It is well documented that the gut microbiome plays an essential role in human health. Urolithin A is a postbiotic derived from the microbe metabolism of polyphenols in pomegranates and berries. This study demonstrated that Urolithin A had a positive effect on reducing inflammation and improving the gut barrier.

Imbalances in the gut microbiome are associated with a number of health conditions, including inflammatory bowel disease, neurological disorders, obesity, and diabetes.
The microbes in our gut produce important metabolites that confer health onto the human host. Urolithin A is one of these metabolites.
Urolithin A exhibited a robust protective effect on the gut barrier by up regulating tight junctions and promoting anti-inflammatory activities.
Urolithin A was able to mitigate colitis in pre-clinical disease models.
