During the September 19th meeting, MAGISNAT professors and researchers discussed the topic regarding the usefulness of olive polyphenols to rebalance the intestinal microbiome and to help fight diseases such as candidiasis or COVID.
Several studies have been conducted showing how olive polyphenols when ingested as a food (extra virgin olive oil, olives) or dietary supplement and (olive polyphenol extracts) can improve the gut microbiome by reducing the growth of harmful bacteria and, for example, eliminating candida albicans.
As discussed at meetings in past weeks, regular consumption of polyphenols, extracted from plants typical of the Mediterranean diet, has been associated with a reduced risk of several chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease (CVD) and neurodegenerative disorders. In addition, it has been shown in several studies that, besides having a preventive action against several diseases, olive tree polyphenols can reduce the growth of fungi in the gut microbiome.
In particular, following the work published by Marco Petrillo of the European Commission, Joint Research Centre (JRC), Ispra, Italy, in which it is hypothesized that SARS-CoV-2 develops in the gut microbiome, it has been shown by many works that olive tree polyphenols have an effect against the SARS-CoV-2 virus and that being taken as a food or dietary supplement they carry out their effect in the gut.
Of course, it is important to emphasize that the above is in no way intended as medical advice and is in no way an indication to consider olive as a healing plant. Thus, none of the statements made in this article attribute to olive tree polyphenols or dietary supplements therapeutic or preventive properties toward any disease or condition, including COVID.
IN NUTRITION, FOLLOW THE SCIENCE
The main objective of this meeting was the importance of the usefulness of olive polyphenols to rebalance the intestinal microbiome and to help fight diseases:
*“None of the reported studies or the patent can be used to claim the properties of dietary supplements. Dietary supplements do not possess any therapeutic or preventive properties.”
