Ellagic acid has demonstrated DNA-protecting properties‚ including the ability to bind to toxins and neutralize them. Studies have also shown that ellagic acid may protect against chromosome damage and reduce the effects of chemically induced hepatic structural degeneration. Medical findings in Europe show that ellagic acid has antibacterial and antiviral properties and may reduce the incidence of birth defects‚ promote wound healing‚ reduce and reverse chemically induces liver fibrosis and may help in the fight against heart disease. Research in the US indicates that‚ in the laboratory‚ ellagic acid slows the growth of abnormal colon cells in humans and promotes apoptosis (natural death) of cancer cells.
