Olive oil. Liquid health.
A great guardian 

 

At times when people tend to care more for their health and adopt habits that preserve it, it is not by chance that the Mediterranean diet has been recognized and recommended by a multitude of scientific researchers and clinical nutritionists who study and analyse its benefits. Olive oil is the base of this diet and it is also known as the Mediterranean Gold, thanks to the benefits it offers to the human body.
Olive oil, rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants not only reduces the possibility of heart diseases and cancer but also provides inflammatory protection against diseases as diabetes, hypertension, arthritis and asthma.

Specifically it has been clinically observed that olive oil:

 

  • Reduces bad cholesterol (LDL)

  • Preserves good cholesterol in blood (HDL)

  • Helps bowels and digestive system function properly

  • Contains Antioxidants that help in the prevention of heart diseases

  • Prevents various types of cancer

  • Helps the metabolism of diabetics

  • Is beneficial for the skin cells


The qualitative olive oil is just the beginning of a healthier diet.
For a more attentive and tasteful diet combine with: fresh vegetables, legumes, fish, white meat and red meat in smaller quantities.
