Medical Olive Oil: The Best Fat in the World

Oleocanthal is one of the most prominent bioactive compounds in medical olive oil with an ibuprofen-like action.

Olive Health Benefits

Acts on Inflammation

Oleocanthal contained in medical olive oil prevents the production of pro-inflammatory COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes – the same way ibuprofen works. This pharmacological similarity provoked the interest of some of the best Medical Institutions in the world. Various clinical trials conducted thus far have verified its anti-inflammatory and therapeutic actions 1 2 3.

Best Anti-oxidant

In 2002 a grant agreement was approved by the European Food and Safety Administration under the name of EUROLIVE, to perform a clinical nutritional trial concerning the effect of polyphenol-rich olive oil, on oxidative stress and damage to lipids and DNA in humans. The results were profound and ground-shaking, leading to the EU Reg 432/2012, which in short states that any olive oil containing more than 250mg/kr of polyphenols contributes to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress 4 5.

Lowers High Blood Pressure

In 2018, the structure of (E)-elenolide, a previously unreported ingredient of olive oil, was determined after isolation and completely characterized by 1D and 2D NMR and mass spectrometry. MILESTONE high-phenolic olive oil was selected by the scientists due its very high concentration in this unique substance. This new olive oil ingredient has potential antihypertensive activity 6. In a another recent trial in healthy Australian adults found that the peripheral and central systolic blood pressure (SBP) decreased by 2.5 mmHg (95 percent CI: 4.7 to 0.3) and 2.7 mmHg (95 percent CI: 4.7 to 0.6), respectively 7.

Improves Arthritis Symptoms

Because inflammatory and oxidative factors are involved in the pathophysiology of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a reduction of those factors instantly leads to the ease of the RA symptoms.In a recent study, oleocanthal prevented bone, joint and cartilage rheumatic affections induced by collagen8. In addition, another study showed that the polyphenolic extract of high-phenolic olive oil could provide an attractive complement in management of diseases associated with over-activation of synovial fibroblasts, such as RA9.

Improves Cognitive Performance

In people at the early stage of Alzheimer’s symptoms, high phenolic olive oil has been linked to a notable improvement in mental function. For the first time, significantly improved brain performance in humans was linked to high phenolic olive oils rich in oleocanthal and oleacein10. To date, there is no other study that has examined in such detail the effects of extra virgin olive oil on the elderly with Mild Cognitive Impairment as an effective solution for cognitive impairment” said Prof. Magda Tsolaki, Professor at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

Regulates Diabetes Type-2

Daily consumption of polyphenol-rich olive oil improves metabolic control and circulating inflammatory adipokines profile in overweight Diabetes Type-2 patients11. In general, research suggests that high-phenolic olive oil can help to drop blood glucose and even minimize cholesterol levels which can contribute to the health concerns if left untreated.

No, common olive oil does not contain polyphenols, which are a group of antioxidants that have been associated with numerous health benefits. Polyphenols are found in varying concentrations in different types of olive oils, with medical olive oil containing the highest levels of polyphenols. The polyphenols in olive oil are dependent on a number of factors that include: DNA of the tree, cultivation practices, ripeness index of the olive fruit, micro-climatic conditions, processing and storage practices.
