In recent years particularly is appointed their ability to regulate the immune system by affecting the multiplication and the activity of leucocytes as well and the production of cytokines and other factors which participate to the immunological system.
Moreover the ingredients of olive ( hydroxytyrosol- tyrosol- oleuropein) intervene to the procedure of copy and multiplication of DNA many virulent factors, acting thus effectively against respiratory infections such as the common cold. By stopping this procedure the magnitude of viral load cannot overwhelm the immune system and so the organism defends himself adequately.
