The consumption of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) in Mediterranean countries has shown beneficial effects.

A wide range of evidence indicates that phenolic compounds present in EVOO are endowed with anti-inflammatory properties.

Scientists evaluated the effects of EVOO-polyphenol extract (PE) in a model of rheumatoid arthritis, the collagen-induced arthritis model in mice.

On day 0, DBA-1/J mice were immunized with bovine type II collagen. On day 21, mice received a booster injection. PE (100 and 200 mg/kg) was orally administered once a day from days 29 to 41 to arthritic mice.
