In vitro culture
Moreover, Juan Bautista Barroso says there are no studies that indicate that all varieties of EVOO contain nitrooleic, “but we can say that in some in vitro laboratory studies, during the intake of olive oil in gastric stimulation, with highly acidic pH and in the presence of nitrites, which are abundant in vegetables, nitrooleic production is favored. It passes into the bloodstream where it exerts its anti-inflammatory and cardiovascular signaling effects”.
University of Jaén has stated that from now on this research group aims to establish the possible role that interested companies can have in commercialising this oil rich in a molecule with anti-inflammatory function and cardiovascular benefits, “of which there numerous studies that support it”.
