The Effects of Hydroxytyrosol on the Brain

Hydroxytyrosol is a powerful antioxidant contained in extra virgin olive oil along with other polyphenolic substances, such as oleocanthal and other beneficial compounds for health such as oleic acid, essential polyunsaturated fats, vitamin A and vitamin E. The higher the polyphenol content, the higher the quality. For this reason, the determination of polyphenols is one of the criteria adopted to establish the characteristics of an oil.

Because it is Good

The beneficial properties of olive oil have already been demonstrated on the circulatory system and the intestinal system, while there are still many unknowns regarding the central nervous system. However, several studies have found that the brain can produce new neurons even in adulthood. It has also been verified that hydroxytyrosol, once ingested, stimulates the production of new neurons starting from stem cells.
