Phenolic compound in Evoo: good for the Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease


A new study carried out by researchers from the University of Jaen and the Bellvitge Institute for Biomedical Research, examined the effects of tyrosol, a phenolic compound, present in the Extra Virgini Olive Oil, on Caenorhabditis elegans worms and they discovered that, the worms treated with tyrosol enjoyed a significantly longer lifespan of around 21.33 days compared to untreated worms, whose average lifespan, was just 18.67 days, and concluded that tyrosol, delayed neurodegeneration in worms and reduced oxidative stress and for that reason, could have the potential to become a good nutraceutical compound and a strong neuroprotective activity against various forms of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s
disease. So, according to the research, the tyrosol, reduce the levels of molecules associated with damaging DNA and cellular structures, with an effective antioxidant, antidamaging and anti – infiammatory benefits to the brain.A new study carried out by researchers from the University of Jaen and the Bellvitge Institute for Biomedical Research, examined the effects of tyrosol, a phenolic compound, present in the Extra Virgini Olive Oil, on Caenorhabditis elegans worms and they discovered that, the worms, treated with tyrosol enjoyed a significantly longer lifespan of around 21.33 days compared to untreated worms, whose average lifespan, was just 18.67 days, and concluded that tyrosol, delayed neurodegeneration in worms and reduced oxidative stress and for that reason, could have the potential to become a good nutraceutical compound and a strong neuroprotective activity against various forms of Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.
