Ellagic acid Function

  • Free radical scavenging

Many people know that free radicals are a substance that is harmful to human cells, which can lead to oxidation and pathological changes in human cells. Usually, the human body absorbs a certain amount of ellagic acid, which can remove free radicals in the body and improve the body’s anti-inflammatory properties. Oxidative capacity can reduce the damage of free radicals to human cells, maintain human health and slow down human aging.

  • Prevent lipid oxidation

When some lipids contained in the human body are oxidized, they will increase the burden on the human body, and some chronic diseases will occur. After the human body absorbs abundant ellagic acid, it can prevent the oxidation of these lipids and prevent the production of oxidized lipids in the body. It can prevent them from damaging human cells. Regular consumption of foods with ellagic acid can improve the activity of human tissue cells and prevent the body from developing pathological changes.

  • prevent melanin production

After ellagic acid is absorbed by the human body, it can also remove melanin in the body, accelerate the decomposition of melanin, and prevent the accumulation of melanin on the skin surface.
