Oleocanthal & Oleacein

THALLON is an olive oil with a very high content in two of the most important phenols – Oleocanthal and Oleacein.

Olive oil polyphenols contribute to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress.
The Oleocanthal, Oleacein and derivatives complex, contained in olive oil with the above concentration, has protective properties for our health and a positive impact on the prevention of heart attacks, in the treatment of inflammation, while recent studies have shown that they are shielding the human body against Alzheimer's disease. Based on the analysis of the concentration of polyphenols in our olive oil, the beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system are ensured with the recommended daily intake of 20g of olive oil.

Here's what scientific studies have found out
about the role of Oleocanthal:

"Oleocanthal has protective activity and could be a possible future treatment of Alzheimer's disease, as it modifies a specific protein and helps purify the brain from the toxic proteins associated with the disease".

Here's what scientific studies have found out
about the role of Oleacein:

"Oleacein protects red blood cells from oxidative mediated hemolysis and hence their destruction, even at low dosages".
Publication of study:

"Oleacein plays a special role in decreasing the progression of atherosclerosis, the most important cause of stroke or heart attack".
