How does hydroxytyrosol play a role in cancer prevention?
Hydroxytyrosol can inhibit tumor development in many stages and has certain spectral properties.
Hydroxytyrosol not only protects DNA inside cells, but also protects enzymes from damage by free radicals and ROS, thereby preventing cancer. Hydroxytyosol has a stronger antioxidant stress effect than olivin and other esterification compounds.
It has been proved that hydroxytyrosol can reduce dioxin-induced oxidative stress and DNA damage in peripheral blood monocytes, and also reduce morphological changes of cells. In addition, at low concentrations, hydroxytyrosol can inhibit malondialdehyde, H2O2 fatty acid and 7-ketol cholesterol production. It can effectively block the changes of phosphorylation of ERK and Akt /Pkb, and also inhibit the damage of DNA by foreign factors such as ULTRAVIOLET B and benzocallopyrene. Hydroxytyrosol plays a role in inhibiting the proliferation of cancer cells and promoting the apoptosis of cancer cells, thus exerting its anticancer effect.
