Urolithin A – Powder, 5g
Urolithin A is considered to help stimulate mitophagy, which is the replacing of damaged mitochondria with healthy mitochondria, the organelle responsible for energy production in every cell of your body.
Urolithin A is produced by the body after ingesting compounds found in pomegranate such as punicalagins and ellagitannins and is considered to help recycle defective mitochondria, our cellular powerhouses. Over time, the constant strain of energy production takes a toll on the mitochondria and energy output declines. At this point, these mitochondria function poorly. In young, healthy cells, the drop in performance of the mitochondria is identified by the body and the mitochondria are swiftly broken down, disassembled, and eliminated in a process called mitophagy.

What is Urolithin A?
Urolithin A is a metabolite compound resulting from the transformation of ellagitannins by the gut bacteria. It belongs to the class of organic compounds known as benzo-coumarins or dibenzo-α-pyrones. Its precursors – ellagic acids and ellagitannins – are ubiquitous in nature, including edible plants, such as pomegranates, strawberries, raspberries, and walnuts. Since the 2000s, urolithin A has been the subject of preliminary studies regarding its possible biological effects.

Additional Information on Urolithin A
Urolithin A is not known to be found in any food source. Its bioavailability mostly depends on individual microbiota composition, as only some bacteria are able to convert ellagitannins into urolithins.
