American Cancer Society:
In a published report states that ellagic acid supplements may
slow the growth of some cell abnormalities. This is promising, at this time, there is a lot of ongoing research to find evidence from human clinical studies showing that ellagic acid in any form can prevent or treat cancer. Further research is needed to determine what specific benefits it may have.
Meeker red raspberries are high
in Phytonutrients for Antioxidant, Antimicrobial and Anticarcinogenic
The red raspberry (rubus Idaeus) fruit contains bioactive polyphenols including anthocyanins and ellagitannins that exhibit anti-inflammatory properties. Ellagic acid, a phenolic compound, is present in plants in the form of complexes called ellagitannins. When these complexes are digested they yield ellagic acid. Ellagic acid exhibits significant anticancer activity.
The crucial substances are quercetin, kaempferol, and
the cyanidin-based particle known as cyanidin-3-glucosylrutinoside
and cyanidin-3-rutinoside. The flavonoid molecules are classified
as anthocyanins, belonging to the group of compounds giving red-raspberries
their intense red pigment.
Raspberries anthocyanins give
these delicious red-berries particular antioxidant properties,
together with some antimicrobial power,
including the capacity to counter overdevelopment of some bacteria
and fungi in the body (i.e. the yeast Candida albicans,
which often is a factor in vaginal infections and
could be a conferring cause in irritable bowel syndrome).
