Ellagic acid

Ingredient Type: Antioxidant

Ellagic acid is a naturally occurring polyphenolic compound that is commonly found in certain fruits and vegetables, such as pomegranates, strawberries, raspberries, and walnuts. It has been studied extensively for its potential health benefits, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as potential anticancer effects.

In protein powders, ellagic acid is often included as an ingredient due to its potential health benefits. It may help to protect the body against oxidative stress and inflammation, which can be beneficial for athletes and active individuals. However, it is important to note that the amount of ellagic acid found in protein powders is generally quite small and may not have a significant impact on overall health.

Ellagic acid is generally considered safe when consumed in moderate amounts through food sources. However, there is limited research on the safety of ellagic acid supplements, and they should not be used in high doses.
