Prevents cardiovascular diseases

Extra virgin olive oil reduces bad cholesterol levels and increases good cholesterol levels thanks to the rich presence (over 70%) of monounsaturated fats. This type of fat reduces cholesterol levels in the blood, preventing cardiovascular diseases and improving heart health. Furthermore, thanks to the presence of polyunsaturated fats and essential fatty acids, such as linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid, Extra Virgin Olive Oil helps brain health.

Rich in natural antioxidants

Rich in natural antioxidants Extra Virgin Olive Oil is naturally rich in polyphenols, natural antioxidants rich in Vitamin E which reduce the aging process and protect cell membranes.

The perception of fruity and bitter-spicy depends on the presence of these molecules which give structure and character to the flavor of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Furthermore, a high concentration of polyphenols protects the oil from oxidation, giving it a longer shelf life.

The more or less high presence of these molecules depends on the raw material, the short processing time and the low extraction temperature of around 20 degrees.

Another advantage is to improve the absorption of vitamins, in particular A, E, D and K2.

Thanks to the numerous substances present in Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a link has been found between its consumption and the risk of breast cancer. In fact, EVOO produced without the addition of chemical substances contains phytochemicals that inhibit the receptor responsible for the proliferation of tumor cells. According to research published in BMC cancer, the phytochemical polyphenols contained in EVOO slow down the HER2 breast cancer gene. The two polyphenols responsible for this extraordinary property are Lignans and Secoirodoids, present only in the highest qualities of oil or those cold pressed as this production method preserves the concentration of these substances. Furthermore, the presence of oleic acid, according to a study by the University of Bari, would help prevent intestinal tumors. This substance manages to block the inflammation of intestinal cells, preventing the formation of malignant tumors.
