Ellagic Acid Natural sources.:
The highest levels of ellagic acid are found in raspberries, strawberries,pomegranates,cranberries,and grapes.
Extracts from red raspberry leaves or seeds, pomegranates, or other sources are said to contain high levels of ellagic acid, and are available as dietary supplements in capsule, powder, or liquid forms. The best dose of these preparations is not known. Because they are sold as dietary supplements (as opposed to drugs) and are derived from foods, they are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the Food and Drug Administration. Companies that sell them are not required to prove effectiveness or additional safety, as long as they don't claim they can prevent, treat, or cure a specific disease.
Plants produce ellagic acid and convert it to a form of tannin known as ellagotannins. These are glucosides which are readily hydrolyzed by water to regenerate ellagic acid when the plants are eaten.
Ellagic acid is also a primary constituent of several tannin bearing plants which produce the category of tannins known as gallotannins.These, when hydrolyzed by water give rise to ellagic acid and gallic acid. Many such plants include Terminalia chebula, Terminalia belerica, two related species which are ingredients of the Ayurvedic medicine known as Triphala.
