[Synopsis]Ellagic acid is one of natural polyphenols contained in various plants such as pomegranates, raspberries, or walnuts. Recent studies have revealed that ellagic acid and urolithins, microflora human metabolites of ellagic acid, are functional factors having various bioactivities including antioxidation, anticancer, the amelioration of insulin resistance, and the regulation of adipocytokine secretion. There is possibility that ellagic acid and its metabolites are effective to prevent the onset and/or progress of several diseases such as cancer and diabetes.
