What is SynPome(Pomegranate Seed Extract)?
SynPome(Pomegranate Seed Extract)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.
SynPome(Pomegranate Seed Extract)has been subject of preliminary studies regarding its possible biological effects.
SynPome(Pomegranate Seed Extract)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.
In laboratory studies, SynPome(Pomegranate Seed Extract)was shown to induce mitophagy, which is a selective recycling of mitochondria by autophagy, a process that cleans defective mitochondria following damage or stress, and tends to become less efficient during aging.This effect has been observed in different animal species (mammalian cells, rodents and C. elegans)
