- A range of studies implicate activation of the Sir T proteins in longevity and the extension of life span. Resveratrol affects the Sir T proteins and it is considered to have effects on longevity.
- An important animal study has now identified hydroxytyrosol as an important natural product which leads to greater effects on key longevity proteins compared to resveratrol.
- Hydroxytyrosol is more effective than resveratrol in increasing levels of longevity proteins and protecting animal tissue against injury. It significantly raises the levels of multiple longevity proteins and it leads to lower levels of cell death compared to resveratrol.
- Combined with its other demonstrated effects in published animal and human studies, including its powerful antioxidant, anti inflammatory, cardioprotective, and anti bacterial effects, hydroxytyrosol has emerged as a powerful natural product with multiple beneficial effects in animals and humans. Furthermore, hydroxytyrosol has an exceptionally strong safety profile that has been verified by the FDA.
