Hydroxytyrosol`s proven effects:
- protects, dose-dependent, against LDL cholesterol oxidation, known as one of the first triggers of arteriosclerosis.
- It contributes to the protection against oxidative stress, promoting relaxation of arteries and therefore having an influence on the blood pressure levels.
- It is a potent anti-platelet aggregating agent, preventing the production of thrombus.
- It has protective effects on muscles against the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nitrogen (RON), during exercise. The lactate production is severely reduced during exercise. The contraction of muscles is protected against the presence of radicals.
- The intake of hydroxytyrosol increases our internal defensive system, by increasing the glutathione levels, our main endogenous defensive agent.
