Pomegranate compound 'could combat' complications of ageing
Conclusion This was a mixed animal study that aimed to investigate the effect of compounds called urolithins first in roundworms and then rodents. Urolithins are formed during the breakdown of ellagitannins, which are found in pomegranates, nuts and berries.

The study found that one of the urolithins in particular, urolithin A, seems to improve muscle function in rodents. We do not know conclusively why, but the results suggested this was due to improving the quality of the mitochondria by increasing the rate of destructi...
