The gut microbiota urolithin metabotypes revisited: the human metabolism of ellagic acid is mainly determined by aging

Author affiliations

Abstract

Understanding individuals’ response to dietary bioactives is crucial for personalized nutrition. We report here for the first time in a Caucasian cohort (5–90 years, n = 839) that aging is the main factor that determines the gut microbiota involved in the ellagic acid–ellagitannin metabolism (urolithin metabotypes), with potential consequences for human health.
