The effect of Ligstroside aglycone on breast cancer

Ligstroside aglycone inhibits the growth of breast cancer. It causes a reduction in the number of HER2 tyrosine kinase receptors, which are presented in large amounts in breast cancer cells and lead to their uncontrolled proliferation. (ref.Javier A Menendez et al., BMC Cancer 2008)

Oleuropein Aglycone

Experiments in mice show the beneficial effect of oleuropein aglycon on the progression of Alzheimer’s diseaser

The dietary supplementation of oleuropein aglycone strongly improves the cognitive performance of young/ middle-aged mice, fact that indicates the beneficial effect of oleuropein aglycone on the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease. (ref.Cristina Grossi et al., 2013)

The beneficial effect of Oleuropein aglycone against type II diabetes

Oleuropein aglycone inhibits or slows down the progression of type II diabetes, by inhibiting the aggregation and toxicity of amylin in pancreatic cells, a substance that is directly related to the pathogenicity of the disease (ref.Stefania Rigacci et al., 2009)
