The tyrosol esters are a group of promising phytonutrients (health boosting, plant based chemical compounds) that can only be sourced from olives and olive oil. They are not officially classed as essential nutrients but studies suggest that they could fight free radicals, reduce unnecessary inflammation and more. In this article I will be taking a detailed look at 5 tyrosol ester benefits.
1) BOOSTING YOUR KIDNEYS:
Your kidneys are a crucial organ that filter waste materials from your blood, regulate blood pressure and more. Fortunately, early evidence indicates that the tyrosol esters may protect the kidneys from disease and ensure they stay in tip top shape. However, additional research is needed before this can be confirmed.
2) PREVENTING FUNGAL INFECTIONS:
Fungal infections are caused by fungi (spore producing microorganisms which include mould, mushrooms and yeast). They usually develop in the lungs or on the skin after touching or inhaling fungal spores. The good news is that the tyrosol esters may be able to help you avoid fungal infections. Early research indicates that these phytonutrients are powerful antifungals (substances that fight fungal infections). However, additional research is needed before these fungal fighting benefits can be confirmed.
3) PROTECTING AGAINST VIRAL INFECTIONS:
Unlike most infections, viral infections host themselves inside your body's cells and constantly mutate into new strains. This makes them extremely difficult to treat. Fortunately, early studies indicate that the tyrosol esters may be powerful antivirals (substances that inhibit the growth of viral infections). However, more evidence is required before this can be confirmed.
4) PREVENTING CANCER:
Cancer is a nasty health disorder where the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) in your body's cells is disrupted. This then causes your cells to grow in a rapid, out of control way and ultimately form into a tumour which can become cancerous. If it does become cancerous, this tumour then moves to other parts of the body and destroy the cells around it along the way. The good news is that provisional research suggests that the tyrosol esters may offer significant protection from cancer. However, further studies are required before these cancer fighting properties can be confirmed.
5) RELIEVING PAIN:
If you regularly suffer from headaches or other types of pain you may want to give the tyrosol esters a try. These plant based nutrients mimic the action of ibuprofen and can minimise the pain associated with inflammation.
Olives and olive oil have been recognised as a health boosting food for many years and with all these impressive tyrosol ester benefits it is not hard to see why. Althought the research is still in the early stages you should fill up these foods regularly to give your body a healthy dose of tyrosol esters.
