Total polyphenolic fraction (TPF) – Assessment of the antioxidant activity of an olive oil total polyphenolic fraction and hydroxytyrosol from a Greek Olea europea variety in endothelial cells and myoblasts

Olive oil constitutes the basis of the Mediterranean diet, and it seems that its biophenols, such as hydroxytyrosol may scavenge free radicals, attracting distinct attention due to their beneficial effects in many pathological conditions, such as cancer. To the best of our knowedge, this is the first study in which the functional properties of an Olive Oil total polyphenolic fraction (TPF) and pure hydroxytyrosol were examined in order to determine their antioxidant effects at a cellular level in endothelial cells and myoblasts.

Oleocanthal from Olea europaea

The Virgin Olive Oil phenolic compounds include about 30 molecules from different chemical classes: phenolic alcohols, such as hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol, phenolic acids (e.g., caffeic and vanillic), flavones (luteolin and apigenin), lignans, and secoiridoids. The latter group represents the largest fraction. The principal ones are the aglycon forms of oleuropein and ligstroside, the dialdehydic forms of their decarboxymethylated derivatives, known as oleacein and oleocanthal. A protective role against cardiovascular, metabolic diseases, and human cancer has been attributed to hydroxytyrosol, oleocanthal, and oleacein –

Extra Virgin Oil Polyphenols Improve the Protective Effects of Hydroxytyrosol in an In Vitro Model of Hypoxia-Reoxygenation of Rat Brain

Hydroxytyrosol (HT) is the component primarily responsible for the neuroprotective effect of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). However, it is less effective on its own than the demonstrated neuroprotective effect of EVOO, and for this reason, it can be postulated that there is an interaction between several of the polyphenols of EVOO.

Protective Effects and Benefits of Olive Oil and Its Extracts on Women’s Health

Women and men share similar diseases; however, women have unique issues, including gynecologic diseases and diseases related to menstruation, menopause, and post menopause. In recent decades, scientists paid more attention to natural products and their derivatives because of their good tolerability and effectiveness in disease prevention and treatment. Olive oil is an essential component in the Mediterranean diet, a diet well known for its protective impact on human well-being.

Effects of Hydroxytyrosol on Atherosclerotic Lesions in apoE-Deficient Mice

The Mediterranean diet is associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular mortality despite the high intake of fat, mainly derived from olive oil. Olive oil is a fruit juice with a complex composition where triglycerides of oleic acid are the main component but other biologically active compounds such as tocopherols, phenols, phytosterols, and triterpenoids are also present.

Hydroxytyrosol: Health Benefits and Use as Functional Ingredient in Meat

Hydroxytyrosol (HXT) is a phenolic compound drawn from the olive tree and its leaves as a by-product obtained from the manufacturing of olive oil. It is considered the most powerful antioxidant compound after gallic acid and one of the most powerful antioxidant compounds between phenolic compounds from olive tree followed by oleuropein, caffeic and tyrosol.

The phenolic compounds of olive oil: structure, biological activity and beneficial effects on human health

The Mediterranean diet is rich in vegetables, cereals, fruit, fish, milk, wine and olive oil and has salutary biological functions. Epidemiological studies have shown a lower incidence of atherosclerosis, cardiovascular diseases and certain kinds of cancer in the Mediterranean area. Olive oil is the main source of fat, and the Mediterranean diet’s healthy effects can in particular be attributed not only to the high relationship between unsaturated and saturated fatty acids in olive oil but also to the antioxidant property of its phenolic compounds. The main phenolic compounds, hydroxytyrosol and oleuropein, which give extra-virgin olive oil its bitter, pungent taste, have powerful antioxidant activity both in vivo and in vitro.

Hydroxytyrosyl: Antioxidant and Skin Regenerative Properties

Since olive oil is used in the preparation of many cosmetic formulations, we explored the antioxidant capacity of HtyOle in human keratinocytes. Formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and malondialdehyde (MDA), as well as activity of Glutathione-S-transferase (GST) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) were decreased by HtyOle.

Biological Relevance of Extra Virgin Olive Oil Polyphenols Metabolites

More than 30 phenolic compounds have been identified in EVOO, but not all of them are present in every oil. The large variety of polyphenols found in EVOO is different in chemical structures and concentrations (0.02–600 mg/kg), depending on several factors including: variety, region in which the olive is grown, agricultural techniques, maturity of the olive fruit at harvest, and processing.

The Health Benefiting Mechanisms of Virgin Olive Oil Phenolic Compounds

Virgin olive oil (VOO) is credited as being one of the many healthful components associated with the Mediterranean diet. Mediterranean populations experience reduced incidence of chronic inflammatory disease states and VOO is readily consumed as part of an everyday Mediterranean dietary pattern. VOO is rich in phenolic compounds and the health promoting benefits of these phenolics are now established.
