Olive oil polyphenols contribute to the protection of blood lipids from LDL cholesterol oxidative stress.
This claim may be used only for olive oil which contains at least 5 mg of hydroxytyrosol and its derivatives (eg. oleuropein and tyrosol) per 20g of olive oil. In order to bear the claim, the beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 20 g of olive oil. OliveHeart® possesses such level of polyphenols.
The Mediterranean Diet, including Extra Virgin Olive Oil, prevents the appearance of cardiovascular diseases (cardiovascular death, myocardium infarct and/or stroke) in comparison with low-fat diets.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is characterized by its high oleic acid composition, but mainly by the presence of minor compounds with an enormous value, known as polyphenols. It is one of the keys of Mediterranean Diets and the antioxidant essence of virgin olive oil.
