical scavenger
5. Reduces tumor incidence and development
6. Protects from radiation-induced chromosome damage
7. Prevents liver cancer
8. Prevents lung cancer
9. Prevents skin cancer
10. Prevents embryo mutation and carcinogenesis in animal models given toxins
11. Works synergistically with quercetin as an anticarcinogenic
