Virgin olive oil enriched with its own phenolic compounds promotes the main cardioprotective function of high-density lipoproteins (HDL)
The intake of olive oil enriched with phenolic compounds promotes ex vivo HDL-mediated macrophage cholesterol efflux in humans. Data provide direct evidence of the crucial role of olive oil PCs in the induction of macrophage-specific reverse cholesterol transport in vivo. The enrichment of olive oil with the phenolic compounds could be a way of increasing the beneficial properties of olive oil without raising its caloric content, constituting a nutraceutical strategy to enhance HDL cardioprotective properties.
