How does hydroxytyrosol prevent cancer?
Hydroxytyrosol can inhibit tumor development in many stages and has a certain broad spectrum.
Hydroxytyrosol not only protects DNA in cells, but also protects enzymes from damage from free radicals and reactive oxygen species, thereby preventing cancer. Hydroxytyrosol has stronger antioxidant stress effect than olivin and other esters.
Hydroxytyrosol can reduce dioxin-induced oxidative stress and DNA damage in peripheral blood mononuclear cells, and also reduce cell morphological changes. In addition, at low concentrations, hydroxytyrosol inhibits the formation of malondialdehyde, H2O2 fatty acids and 7-ketone cholesterol, effectively blocks the phosphorylation of ERK and Akt/Pkb, and inhibits DNA damage due to external factors such as ULTRAVIOLET B and phenylhydrazine. Hydroxytyrosol can inhibit the proliferation and apoptosis of cancer cells, thus exerting its anticancer effect.
