A Systematic Review: Olive Oil for Liver Health

A Systematic Review: Olive Oil for Liver Health

A recent review analyzed six randomized controlled trials that used olive oil for cooking or consumption to investigate its impact on liver health. Can olive oil repair the liver? Can it help alleviate hepatic steatosis and modulate liver enzyme levels? If so, why? Find a summary of the findings on the...

Phenolic compounds in extra virgin olive oil have been linked to anti-cancer benefits. There are a few mechanisms of action researchers believe may play a role. A study released in September 2023 in Biomedicine and Pharmacotherapy has linked two phenolic compounds in olive oil, oleocanthal and oleacein, to anti-angiogenesis effects.

Oleocanthal has been noted for its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s even been shown to have some characteristics in common with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug ibuprofen. Because inflammation is a major part of the pathology of joint degenerative disease such as arthritis, researchers are interested in whether supplementation with oleocanthal or consuming extra virgin...

One of the reasons researchers believe olive oil may play a protective role is because olive oil—in particular extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)— contains several bioactive compounds, such as monounsaturated fatty acids, triterpenes, and polyphenols which have been associated with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits and possibly even anti-cancer effects.

In addition to showing associations between aging and Alzheimer's Disease and changes to metabolism and behavior, this study also reinforced other research showing that oleocanthal could be a valuable tool for improving these factors. This study also showed that monitoring these changes in parameters could offer insight as to AD...
