What the article says:
Hydroxytyrosol has been observed to have a significant reduction in inflammation. It was observed that Hydroxytyrosol was capable of inducing a significant reduction in oxidized LDL, malondialdehyde, triglycerides and visceral adiposity index. It was also observed that Hydroxytyrosol was able to upregulate catalase, superoxide dismutase 1 and upstream transcription factor 1.
Why this is important:
Inflammation is a key consideration for healthy looking skin. Inflammation of the skin is characterised as redness, puffiness, and irritation. Inflammation can be observed in skin conditions such as: blemishes, rashes, acne, and eczema. Reduction of inflammation of the skin is beneficial to the general health and overall appearance of the skin. Although the article does not directly speak to the skin, it does provide insight as to how Hydroxytyrosol reduces inflammation.
