It was evaluated that the derivative of oleuropein, oleacein (3,4-DHPEA-EDA; 3,4-dihydroxyphenylethanol-elenolic acid dialdehyde), was a potent inhibitor of an angiotensin
converting enzyme (ACE) and neutral endopeptidase (NEP) in contrary to oleuropein, which was not active (Hansen et al.
increases blood pressure by directing the kidneys to hold onto more salt and by increasing levels of the hormone aldosterone, which also directs the kidneys to retain salt.

II, such as vascular smooth muscle cell overgrowth (hypertrophy).
