Hydroxytyrosol,also called 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl ethanol, molecular formula C8H10O3, is a natural polyphenol compound with strong antioxidant activity, mainly in the form of esters in olive fruits and leaves.
Hydroxytyrosol can also be derived from olive oil and wastewater from olive oil processing, and has a variety of biological and pharmacological activities.
Hydroxytyrosol has a safe and excellent antioxidant effect, which is beneficial to bone growth and function, can also prevent and treat lung cancer, breast cancer, uterine cancer, prostate cancer and so on, promote the recovery of cancer in later stage and improve the effect of chemotherapy; Hydroxytyrosol can effectively reduce and inhibit the harm of smoking to human body; Hydroxytyrosol can be used in the treatment of lung cancer, breast cancer, uterine cancer and prostate cancer. Cardiovascular drugs; in addition, hydroxy tyrosol can be used as natural antimicrobial, antiviral and fungicidal products for agricultural and pest control purposes.
Overseas scholars have studied the pharmacological effects of hydroxytyrosol in many aspects, such as anti-cancer, anti-thrombosis, lipid regulation and anti-atherosclerosis, anti-pathogenic microorganisms, prevention and treatment of retinal macular degeneration, cartilage protection and anti-osteoporosis. Some studies have also explored the pharmacological mechanism of hydroxytyrosol at the molecular level. Domestic research on hydroxybutyrol is mainly manifested in health products and food additives, but less in its medicinal aspects. Recently, Liu Health and others applied for a patent for hydroxybutyrol in the treatment of prostate cancer. With the in-depth study of the pharmacological effects of hydroxybutyrol, its medicinal value needs to be developed urgently. It will be the future direction of the study of hydroxybutyrol to make pharmaceutical research and clinical research on hydroxybutyrol without losing time.
However, the mechanism of action of hydroxytyrosol is complex. Current studies are mostly limited to chemical experiments and in vitro biological experiments, and few in vivo studies, such as metabolism, absorption and utilization of hydroxytyrosol, neurohumoral regulation and free radical balance in vivo, will become the focus of future research.
Nanjing Shunxiang Pharmaceutical Technology Co., Ltd. is a company with 20 years of factory production history. It has formed a large production market of hydroxyl tyrosol, which can provide high quality hydroxyl tyrosol for domestic and foreign users and research and development institutions.
