There’s a new superfood in town: pomegranates could keep you on the road for longer
New research1 suggests pomegranate could be the next superfood. The seedy fruit contains an abundance of ellagitannins, a type of polyphenol. These are converted in the gut into a compound called urolithin A (stay with us). This then recycles worn-out mitochondria (our cells’ energy-producing powerhouses), boosting muscle function and possibly slowing age-related decline in muscle mass. In the study, ageing mice who were given pomegranate-derived urolithin A had 42 per cent more endurance in a running test compared with a control group. Opt for fresh fruit or cold-pressed juice, as the pasteurisation
2 process can lower the ellagitannin content.
