Hydroxytyosol is a polyphenol compound naturally occurring in olive fruits and branches and leaves. It has a variety of unique biological activities, such as anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antibacterial and antioxidant effects. This component has no obvious toxic reaction, and is widely used in medicine, food, cosmetics and other fields.
Hydroxytyrool can inhibit the proliferation of human promyelocytic leukemia cell HL60, adenocarcinoma cell HT29 and HT29 clon19A, and female breast cancer McF-7 cells, and achieve good anticancer activity by inhibiting the circulation of tumor cells and inducing their apoptosis.
In recent years, further research on hydroxytyrosol has found that it can bind to GP41 protein and block the re-entry of the immune deficiency virus (HIV) into host cells, which may be used in the prevention and treatment of AIDS in the future.
Hydroxytyrosol also plays a very important role in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, prevention of osteoporosis, protection of nerves and other aspects, so it can be seen that hydroxytyrosol has a wide application prospect in the medical field.
