Olives health benefit

Olives prevent cancer cell appearance and growth.

It has been found at the University of Granada that maslinic acid prevents cancer and regulates apoptosis in cancer growth. This ingredient is found in olive skin wax taken from the broken olive pulp.

Maslinic acid regulates cell growth and helps control the hypertrophy and hyperplasia process. This is beneficial in cancer treatment. Professor L. Cara from the department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, and Ph D student, Fermando Zurita found three advantages of Maslinic acid. The first is highly cytoxic, which is different from anti-carcinogenic products. Second, it is a less toxic and more natural compound that only acts on carcinogenic cells. Third, it prevents cancer appearance and has a preventative nature.

Even though Professor L.Cara studied the effect of maslinic acid for treating colon cancer, the acid can be effective in many types of tumors. This has only been tested on mice, but could easily be tested on humans in the near future.
