The absorption and metabolism of olive oil compounds

- Dec 12, 2017 -

BPs that feed olives increase the plasma antioxidant levels of the body and to some extent support the mechanics of olive BPs that cross the cell membrane. 


The penetration of BPs into cells is often the first step in their biological activity, so this step will affect their biological efficiency. 


Also,one study bionic the transport mechanism of oleuropein through bovine red blood cell membranes. 


Manna et al. (2000) examined the molecular mechanism of hydroxytyrosol transport using a Caco-2 monolayer differentiation model and found that the compound appears to be administered in a passive and bidirectional manner. BPs that feed olives increase the plasma antioxidant levels of the body and to some extent support the mechanics of olive BPs that cross the cell membrane. The penetration of BPs into cells is often the first step in their biological activity, so this step will affect their biological efficiency. 


The experimental results show that oleuropein disappeared from the suspension medium up to 27. 31%, while being absorbed by cells accounted for 24.19%, retained in the cell membrane was only 3.12%. Can be seen, oleuropein glycosides can cross the red blood cell membrane reached the cell. It can be expected from this study that olive BPs are well absorbed by the body.
