Frequently Asked Questions About HIDROX®

What make HIDROX® so unique?
HIDROX®, is a premium dietary supplement containing antioxidant (Olea europaea extract,is a patented formulation that includes hydroxytyrosol and other polyphenols) derived from the pulp of olives.

How does HIDROX®, work?
The patented Olea europaea extract contained in the HIDROX® product, are absorbed through the gastrointestinal system and into the blood stream where they help fight the toxic free radicals found in the human body.

Why is it different from other antioxidants?
HIDROX®, containing our proprietary Olea europaea extract is the first antioxidant from the olive fruit. It has the benefits of olive oil and the Mediterranean diet without the calories. It contains a family of antioxidants called polyphenols, which are among the most potent natural radical scavengers.

Is HIDROX®, better than Oleuropein (and other leaf products) and why?
Studies have shown that Oleuropein, a large precursor of hydroxytyrosol, is poorly absorbed into the blood stream where antioxidant activity is most required. HIDROX®, however, contains hydroxytyrosol which is a small molecule that is absorbed into the gastrointestinal system and blood stream, and penetrates the body tissues.

Is HIDROX®, a proven clinical product with supported patent?
Yes, Professor Dr. Roberto Crea has been granted two patents for his process to recover hydroxytyrosol from olive wastewater. A third patent is pending for the formulation of our proprietary Olea europaea extract (patented formulation that includes hydroxytyrosol and other polyphenols). This formulation has been studied by many scientists internationally and its efficacy was clinically proven with the support of laboratories around the world.

What is hydroxytyrosol found in our patented formulation?
It is the olive natural polyphenol with the highest level of free radical scavenging activity ever reported for any natural antioxidant compound.

What is the activity/potency of HIDROX®?
HIDROX® contains high concentrations of its patented Olea europaea extract with hydroxytyrosol. It has the highest free radical protection ever reported for an antioxidant compound and its ORAC is approximately 27,000 æmol TE/g.

What is ORAC?
ORAC, an abbreviation for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, is a test tube analysis that measures the power of foods and other chemical substances to neutralize free radicals or act as an antioxidant.

What is the concentration of Polyphenol in 1 gm of HIDROX®?
Approximately 60 mg.

What kind of health improvements is possible?
Polyphenols from olives have been associated with well being and reduction of physical stress. Laboratories around the world have also shown that polyphenols from olive oil have been associated with healthier breast tissue, colon function and cardiovascular function; as well as reduction of stress from secondary smoke and prevention of skin damage.

Can I get the same benefit by eating olives?
No, olives that have been processed for retail sale have been pickled and the antioxidant effect is dramatically reduced as a result. You would need to consume at least 4 to 6 ounces of olive oil a day to obtain the same antioxidant effect as 2 gm of HIDROX®.

Are there any side effects?
HIDROX®, has been tested by qualified labs and no side effects on animals have been found at the highest recommended FDA dosage of 2g/kg.

Is it compatible with other drugs?
