Hydroxytyrosol Benefits Muscle Differentiation and Muscle Contraction and Relaxation
This invention is related to the use of hydroxytyrosol (“HT”), or an olive juice extract containing hydroxytyrosol as an agent to improve muscle differentiation and thus improve or maintain the body’s adaptation to exercise.
It is also related to the use of hydroxytyrosol (“HT”), or an olive juice extract containing hydroxytyrosol as an agent to improve calcium signaling and to improve skeletal muscle contraction and relaxation.
It also relates to pharmaceutical and nutraceutical compositions useful for conditions characterized by altered muscle differentiation especially under inflammatory conditions, such as delayed onset muscle soreness subsequent to strenuous exercise or sarcopenia.
OLIFE naturally contains over 200 milligrams of Hydroxytyrosol which may increase physical efficiency and improve attention. OLIFE 1000 ml contains 93% of (OLIVUM®), our exclusive olive tree leaves’ water infusion rich in Oleuropein, Elenolic Acid, Rutin, Tyrosol and the efficient antioxidant Hydroxytirosol.
It has been scientifically recognized that these molecules have the following effects: antioxidant, antiradical, regulate arterial pressure, improve blood circulation, energizing, hypoglycaemic, lower cholesterol, metabolize lipids and carbohydrates.
