BACKGROUND In vitro, olive phenols exert potent antioxidant and enzyme-modulating activities.

METHODS 22 patients were administered 40 mL/day of either extra-virgin, i. e. phenol rich, or refined, i. e. phenol poor, olive oils (EVOO or ROO, respectively, with nearly identical fatty acid composition), with a crossover design. Each treatment was carried out for… CONTINUE READING
