What does hydroxytyrosol do when it acts on free radicals?

Hydroxytyrosol is a polyphenolic compound found naturally in the leaves and fruits of olive branches, mainly in the form of lipids. Hydroxytyrosol has strong antioxidant activity, as well as a variety of biological activities, so it is commonly used in medicine, health products, cosmetics, and other fields.

Hydroxytyrosol acts as an anti-free radical in skin care. In the process of contact with the outside world, the body’s various tissues will constantly produce free radicals. So, what is a free radical? Free radicals are substances that can damage the structure of our cells and cause apoptosis. Excess hydroxytyrosol may speed up our skin’s appearance of aging, and dullness, and even increase the risk of disease. Hydroxyl tyrosol can achieve the anti-radical effect through its excellent anti-oxidation property and scavenging ability. Our skin is easily exposed to UV rays, and hydroxytyrosol helps us reduce UV damage by absorbing and breaking down UV rays.

Hydroxytyrosol also has a strong restorative effect on the skin. When free radicals in our bodies compete for electrons in cells or gene protein molecules, they can destroy various physiological functions of cells, thereby increasing skin mutations, cancer, and aging. Hydroxytyrosol can not only inhibit oxidative DNA damage and reduce DNA damage caused by oxidation but also promote the recovery of the normal physiological function of glutathione. By neutralizing with free radicals, hydroxytyrosol can stabilize the activity of free radicals and reduce their invasiveness.
