Olive oil and pomegranate improve circulation

In this study, 67 healthy middle-aged adults took a placebo or 9.9 mg of olive oil hydroxytyrosol plus 195 mg of punicalagins from pomegranate per day for eight weeks. After a four-week pause, the two groups switched treatment and placebo for another eight weeks.

Compared to placebo, during the olive oil and pomegranate phases, blood flow and blood pressure improved, and levels of oxidized LDL cholesterol decreased.
