Chemical Information
NameMevalonic acid
DescriptionMevalonic acid (MVA) is a key organic compound in biochemistry. The anion of mevalonic acid, the predominant form in biological media, is known as mevalonate. This compound is of major pharmaceutical importance. Drugs, such as the statins, stop the production of mevalonate by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase. [Wikipedia]. Mevalonic acid is found in many foods, some of which are pepper (c. frutescens), cabbage, wild carrot, and white cabbage.
