The bioactive properties of Polyphenols found in Olive Oil and Olive Leaf contribute to many of the health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet. One of the major polyphenols found in olive oil and olive leaf is hydroxytyrosol. The physiological and pharmacological mechanisms of hydroxytyrosol provide cardioprotective, neuroprotective and metabolic actions that support supplementation and addition of virgin olive oil as a staple part of the a healthy diet.

The major health benefits of Hydroxytyrosol include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory anti-tumoral and anti-microbial properties, and supports metabolic and energy pathways. These actions of Hydroxytyrosol can be applied to nutraceuticals, food preservation, cosmeceuticals.


Antioxidant Capacity of Hydroxytyrosol

Hydroxytyrosol(HT) is considered to be one of the most effective antioxidants. It has the capacity to scavenge free radicals and prevent lipid oxidation. Additionally, to this direct action, HT also has an indirect mechanism of expressing enzymes involved with anti-oxidant activities.
