Individuals use olive oil against atherogenesis and cardiovascular disease because it appears to lessen the risk factors for cardiac disease.

The compounds play role as thromboxane release, repressing platelet accumulation and free radical foragers. Initial studies recommend that olive oil may lessen the thickness of aortic arch in hypertensive animals. Olive oil appears to lessen the cardiomyocyte death modestly, which is responsible for left ventricular hypertrophy. Olive oil may also have anti-inflammatory impacts by increasing anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acid concentrations and decreasing pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acid concentrations. Oleic acid constituent of olive oil, which is an omega-9 monounsaturated fatty acid, appears to competitively reduce the production of leukotrienes and inflammatory prostaglandins. Oleic acid metabolites may also hold the production process of inflammatory cytokines. Olive oil also consists of oleocanthal, which may be responsible for anti-inflammatory effects of olive oil. Oleocanthal represses both cyclooxygenase (COX) type 1 and type 2. But it does not inhibit lipoxygenase. Some scientists believe that olive oil may have a part in protecting from colon cancer. Utilization of olive oil appears to decrease generation of deoxycholic acid, a bile acid thought to be included in the improvement of polyp formation preceding colorectal cancer and from mucosal changes as well.
