Description: Hydroxytyrosol (HT) is a polyphenol mainly present in extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) that has a potent antioxidant activity. Moreover, HT provides other beneficial benefits that may be of importance for human health, namely anti-inflammatory and anticancer effects, enhancement of endothelial and vascular function, anti-steatotic  properties, and improvement of endoplasmic reticulum stress, autophagy and mitochondrial function. Interestingly, HT is the only polyphenol recognized by the European Food Safety Authority as a protector of low density lipoproteins (LDL) from oxidative damage, considering the finding that HT reduces the expression of adhesion molecules in endothelial cells, preventing the oxidation of LDL.
