Poylphenol enriched olive oil
Poylphenol enriched olive oil. It’s the final frontier in research on oil benefits made by a group of Portuguese researchers. The students ascertained common olive oil enriched provides the same health effects as extra virgin with raised polyphenol content, so Efsa agreed on the health claim “contribute to protecting from limpid oxydating stress blood”.
The Lisbon university team gave laboratory guinea pigs oil enriched by 5mg hydroxytyrosol per kg, observing the same effect as good extravirgin. Even in the inflammatory process acute phase, improved guinea pig joint function was revealed with induced rheumatoid arthritis, with reduced histologic damage and oxydation.
Il lavoro “Protective effects of hydroxytyrosol-supplemented refined olive oil in animal models of acute inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis” was published in “The Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry”.
