BACKGROUND & AIMS Hypertension is one of the most important risk factors for coronary heart disease. Recent studies have pointed out the possibility that virgin olive oil (VOO) may lower blood pressure in hypertensive (HT) subjects. However, until the date there is scarce information regarding elderly people. The present study was designed to assess the effect of dietary VOO on blood pressure in medically treated hypertensive elderly patients. METHODS 31 medically treated HT elderly patients… Expand
Chapter 85 – Virgin Olive Oil and Blood Pressure in Hypertensive Elderly Subjects
Publisher Summary In order to study the normotensive effect of virgin olive oil (VOO) in the elderly, and the possible influence of non-oleic acid components of the oil, two different VOO of theExpand
Evaluation of the effect of dietary virgin olive oil on blood pressure and lipid composition of serum and low-density lipoprotein in elderly type 2 diabetic subjects.
TLDR
New evidence is provided of the effects of dietary virgin olive oil on blood pressure and LDL oxidation in type 2 diabetics and the components responsible for the observed effects are the monounsaturated fatty acids and the presence of antioxidants in the oil. Expand
Virgin Olive Oil and Hypertension.
TLDR
Data from human and animal studies have shown that the consumption of virgin olive oil shares most of the beneficial effects of the Mediterranean diet, including those with regard to lowering BP. Expand
Olive Oil : Benefits on the Risk of Coronary Heart Disease
Olive oil is known to improve several cardiovascular risk factors. Olive oil has been associated with reduced level of plasma cholesterol and triglycerides, possibly due to its high monounsaturatedExpand
Effects of Olive Oil on Blood Pressure: Epidemiological, Clinical, and Mechanistic Evidence
TLDR
The consumption of olive oil may be advised as the optimal fat choice in the management protocols for hypertension in both healthy and cardiovascular disease patients, due to its high oleic acid and antioxidant polyphenol content. Expand
Chapter 84 – Olive Oil Consumption and Reduced Incidence of Hypertension: The SUN Study
TLDR
Excessive weight, lack of physical activity, excessive consumption of alcohol and sodium, and a low intake of potassium are factors that have been consistently found to increase the risk of hypertension. Expand
Coconut Oil Supplementation Does Not Affect Blood Pressure Variability and Oxidative Stress: A Placebo-Controlled Clinical Study in Stage-1 Hypertensive Patients
TLDR
The analysis of blood pressure indicated absence of antihypertensive effect of EVCO alone or combined with physical training, and no effects on blood pressure variability and oxidative stress were observed in the supplemented hypertensive patients. Expand
Total polyphenol excretion and blood pressure in subjects at high cardiovascular risk.
TLDR
Polyphenol intake, assessed via TPE in urine, was negatively associated with BP levels and prevalence of hypertension in an elderly Mediterranean population at high cardiovascular risk. Expand
Olive oil consumption and reduced incidence of hypertension: The SUN study
TLDR
In a Mediterranean population, olive oil consumption is found to be associated with a reduced risk of hypertension only among men, and the lack of association observed among women might be attributed to the overall lower incidence of hypertension found among females and the resulting lower statistical power. Expand
Different consumed oils and metabolic parameters in type 2 diabetes patients in diabetes society of Natanz.
TLDR
Consumption of solid and semi-solid oils, especially animal fat, cause increasing in blood pressure of diabetic type 2 patients; but consumption of olive oil, and to a lesser extent liquid vegetable oils, related to lesser increasing in their blood pressure. Expand

Lack of effect of fish oil supplementation on blood pressure in treated hypertensives.
TLDR
In treated hypertensives with controlled blood pressures, any additional fall in blood pressure produced by dietary supplementation with fish oil is so small that the requirement for antihypertensive drug therapy is unlikely to be reduced. Expand
Olive oil and reduced need for antihypertensive medications.
TLDR
A slight reduction in saturated fat intake, along with the use of extra-virgin olive oil, markedly lowers daily antihypertensive dosage requirement, possibly through enhanced nitric oxide levels stimulated by polyphenols. Expand
Olive oil consumption and reduced incidence of hypertension: The SUN study
TLDR
In a Mediterranean population, olive oil consumption is found to be associated with a reduced risk of hypertension only among men, and the lack of association observed among women might be attributed to the overall lower incidence of hypertension found among females and the resulting lower statistical power. Expand
Effects of dietary virgin olive oil phenols on low density lipoprotein oxidation in hyperlipidemic patients
TLDR
It is suggested that the daily intake of extra virgin olive oil in hyperlipidemic patients could reduce the susceptibility of LDL to oxidation, not only because of its high monounsaturated fatty acid content but probably also because of the antioxidative activity of its phenolic compounds. Expand
Olive oil, the Mediterranean diet, and arterial blood pressure: the Greek European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study.
TLDR
Mutual adjustment between olive oil and vegetables, which are frequently consumed together, indicated that olive oil has the dominant beneficial effect on arterial blood pressure in this population. Expand
Vitamin E prevents extensive lipid peroxidation in patients with hypertension
TLDR
The data presented here suggests that vitamin E protects against the increased risk of vascular disease in patients with hypertension by reducing the susceptibility to oxidative modification of LDL and may act as an inhibitor of atherogenesis. Expand
Effective blood pressure treatment improves LDL-cholesterol susceptibility to oxidation in patients with essential hypertension.
TLDR
In nondiabetic, nonobese, normolipidaemic patients with essential hypertension, LDL susceptibility to copper- and cell-mediated oxidation is increased and BP normalization is associated with a significant improvement, but not a full reversal, of this abnormality. Expand
Effect of ingestion of virgin olive oil on human low-density lipoprotein composition
TLDR
The results support the idea that daily ingestion of virgin olive oil could protect LDL from oxidation and an increase in antioxidants and oleic acid in LDL was observed as well as an improvement of LDL resistance to oxidation. Expand

TLDR
Reducing salt intake, an increase in physical activity and body weight reduction have been clearly demonstrated to be effective in reducing blood pressure values in women and olive oil seems to be particularly helpful since it is able to produce significant blood pressure reductions, which are greater than those observed with sunflower oil.

Plasma lipid modifications in elderly people after administration of two virgin olive oils of the same variety (Olea europaea var. hojiblanca) with different triacylglycerol composition
TLDR
It is demonstrated that blood pressure and plasma lipids can be modified by the consumption of VOO in elderly people, but that the extent of such modification depends on the composition and amount of active minor components and triacylglycerol molecular species. Expand
